I just got back from a walk and while I was out, the sun peaked through the clouds for the first time since Saturday. Which is strange because this is sunbaked Texas. For the last five or six years we have been getting way more summer rains than we did for two decades previous. The forecast for this week originally was 70% chance rain on Monday, and sunshine for the rest of the week.
Unfortunately, the sun has stopped shining in more than one way. I got word today that my mother in Iowa is in the hospital again with more heart trouble. Dark clouds hang over our house at the moment for that reason… metaphorically speaking. I am not in good health myself. That 750-mile trip is hard on me. We just got back from the trip to Iowa less than three weeks ago.
But we shall persevere for as long as we can. And hopefully the sun will come out yet again.
