Rushing, Running Rivulets

And the rain, rain, rain
Came down, down, down,
When the rain, rain, rain
Came down, down, down.*

For days, now. I'm trying to remember if the last time I saw the sun was Saturday or Sunday. Or Friday? The point being, that it feels like weeks.

I got to drive the expressways through the deluge for two days straight. I'm not sure which was more nerve-wracking - the slow, bumper-to-bumper crawl, or the trying to drive to speed (Which in Chicago means 65 - 70 mph. The speeds posted are merely suggestions. Starting speeds, as it were.), with visibility non-existent because of the spume churning up from the tires. Don't get me started on the joys of hydro-planing.

Any wonder, then, that I abandoned my "real" knitting last night and came up with this?

blue skies,
green grass.

The cure for sunshine deprivation.

And you still have better bubbles that I get! I paid regular price for the MD without a dustcover on eBay. Maybe once I have the book in hand I will discover the secret. I have my retreat tomorrow/Friday and then orientation THEN MAYBE coffee late next week - sigh
