We have had rain for several days. The 4th of July was basically a 'wash' so to speak. Can't ride my 'therapy' horse ... so need to do that. Ah well guess I will take my beverage (iced tea), my book, my chi pup Sirius aka TheDogStar out to the back screen porch. Turn on the ceiling fan and just spend some time reading 'n relaxing 'n listening to the rain. Have a most blessed day my forum friends. Love, hugs & prayers from Vickie in SweetHomeAlabama!
