The sky is falling ...

TS Newton has moved from Mexico into southern Arizona and with it a lovely steady soaking rain and no wind. What is not to love for a desert dweller?

Emma totally disagrees with rain being a good thing. On our morning walk, when it was still a drip rather than rain, she gave me this: what ?! a walk? but it is r-a-i-n-i-n-g, with a shake of the body and paws at the face. I told her that when we lived in Oregon the dogs had their own stack of towels and they were dried off four times a day.

We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast with all doors and windows open and watched the hummingbirds at the feeders. It is not yet slowing them down. A relaxed indoor day for us.

After a chokingly hot, dry August, I'm delighted with the small amount of rain that we have had in September - including the gentle rain that woke me this morning. Usually this is our last truly hot week and then rain comes with the temperature moderation.

Had i been on your walk this morning, i would have welcomed the rain. Emma is a wimp! Your desert looks lovely a bit wet.
