a shower...

I waited for Thomas to come home from work, and he's home now.  I wasn't sure if I could do it because of the rain and wind thrashing about earlier, but the sky cleared, save for a few patches of wispy clouds.  And I watched a meteor shower, the annual one that starts with a "p", I think.  It was cool to see the streaks go by here and there, but better than that, the sky was just twinkling all over the place.  I think I saw more of a meteor sprinkle, but then I was only outside for about twenty minutes.

Tom's parents gave us some chairs they picked up for the New Mexico reception, and it was just brilliant sitting out all wrapped up watching the stars twinkle and the meteors streak by.

I could hear Thomas coming long before I could see the lights, and I could see the lights long before he was home.  When he finally rumbled up to a stop, he asked what I was doing.  I told him I locked myself out, and he worried asked how long I had been sitting outside.  I laughed and told him what I was really up to.  It would be quite silly to get locked out in a muumuu and sweatshirt with a flashlight....

Good to know about this shower. I too attended my best friend’s baby shower at one of San Francisco venues. Her sister and mom hosted that and they did fabulous arrangements that I really loved. Enjoyed the day a lot.
