Lucy hates it even more than we do. We had to buy more boots for her because they got soaked every time we took her outside. We put paper towels inside and hang them on hooks to dry. So far we haven't had to resort to a hair dryer. We've washed a lot more dog towels that get wet and soiled when we dry off Lucy. (Another great perk of a long marriage is that one accumulates a lot of towels no longer good enough for company but just fine for dogs.)
We've kept more lights on during the day to pretend it is lighter than it really is. And we've treated ourselves with more "comfort" foods than usual. And we hope for the rain to stop.
We periodically take off Lucy's boots to give let her feet air out.
Our son had a birthday so Violet got up early that morning to make him a cake. She took her job quite seriously. She has a great little kitchen center,
She starts with the eggs of course
As you can see from the playroom floor, the poor child has so few toys. Believe it or not, most are gifts and not purchased by her parents.
Next comes the cake mix.
Don't forget to put the mixing bowl back under the beaters, Violet
It won't be long before she is really stirring things and helping in the kitchen. Her daddy is an excellent cook so I'm sure she will learn her way around the kitchen as soon as possible. Meanwhile, a pretend birthday cake will do just fine.
I had my scans but have not met with the oncologist for the results. That will be on the day for the next chemotherapy treatment where I will either continue the present regimen or switch based on the scans. The worst part of the scans involved NO CAFFEINE that morning, only water. I can deal with fasting easily but no coffee? It was almost 11:00 when the scans were finished so I drove immediately to a bagel shop near the hospital and grabbed a large coffee. Oh my, it was good. I also bought some New York style bagels to freeze. Many people from here drive over regularly to buy those bagels.
Today's quote comes from my daughter's favorite Winnie-the-Pooh character, Eeyore:
"The nicest thing about the rain is that it stops. Eventually."
An anonymous quote in keeping with my negative attitude about this excessive rain:
"Remember; not every rainy day holds within it the promise of any rainbow."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK, EVERYONE
