Rain… Day 719 02NOV10
The strangest this happened this morning, water started falling from the sky onto the parched earth outside. It has been so long since it rained I honestly cannot remember the last time. Our poor plants have been literally withering from the heat and lack of rain. I doubt that the little bit we received will make a noticeable difference but it is a start in the right direction. The boys had an excellent day playing together now that the steroids monster has been shut up until his next appearance. What a crazy dynamic we have between our two youngest, Jarrod is steadfastly watchful over the very mercurial Joshua.
After dinner we all took a long walk on the golf course. The breeze still harbored the scent of the earlier showers and the grass looked ever so slightly greener than the last time. It was great to have the whole family enjoying being outdoors and together, watching Joshua and Jarrod chase each other and fall laughing unto the soft grass of the greens. We came home ready to relax before getting ready for slumber. I hope the rain comes again...
