And so it goes. We continue to have daily rain, almost three inches again in the past 24 hours. The constant rains and swollen rivers have profoundly affected our tourist industry. The rafting, kayaking, and tubing companies cannot put people on the flooded fast-moving streams during this, their otherwise busiest season. Tomatoes are rotting on the vines. Corn stalks are knee deep in water. Slides have closed several roads and houses are being undermined and threaten to come crashing down hillsides in some areas.
So I should not complain because we are truly very little affected by all the rain. Just more and more dog towels to wash.
Lucy is bored. Her bed is wet because she just ate an ice cube.
She looks out the dining room window.
Ellie doesn't even look out the window.
It's too depressing.
I'm reminded of Longfellow who said that "Thy fate is the common fate of all; into each life some rain must fall."
Today's quote is from Marcel Proust:
"Let's be grateful for those who give us happiness; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls bloom."
WHATEVER YOUR WEATHER, HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND AND GIVE SOME HAPPINESS.
