...for the skies to clear. My sympathies go out to the people of Oregon and Washington. I understand you have many days that are like ours today: gray.

And I’d like to remind everyone that I was not the one complaining about the warm weather. So if we can have some of that back as well, I’d be grateful.

The day is on hold. The week is on hold. The month is on hold.

But, there were at least four good moments:

First, the girl that was in the ER room yesterday after a car ran into her, came by today. Despite a bruised shoulder and an immobilized elbow, she was as smiling and bouncy as ever.

Secondly: I cleaned the farmhouse. Top to bottom. Ed would find that a curious reason to feel accomplished and yet I do.

Thirdly: Ed said today – I didn’t think it would be this much fun having you live at the farmhouse. Emphasis on the word “this.” You have to know him to understand that it was a very sweet comment.

Fourthly (but not lastly): I sure have had a lot of nice emails, phone calls and comments. Thanks for those! The world doesn’t feel that upside down.


I’m just waiting for that streak of sunshine.
