The sultry dog days of summer won’t come until July or August, but I’ve decided we are having dog and cat days right now. The blooms du jour are dogwood and dandelion.
I found out this evening that jeans are thicker than I thought. It rained during the day, but I didn’t think of that when I stepped onto the deck. There were still lots of clouds about with just a bit of blue sky in the west. Watching the fading light seemed like a good idea, so I sat down. It took about three seconds for me to realize the plastic cushion held rain like a sponge, and the wetness was seeping upwards. Funny thing! I got up quicker than I sat down!
