Yup still out here in Point Richmond. It is such a nice little town. However, part of my house sitting duties include watering the plants -- if it is sunny. Well, like much of the book Bel Canto it is just kinda gray outside. It seems like time has kinda stopped.
Then I go outside and see that the little plants need water. But, it looks like rain, I tell them. They don't care and just continue needing water. Today I give in and water -- while it is just sprinkling a light mist of rain.
It is raining pretty hard here now.
PS The Hound looked at me like I was nuts when I was watering in the rain. Guess she was/is right.
