Hallelujah!! It rained this afternoon and thundered and all sorts of lightning! It was a humdinger of a good rain. We only got .6", but it was all sorts of lovely! I'm sure it was because my husband accidentally shifted the rain stick the other day. We purchased it from an American Indian in New Mexico...or Colorado...or maybe Arizona...I can't remember, but it is a goodun! I'm sure it was not from the Navajo Indian woman at Canyon De Chelly. As I was walking back to our car there she was behind a very small shrub. I bought some juniper berry necklaces from her, because her ability to be unseen was mind blowing. I would not have made a very good pioneer at all. I'm sure she and her companion got a great laugh about the white woman on the rim of the canyon and how silly she was.
There is a chance for rain all week and I'm sooo happy about it. I'm worn out with this too long string of 100 degree + days we have had lately.
