A little fall of rain
Today’s post is going to be short because it’s finally raining here and I’m taking some time to enjoy watching the birds looking for something to eat in the freshly mown grass. They were doing that after it was mowed yesterday, but the rain has brought up a lot of treats for them. And I also just got back from my therapist’s office and still feel in a funk about everything that’s going on at the moment.
She suggested that I go back to school. “And do what?” I asked her. I have a bachelor’s degree and most of a master’s, but I can’t afford any more student loans. There aren’t many grants/scholarships for second bachelor’s (which I’d need to really do what I wanted). Plus, if I had the money to go back to school I’d have the money to open my own business and that sort of makes the whole conversation moot.
So for now I’m going to sit and watch the birds outside. It’s quiet and the rain isn’t falling hard, so it makes it cooler outside but not so unpleasant that you’re terrified of going out in it. Well, I’m not terrified of going out in it but you’d think the dogs — who will romp and roll in anything — believe it’s poisonous. They keep looking at me when I open the door for them to go “walkies” as if I’ve completely lost my mind.
They may be right. But they still have to do their business out there.
