It's been ...

   raining on and off for days here in Not So Sunny South Florida! The rain is welcome ...  last year was exceptionally dry and it has had enormous effect on everything here. Dried up lakes, forest fires, unnatural eating patterns for our wildlife. I say let it rain, we need it!


   I've used the rain day as an opportunity to stay home, play a little with watercolors and to do a some catching up on what's new in some of my favorite journals.

     Now that everyone is all spread out, it's not as easy as it once was but today I had plenty of time on my hands and here is what I found ...

     Kat <- celebrates Yom Kippour, has lunch and a show with Nancy and transplants some of her favorite flowers in her new garden in NY. BTW ... she has a dog.

     Suzy <- is re crowned as the dog food goddess while she confuses the cable guy that tells her she has an intermittent signal.

    Mort <- mentions that work has been a little slow, he is missing the Missed America Pageant again this year, and laughs when the Iranian Prez says there are no homosexuals in Iran like we have here in America.

     Connie <- sips coffee on the front porch swing as she mentions the smell of fall in the air and reminds us that the leaves will be changing color soon.

     The Blog Father <- makes it to Chicago, links us to some award winning science photos and mentions the story of the black bear found clinging for his life on the Rainbow Bridge.

     Sam <- seems to be taking a break. The busy Dock Master loses his summer staff this time of year and still faces the final dog days of summer. I'm sure we all agree that he deserves to put his feet up and relax for a while, we'll look forward to reading new tales from the docks when it's time.

    Steven <- shares a new Cosmo shot and a really nice one of Pickle as well.

     Alpha Woman <- reminisces about the good old days here in J-Land and reminds us of some old friends we really miss.

    Albert <- continues to sprinkle his Glinka dust around, today I found him painting a larger than life St Francis.

   Robbie <- has been a little quiet these days, must be busy like me.

     Trish <- is continuing her journey to peace. Right now she seems to be focusing on a budget and business plan for her new CD.

     GiGi <- gives a high tech tutorial called "Geek Like Me"

     Paul <- visits Rockport and gives us an up close  glimpse at one of the most photographed and painted buildings in the country.

     Judi <- is still accepting entries for this months Artsy Essay.

     Astaryth <- posted the cutest photo of Morgan when she was just a few weeks old, awwwww ...

     And me ... I just enjoyed having a little time to play catch up.

Wow, you have really been around! I like your water color very much :-)

You need to use Bloglines, my dear. You just plug in the URLs of all the blogs you read and you can read them all in one spot. It tells you when people post new entries too. It's a good thing. ;-)

There I was, just about to sign out of my Bloglines when something odd caught my eye ~ why, was that a new post next to 'Dancing in the Rain'?  It was!  And with a wonderful new watercolor that, upon closer inspection, even had my name on it, along with those of a few old friends. Thank you for that!  Rainy days and Mondays always make ME smile.

It's nice to see you back, Coy.  For however long or often you choose.  :)

Wow!  Wonderful to hear from you.  Seems you're all caught up.  I've been feeling nostalgic lately - really missing the old crowd.  It's just not the same.  But always feels good to reconnect.  Lots of love to you!
