It's been raining here most of the day. Flowers always look best in cloudy weather and I thought the honeysuckle was especially pretty against the grey porch.
Katie's birthday is next week. She has a couple of friends over to eat her daddy's cooking and spend the night. They're nice kids. Kids you can leave to their own devices without second thought. I was busy playing with some modeling clay when they came into the kitchen and said they were going out into the alley to slide in the mud. Harmless fun - they were wearing flip-flops which could be easily washed off and a few muddy feet never hurt anyone. I said "No problem. Have fun."
They had fun.
A lot of fun.
