I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much rain. Every single day it rains. My plants are beginning to look sad and droopy from too much of a good thing.
As the climate warms, the atmosphere holds and release more moisture. Which means that downpours are very much on the rise.
A Very Rainy Weekend
Last night after all the chores were done I laid down on my bed and started reading a new book. I could hear the soft patter of rain on the roof, which I find quite calming.
The book I’m reading is about a man and a woman, happily married with one child, a toddler. The boy is two and has brain cancer. He has been in the hospital in the UK for several months.
The doctors tell the parents that they think it is time for palliative care. He has brain damage from the tumor and the surgery.
The husband wants to research options in his home country and take his boy back to the US for treatment. The wife wants to let the boy die peacefully because he’s already been through so much.
A court case ensues. Now estranged, they plead their case as they see it.
Either Max wins and takes his son home to the US. Or Pip wins and they let Dylan die a peaceful death.
What a horribly wretched situation to be in. Makes you thankful for what you have, doesn’t it?
I bought two little hedgehog stuffed toys for Ivy at Tuesday Morning. They looked like they’d be harder for her to tear apart.
But, she won’t have anything to do with them.
Does she know they’re hedgehogs instead of mice? Surely not. I guess I’ll have to find her another mouse baby.
I tease her with them, toss them across the floor because she loves to chase things. And she just stands there and looks at me.
Personally I think the hedgehogs are much cuter than the mouse.
The hedgehogs are on the couch, untouched. Unwanted. Poor little hedgehogs.
Yesterday in between rain showers I went out and once again started cutting back the tall lemon balm and peppermint in the blue raised bed.
Someone asked the other day about Jade, the ginkgo biloba jade butterfly tree. Here she is, where she’s been since I brought home the wicker settee and placed it in the corner.
Jade seems to be growing lopsided. Not sure what to do about that.
Charlie had three laser treatments last week. He is showing some improvement. I’m wondering if I should look into a place for pets that provide even more types of therapy.
More expensive, I know. But I owe Charlie the best treatment I can find. It’s called Pet Acupuncture & Sports Medicine Facility.
I recall phoning them last year, but then he got better. Maybe I should give them a call today to inquire about his condition and what they could possibly do to help him.
A week ago I decided to try Netflix. I’d never watched it before. But I liked the price. Under $10 a month is something I feel comfortable with.
So I’ve been watching Good Girls and yesterday started watching Ozark with Jason Bateman. A great series. Both of them are.
I actually didn’t think I could sit and watch TV for a couple of hours, but I’m finding that the shows are so intriguing I manage to pass the time completely engrossed in the story line.
One night last week I watched the 2007 American Gangster with Denzel Washington. Boy, can that man act.
Have you tried Netflix? If so, what are you favorite shows?
