I’m only a mom to some four-legged fur kids. I really don’t think I would have been an adequate mom to the two-legged variety. As you know from my whining, we’ve been steeped in the January frozen fog for some time now. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we had spectacular weather. Bright sunshine but still very cold. I went to a quilt show at the Oregon Gardens with a friend on Friday, went for a long walk with the dog on Saturday, and on Sunday, I drove back up the freeway to a little shop in Jefferson (The Purple Frog) because they had a fabric I strongly suspected was a match for an unfinished quilt and I needed to take a swatch with me. I’m happy to report the trip was a success and I will now be able to finish a rather ugly lonestar quilt I started probably back in 2007.
But anyway, back to the fur kid. The rain began on Monday. Not much at first, but yesterday (Tuesday) we had some good steady drizzle going. I decided I’d take my eye-rolling, heavily-sighing dog to the park for a game of fetch. Of course, once we got there, it began to pour in earnest. Lucky for Ozzie, his mom knows how to play in the rain.
We have more rain today, with quite a brisk wind, but we’ll probably go back again before it gets dark. Oregon had the driest year in recorded weather history last year, and we’re happy to do our part to end the drought by dancing in the rain at the dog park.
