We had friends over – about 9 or so. The kind you would trust with your life. We ate. We laughed. We told stories. Then we ate some more and we laughed some more. Then they decided they had to go home.
We had heard it was going to rain and we need it here. So, after the food and the fun and the friends, we went out on the porch in the darkness and waited for the rain to come.
The bugs and critters were calling to each other and the wind was beginning to pick up a bit. I think our record breaking heat streak may have ended – for now. They say the rain is coming.
We enjoyed listening to the sounds in the darkness for a while. It was a feet on the porch railing kind of night. The rain didn’t come while we were out there but I think I heard some thunder so maybe . . .
