Anyway....the rain today tested the Kuroiwa family. Issei, when there was a bit of a break, jumped on his bike and was not seen again until about 5:00. He made it back just as it was starting to pour....again. The
K-Man, Koji and I, in need of some time out of the house, decided to enjoy a little retail therapy.
For the occasion, I wore one of my favorite shirts. For some reason, wearing this shirt just makes me feel a little lighter in spirit!! (I think it's the guys and the fish...yeah...that's it!)

Just because this makes me laugh whenever I see it:

"well....what does it look like?"
Oh! and don't forget...start with a pure heart. If the pasta doesn't turn out, then...well, I did my part! (^-^) )

....and we will be oh so very happy when he loses that damn surly card.
We are living with a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde of emotional angst. It's quite amazing to observe, actually....one minute, he will be smiling, laughing, messing around with Koji or me outside, but he takes one step inside the house and something almost evil-like takes over. The rest of us are trying to keep our senses of humors about us, but....it is trying.
That is why, when we have moments of sunshine--moments of fun and laughter, we really do appreciate them...and try to keep them in our short term memory so we can bring them out whenever we need them.
I'm the first person to wake up in the mornings. The other day, as with most days, I don't really focus on anything until I can smell the coffee brewing. I usually stand and watch...and listen...and smell the wonderful aroma coming from that wondrous machine. I wait. I usually think about the day's schedule, what I have to do...or I think about events of the previous night. That particular previous night had not been a pretty one. I was tired....the K-Man was tired...even Koji was not feeling his usual genki-happy self. Issei was the icing on the cake, coming in from club later than he normally does and was just pissed off personified.
The night did not go well. A good night's sleep had helped me to feel a little better about the whole evening. I was mentally preparing for the new day and trying not to dwell on the one before.
As I waited for the coffee to finish doing its thing, I turned around and saw this....on the table, at Issei's place:

Southeast Colorado has a lot of open space....that tornado wasn't very close to anything.
Thank the Good Lord for that.
I wish you all a safe and happy Thursday!
