Rainy Day

Not much new here.  It started raining during the night and has been raining heavily ever since.  It did lighten up for about 10 minutes and Rocky and I were out the door for a quick walk.    I don't  think he likes walking in the rain any more than I do.

We are having a lazy day today.  I heard yesterday evening that a blizzard was hitting Redding, CA just north of us; the town is at about 500' of elevation and I don't think they get snow very often - but a blizzard came in off the Pacific last night and blanketed Redding.  Here, we just have temps in the 50's and rain - I don't mind this weather at all.

A niece of mine is arriving in Sacramento with her husband this weekend, flying in from Milwaukee.  I hope the weather will clear up for a bit - they wanted to go to Reno as well as to visit my sister in Nevada, but the roads have been closed for a while due to the snow and icy conditions.  It's funny how a person changes over the years:  I could never understand why my parents let the weather dictate if they went anywhere outside the house.  Now I've become my parents!

Jeannie came by after work yesterday to give me my monthly B-12 shot; she stayed for a while and I broke out a bottle of wine which we enjoyed with some snacks.  I don't often get a chance to spend time with just her, and it was a real treat for me.  Also, she is Rocky's absolute most favorite person in the world so he was in a joyous state, for sure.

There is really nothing happening in my little corner of the world that is worth blogging about.  I should be grateful that nothing is happening!

Enjoy the rest of the week, and I'll be back soon.


  1. Please enjoy the nuttin doin. It has been hectic the last few days with the electric troubles with the Castle.

    1. I felt so bad when I read about your electrical problems. I hpe you're getting everything straightened out without costing yourself a kings' ransom!

  2. Your comment about Rocky not liking the rain is interesting. Most Labs love water of any kind.
    My Black Lab would sit outside in the rain all day if we would let her (we didn't) and in the summer we couldn't keep her out of the lake unless she was on a leash. They are all different.

    Waiting for the rain to start down here in the Southern California mountains. We have about a foot of snow on the ground from the last week or so. Now they are predicting up to 4 inches of rain over the next few days. It's either feast of famine with the snow and rain. Stay dry.

  3. This is cold and dreary rain, so I don't know how he will be when introduced to a swimming pool or a lake.

  4. We will get that storm system tomorrow. It was supposed to be in the mid 70's today but I don't know if it even made it to 70. At least we don't have to worry about a drought for a while

  5. I am glad you got to spend some mother/daughter time with Jeannie and a bottle of wine makes it even better!

    I smiled when you said "Now I have become my parents"...I think sooner or later we all come to that realization when we swore we would never let it happen to us :-(

  6. Hey, I thought that it was always sunny and warm in California, You know, just like everything is big in Texas (grin).
