Ode to a Rainy Day

It's been raining steadily since Betty and Cocoa woke up all lost in blanket caves (Bimbo is in Albany taking care of workforce development/green jobs business). So the girls of the house are really enjoying their day in -- and Betty's first day back from the Dominican Republic.

For Betty, this trip was amazing and different in so many different ways, and she feels changed by the things she saw, heard, and felt over the last five days.

A rainy day is a perfect time to process thoughts and images while working along on school work, feeling happy and protected and relaxed and focused and so grateful.

Cocoa has not enjoyed the two walks Betty tried to lead her on. When Cocoa doesn't like to walk, she protests by standing still as her little hood flops down over her eyes, leaving just her snout exposed. So Betty ends up carrying her around in the rain.

What is it about rainy days that can bring out the happiest --and the best?-- in us?

OK, good. It's good to know that Co's better-behaved older brother knows how to put up a little protest, too. : )

Would love to see you soon!
