Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Another Dark Day

. . . of Autumn Rain.

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.
—From A Child’s Garden of Verses, by Robert Louis Stevenson

Around two a.m., today’s rain started in force. On and off all morning, we’ve had a deluge. Gullies run red in the fields, and the cats don’t want to go out. This morning’s news reported tornado warnings and flash flood warnings in counties not far away.

A good day to do housework.
