I hope everyone has a wonderful day, with good cheer, good food, good people to be around.
Everything outdoors is wet this morning but right now the sun is shining. Rain is in the forecast though.
Rocky was acting strangely yesterday, looking up at the ceiling and seeming to see or sense something that I could't understand. He was nervous and edgy, and then when the rain started pouring down, I understood. He has never seen rain before - good thing there wasn't lightning and thunder. I think he was a little frightened at first and he just didn't know what to make of it. I put on a rain parka and walked him in the rain several times and I think he enjoyed it! I had a difficult time at first wondering why he was looking so intently at the upper walls and ceiling, and thought maybe he saw spirits that I coudn't see. I guess he saw the spirit of rain! With a dog's acute sense of hearing it's probable that they can hear rain coming in their direction before it actually gets here. It's like watching a child grow and seeing their wonderment of the world around them.
My daughter and her family arrived back in the U.S. yesterday and spent the night in an airport hotel in Miami. They will be arriving in Sacramento in a few hours, and I'm glad they are safe and sound. I've traveled in so many parts of the world and loved it, but I'm nervous when any of my kids go far from home. Having one go to the Grand Canyon and another go to Jamaica in the span of about 10 days, I nearly worried myself to death. Actually I'm proud of their desire to explore the world, and I think they got at least a part of that from me. As I told one of them, "It's a mother's job to worry".
I wish everyone a good day!
