of rain and accessories

Yesterday (today too, actually) it was rainy.  Now, we are familiar with rain (most specifically Portland, Oregon rain, which is a steady drizzle most days!), but Houston rain is different.  First of all, it is upper 70's, and so humid (even before it starts raining) that heaven help any hairstyle you're trying to accomplish.  And second, it's a strange sort of sticky rain.  Hard to explain.  At any rate, when the puppies came in last night, I just had to stick them back in their kennel because they were wet from head to toe.  I think they had been rolling around in a puddle or something!  They weren't very pleased about it, as you can see.


Today I took this shot (in the mirror).  This is one of my very favorite necklaces.  My Grandma Tritz gave it to me a couple years ago.  I can remember her always wearing it!  Love you, Grandma!  (I say that like she's reading this, which I know she is not. She has no desire to learn to operate a computer!)

Hey you- I have lost your email and wanted to write and see how you are. I haven't heard from you in awhile and wanted to see what you have been up to.

Wow! I used to have a necklace almost exactly like that.. I can't remember where I got it - it wasn't new either. It goes really well with the lovely gray blouse. Nice.
