Get Along Little Doggies...and Kitty.
Today was some weird weather. There was incessant heat mixed with humidity and then there were gully washers and then there were none. The clouds would drop a ton of rain in HUGE drops and then it would be over as quickly as it came...I think this is MAY weather, but the temperatures...those are June/July. I'm not complaining, but I know some kids who were. I was in my room an hour after school with a full five students rushing to get work completed. Ah, procrastinators.
I finally replaced the hose. We got irrigation a couple years ago, and we have a timer set up. Well, last year's hose from the spicket in the alley broke in the winter, so I replaced it. Sunday afternoon, Cora and I were in the bedroom putting clothes away and she said, "It sounds like water is running in the bathroom." I went over and listened...it was coming from the window...I opened the window. I looked out to see the new hose had failed and was spewing forth a multitude of water into our pathetic little garden. (Our onions have grown an inch, the tomatoes seem to be in suspended animation, and the grass in the back yard is like the hair on a man who desperately WANTS hair. Our backyard oasis is still a long way off. DAMMIT.) So, I replaced the hose and we have water to the pathetic yard again.
The kitty came out and play amongst the Chloe-created mess.
