It’s been doing nothing but raining for the past two days but I’m not complaining, mind you. My husband is finally feeling better today after the last bout with chemo and no more pain pills for me for the stitches in my finger. They make me feel weird.
Here’s the dogwood tree that I can see right outside our bedroom window, with its branches wet and dark in the rain.
I spent Sunday reading by this window then and straightening up what clutter I could. After watching Grey Gardens yesterday, the new movie version, I felt that I needed to get my house in a little more order. Not that it was bad. In yesterday’s post, I don’t want you to think that the movie is awful. On the contrary. There are parts of it that are just beautiful. It’s strange is all. And somewhat depressing.
My husband was looking through this very window in our bedroom on Saturday when he saw a huge groundhog come out of a hole back by Blue Girl’s grave on the edge of the property. The groundhog headed straight for the garden and made its way right through the fence! My husband ran out of the house, startling it back into its hole. At least now we know who is eating our lettuce. I liked it better when I thought it was a family of cute bunnies.
My husband picked a whole bunch of it today, cleaning it all up and putting it in bags in the frig. He also went out and got some new fencing and repaired the area where the groundhog is getting in.
After the storm on Friday evening, I noticed that there was a pink glow coming in the windows of the house. I went outside and captured the photo below. This is SOOC (straight out of camera).
It was really quite beautiful.
My husband made a nice dinner this evening, and cookies for dessert. I am so glad he’s feeling better. I can tell he’s feeling better when he makes his cookies.
So how are things in your neck of the woods?
