Again we have rain

It has been an odd winter here in Mission, Texas. Cooler and more rain than in the past. We also had a couple of hard freezes. No matter, it's warmer here than most of the country.

Boo is back to normal, his bad self is constantly with us. LOL His food intake is good and everything is coming out when it should :)

Jim has been busy making a music stand. He's patiently waiting for his dulcimer kit to arrive. Scotty and Dave have theirs in various stages of construction. This damp weather has halted work on them. Something about tacky finishes.

The rain started before we went to bed last night. Just lightly and during the night I heard it a couple times. Apparently it rained quite a bit, we had puddles everywhere! Big ones too. The rain has come and gone all day.

After lunch Jim and I went to Barnes and Nobles, one of our favorite places when it's rainy! Didn't stay long but I enjoyed every minute I was there. We then headed to Tinseltown to see a movie. The Book of Eli was outstanding! It has a powerful message. Denzel Washington gets better with each movie he stars in.

Tried a new recipe for dinner tonight, Spicy Cioppino. We both liked it and Jim said it was a keeper. What I liked about it was the amount it made, perfect for two people.

We've been watching TV and playing games on our computers.
