So the whole “atmospheric river” label feels pretty accurate. We had a lot of rain on Saturday, a bit of a break on Sunday (while I’m writing this) them more rain moving in overnight and through Monday. It’s been years since we’ve seen this much rain! Maggie, however, is so interested in the changes in the back yard with the retaining walls and planters, she could care less about the rain. She’s out there investigating as much as I’ll let her. Then when she comes in, she gives me a look of utter disbelief that I insist on drying her off and cleaning her feet. As soon as I release her from that particular indignity, she runs to Wizard and sits by him as if he will keep her safe should I decided to assault her again with my unreasonable insistence that she not track mud and cement reside on my carpet.
In some good news, it was dry enough for Wizard to go to Monster Jam with Turbo and his family. The bad news is I’m home writing this while they are there I haven’t been feeling my best and didn’t want to slow anyone down. However, I’m sincerely happy that Wizard went. From the pics I’ve seen so far, they are all having a great time. I am not sick, just dealing with some physically crap that’s limiting my ability to do all the things I want to do. I have to see my doctor this week for a boring routine thing, so I’ll bring it up to him and we’ll figure out how to tame it.
And in news I don’t even know how to categorize — one of our Sherriff’s deputies was shot and killed as he answered a call on Friday evening. We, along with all the community, are sickened and outraged. It’s always hard to believe when it happens so close to home, but sadly, it’s happening everywhere these days. We are particularly heartbroken for his family, friends and coworkers.
Oh and my hiking shoes came. I think they’ll work!
So that was my weekend, how was yours?
