Daily Life


Heavy rain put a dampener on any outside activity this morning, but it was a good chance for other activities, notably the family dinosaur throwing herself into a bath. She’s the clumsiest bather imaginable and watching her trying to bathe always fills my heart with warmth and hope that she’ll eventually get the practice down right one day. No luck so far, though.

Otherwise, it was a great day for the garden as the rain poured down in the morning and the sun is coming out now. It looks green, lush and healthy. How long it will remain like that is anyone’s guess.

For now, though, it’s off on a Death (Machine) ride. This ride will be my first with a new carry bag, the old one picked up over a decade ago for about 50 yen finally being put to pasture after the belt frayed beyond redemption.
