~SOMETIMES REALITY NEEDS OUR FULL ATTENTION~


An old photo of Dan and I
 Old and fuzzy as it is and not at all flattering, I love it.   I remember  it was a moment of such laughter, that whatever struck us funny got us to the point that we couldn't look at one another  without howling with laughter all over again.
I hope when Dan and I are long gone from this world, when our family and friends remember us..they remember us like this.  


So much is going on right now that I won't be blogging for a few more days.  I have tried to visit a bit..but right now it is easier to do a few visits and try to  stay caught up a little bit, with what is happening with everyone the best I can.
..however  
Right now it's difficult.  
:)
You won't miss a lot with me being gone, but I will miss a great deal not keeping up with what's going on with all of you.
:(
See you soon...don't wait up.  I have my own key and will let myself in..

~TODAY'S ANTIC'S.. and RAIN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...~

Antic's?  :) There are none...I wrote that and then couldn't think of a single thing.
Ate a bagel.
Went into SHOCK at more rainfall today
Read some of my new book..
Sat in the lawn swing.
Drank some coffee
Wished I hadn't
...then dozed off anyway.
Watched the rain fall..
SMILED! 

It thundered down on our metal patio roof.....poured off the back...can you see that precious rain there in the corner?

It poured off the front..

It poured off the garage..

Mele went out and lay in it...under the umbrella...she obviously loved the cool dampness..
(bricks and rock hold the umbrella down.  Not so pretty but it works.

...and PH read on!

I should have taken pictures of the thermometer.  It dropped ten degrees right in front of our eyes yesterday..
Today...five degrees.

OH GOOD GRIEF!  I see the sun peeking through.

Then I thought...I HOPE this rain reached our farmers in the Central Valley where it is so desperately needed!  

Love,
Mona
