We've had a steady deluge for almost a week now. The most rain in 10 years and the rain just keeps coming. I like rain and it has made it all the more cozy to getting ready for Christmas with rain pelting on the skylights. This afternoon the sun came out for a moment and then the rain started again.
Rain + sun = Lizzy was upstairs practicing guitar and then there was this frantic yelling. I thought she was hurt until she came down stairs and I could hear that she was just yelling, "A rainbow!" It was a lovely full bow that seemed to hum. We all went out in the wet to admire it.
We returned to putting lights on the tree. I may be too persnickety or take too many rainbow breaks but it takes me an awful long time to put lights on a tree. John and Will were getting impatient. I told John he could untangle lights for me. I came out from behind the tree and found every outlet in the family room had a long string of lights coming out of it. Also, Will had given up on waiting and hung a dozen red balls.
The lights are all up now. We hung a Christmas garland--a surprise gift from a dear friend-- and Zoey is dancing with her bunny to Christmas music.
