The house is open and we're all taking a deep breath. It's been raining most of the day and the high was somewhere in the low 60s. I've so loved having the windows open! And everything and everybody is welcoming rain and cooler temperatures. We had the hottest July on record - I suppose if we have to be that miserable, we might as well get into the record books for it.
We did have storms last night. I tried to come back here and let you know that yes, the storms continued, and yes, I did give the dog Benadryl. But I couldn't because the storm knocked out the internet until after 3:00 this afternoon.
I stayed at home today with the strep. My throat has felt better and better as the day has gone on. I started aching a bit when the sun went down, but that's to be expected. With no internet, therefore no Netflix, I ended up watching a Longmire marathon on TV. I don't usually watch it because it's on a bit late, but I do like it. And I got one cap for the Cancer Center finished and another started. So it's been a good day.
I'm off to bed soon, so I need to say goodnight. I don't think we're expecting storms tonight, so the dog and I should sleep well in the cool night air. I'd sleep better, though, if I was cuddling up with you instead of Jethro. He's a sweetheart of a dog, but he's just not you. I can hear you now - you're relieved to know that I'd rather cuddle up with my husband than my dog. You weren't really in doubt, were you? After all, you're the one I'll be cuddling up with whevener Jen lets me dig in the cemetery! I can't wait to feel your arms around me again.
Love you forever,
