The Miracle Of The Rain

Mr. Moon got home last night and I'm not sure I've ever seen a wearier man. I asked him if he was going to be able to switch back to night-sleep and he said, "Oh yes."
And he did. He slept for ten hours.
This is obviously the sleeping house.
I am so glad to have him home. I think he is glad to be here. He is unpacking and being domestic, fitting himself back into his life in this house with me. It is good to have him here to go and find and get a kiss from. He and Maurice have greeted each other and Maurice is glad to have him back too. She slept between us last night after crunching a frog or a lizard in the corner. I am grateful she did not try to share.

He had planned to cut the grass today. I had wanted to get in the garden to weed.
However, this is happening.

Except that in the time it took me to upload the video, it has started raining harder. Perhaps we are already getting bands of rain from Erika which overnight, became a "remnant" as they say.
I imagine the chickens are huddled somewhere dry. This is a bit much, even for the duck.

I keep thinking it's Sunday but it is not. A good day, however, to stay inside, or at least on the porch. I feel better but my hips, which seem to hold all of my illnesses, still hurt but that may be this weather. I am not complaining. I am quite content to stay here on this side of the rain curtains, letting all the doings of the world stay on the other side, my man and my cat close at hand in our cozy world.
For today, at least.
It is good.


  1. I am glad Mr. Moon is home. The rain is a good excuse to stay inside and just be.

  2. I will be passing by your way in about an hour. I will wave at you from I 10. Gail

  3. Jesus fucking christ woman! every time I get busy and let blogs slide it takes me four hours just to catch up with you and no I'm not going to comment on them all or even read them all (though I did scan through them. I can't even think of anything interesting to write about twice a week! so no gator boots for you.

  4. Birdie- It has been a very sweet day.

    Angella- We took the cozy and ran with it! So to speak.

    Gail- Hey, Woman!

    Ellen Abbott- I'm obsessed. I'm sorry. Please forgive me and don't give up on me.

  5. I guess we will get the remnants tomorrow and throughout next week. A lot of rain is coming anyway. More frogs, less riding. Oh well...Glad that your man is home. Nothing like coming home after being away.

  6. Cozy is how I feel when I read your blog.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
