Finally, today the sun returned. It's been there all the time, but for the last week we have had cloudy, drizzly days with a slow, soaking rain starting on Friday night. I love those dark days when I'm home, but when the morning sky revealed sunshine this morning there was a new spirit in me! I had to think that the sun's arrival was like the frosting on a cupcake (corny, I know)! We needed the rain, but bring on a little sunshine please.
This afternoon was time for a leisurely walk at the nearby park. It had warmed up in to the low 60's and the air was perfect for a walk. What a welcome relief to be back outside!
The little creek in the park actually had water in it. What a welcome sight!
Sawyer was my companion - he loves to walk. Today I expected him to be at a trot or all over the path, but he stayed right with me and only ventured into one puddle which I'm sure was chilly!
