Rain and the Cat

Early this morning the familiar sound of rain pattering on the deck woke us up. It?¢â??¬â??¢s been months since we?¢â??¬â??¢ve had rain. Up North it used to come every couple of weeks or so. Hearing it here, briefly transported us to another place and time as we dozed in bed.

However, what I though was cleaning the decks on the boat, was really just making small mud puddles. The rain wasn?¢â??¬â??¢t quite strong enough to really wash off the salt and the dust. Now all the dust has been pushed into muddy piles where we walk, nice. So much for a free boat wash.

On another note, Jezebel, is doing better. She still has her stitches in, but she?¢â??¬â??¢s healing quickly and her appetite is back. We?¢â??¬â??¢re really happy about that, because we have never seen her so skinny. She?¢â??¬â??¢s supposed to get her stitches out in a couple of days, and hopefully she?¢â??¬â??¢ll be ready to travel next week!
