I love a rainy day. I know I can’t be the only one.
I spent the morning painting a concrete floor. As I sit here now, my lower back is not happy.
I went to the grocery store this afternoon. There was a woman shopping who I’m sure went home and told her family that I am a lunatic. First, she had to move my cart that I left in the middle of the aisle when I was distracted by the cheese section. Second, I stopped to look at chicken, let go of my cart and it kept going. It almost hit that same woman. Of all the people at the damn store. I then started rambling and told her I wasn’t thinking straight today and she just walked away. Yikes. I need more sleep.
I met a mallard duck couple in the woods. We startled each other. But I got to watch them fly away. Have you ever seen the blue in the female’s outspread wings? Holy shit. Picture the emerald green neck of the male, flying next to this beautiful deep blue in the female’s wings. A literal jaw dropping moment for me the middle of the brown woods.
I have to share this photo of Gracie today at the door. I’d like to point out the difference between her and the previous photos I’ve posted of Jenna and McFly looking in the door. Jenna and McFly are saying, Hey, I’m here and I’d really like to come in and get cozy. Gracie is saying, Hurry the f*ck up and let me in. That’s her!
