It's pouring here -- we'd had no rain and high temps for almost a month and have made up for it in the past three days. Last night we had T-storms that woke me from a sound sleep. Believe me, that's a feat. I'm a sound sleeper -- Richard would have to wake me to breast feed the infants! The only exception to this is when one of them was sick. A cough, a moan, a plaintive call would break through the deepest of sleeps in a flash.
Youngest daughter is moving a little deeper into horse country in a new job. We're happy for her; she's doing what she loves. Can't ask for more than that.
Been a little under the weather this past week and living on chicken broth, Jello, and oyster crackers. Diverticulitis hits every once in a while. And as if the attack itself isn't enough to deal with, the medication is always 'fun'. We were supposed to have left for Hilton Head this morning, but Richard had meetings and projects that interfered. Probably best anyway. Don't want to be in the car for 11 hours with an iffy stomach. Our trip to Washington State is still on, though. We're going out to meet our San Diego friends in Seattle and then drive up to Dakota Creek Winery where we'll help with a Wine/Art Fest. In addition I get to meet up with two really good blogger friends, Brad, from Kuboto Farm and Fiwa! How exciting is that!!
