We have been blessed with some rain over the last several days. Rain that our earth and atmosphere needed desparately! Now with the air quality being drastically improved, I was able to sit outside for quite awhile today and it made me truly appreciate the ability to get outside for fresh air and some sun. I will never take that for granted.
We didn't get to church today because the smoke really did a number on my lungs and ability to breathe so we played it safe and stayed home. I did read some from my bible, a couple of passages that had been recommended to me recently.
While outside I had the pleasure of not one companion but two. Our goofy, beautiful and sassy Molly from next door came by and chilled for a bit in the sun with us. She never stays long but I think she missed us because she typically comes for a visit once or twice a day, which we really enjoy. But with the air being toxic, all of the neighborhood dogs were grounded to the indoors, just like the humans. So it was good to see her smiling, happy face again!
Rory came by a couple of weekends ago and cut back some of our severely overgrown bushes in the garden. Now I have a much better view of the entire yard! I sure do appreciate that he still checks in on us regularly.
I am missing my weekly visits with Rache and Tara but they do a great job of keeping me happy with lots of updates in their chicken and turkey world... plus tons of hilarious short videos and memes. Can't wait to see their lovely, smiling faces soon!
