Was just about to take a walk when suddenly, the heavens opened up and to Maurice's and my bafflement, the rain began to pour down. You can barely even see the blip on the radar but here it is, water pounding the earth which is good. This ground is thirsty and we won't have to water tonight.
Thunder crashes and the air cools and the frogs are roaring their joy.
I have no obligations today and thus, I think I will actually do some housework. Yesterday Owen and I walked through all the rooms, looking for his shoes and I realized (suddenly!) that my floors are in dire need of sweeping. At the very least. We shall not even discuss the dust. Baseboards? Coated in Lloyd's black oily dirt dust. Spider webs everywhere.
Yes. I have plenty to do to keep me busy.
And suddenly, the rain is slacking off. I think I'll be able to take my walk in a few moments.
As we say in Florida- Don't like the weather? Wait twenty minutes, it'll change. Maurice and I wait it out. She closes her eyes, relaxed now that the worst is over. Suddenly (it would appear) she is sleepy.
But suddenly, another crash of thunder rolls across the sky.
Another day in Lloyd.
