I felt like I needed flippers and fins yesterday. It rained hard all night Tuesday, and then it rained even harder all day yesterday. By the time I headed home from work, there was so much standing water in the streets that I was concerned about stalls and hydroplaning. Luckily, nothing happened. There were also flood and high wind warnings out last night. It was truly nasty out. I apologized profusely to the dog for having to take the poor little thing out to go potty in such a monsoon -- and didn't complain once about the aroma of eau de wet dog.
My Christmas trees (two wee ones) are up, lighted, and have presents under them. I still plan to pester Santa for that one thing I really want, though. And then I think I'll start handing out Princess Serena's address and see who sends me tribute. I'm interested in all things sparkly, shiny, and glittery, just so you know.
