Into One's Life a Little Rain Must Fall

I was the first to arrive at San Souci yesterday for a family picnic. I stood on the beach and looked up at the sky. The wind was just starting to pick up and I did not know if it was dark because it wasn't quite 6 AM or was it rain clouds. I just knew it wasn't going to be a nice sunrise.

As the dawn started to break I could see a ship out on the horizon.

Then I noticed this big lump on the beach that turned out to be two guys and two girls sleeping it off, what ever "it" was. 
Then it started to get dark again.

The wind really started to pick up.

We started to gather under the tarp. I started to cover my camera as you can see on the corner of this photo and the kids threw blankets on themselves to keep the rain off them. 

My son stood under his umbrella and watched the rainbow as he talked away on the phone.

I looked down the beach and a few people were starting to come out again and it was getting brighter

At last the sun shone brightly. Ships started to pass, sails were set aloft and people propped up their chairs. Our friends and family started to arrive, kids went down to the ocean, and a good time was had by all.

Today I got nico off to school with the neighbor who takes turns with me taking and bringing the kids to school and home. I swept the front and back yard and got a load of laundry in the machine. 

Then I got all my things together to go to the swimming exercise class at the "Y."  As I went through the house closing windows and locking up, Max vigilantly clip, clopped behind me. Slowly he lagged further behind as he realized I was going to be leaving the house. I hate, hate, hate leaving him at home. And you know what? I hate leaving the house too! As I closed the sliding door I thought to myself, why am I going when I want to stay. 

So I started opening all the windows again, pulled open the sliding door, dumped all my bag out and put my purse away and patted Max who was now realizing that I was staying home. I started to clean the house. 

I was actually happier cleaning the house then going to the pool. Well of course I was going to the pool to excercise not to swim. But I told myself I will do the 2 mile walk with Max tonight to make up for it. Well that's what I told myself and since Max doesn't understand what I'm talking about he won't be able to hold it against me. 

So as I cleaned I made a list of things I needed to do. I've almost finished that list and when Nico comes home we will go to get me some glasses so I can say I've accomplished all that I WANTED to do today. Now to go and read a book. Wow life is grand.
