The Rain

The rain is raining all around.
It falls on field and tree.
It rains on the umbrellas here
And on the ships at sea.
-Robert Louis Stevenson

This morning has been fun.  It's raining for real outside, not the half-baked kind we usually get.  We had to get up early this morning to take Chewie to the vet.  He is getting some masses removed, poor guy.  But Elliot looked cute in his raincoat, with his pajamas still on underneath, and his Lightning McQueen rain boots.  Then we came home and made a fire, and put on "The Muppet Movie", which is my fave of the muppet films.  It's the one about how they all meet up and go to Hollywood to follow their dreams.  I like the songs, and find them inspiring, sadly enough.  Plus I love Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, and how they play at an old church.  
Elliot was laying down by the fire getting cozy with is blanket over him, and was really cute. but of course started moving all around when I tried to take pictures.  Then I took a little video of us doing some super-high singing, which we have been doing lately.  We both think it's really funny. Sometimes we talk in super high voices, too.  I think this runs in the family, because my sister and I think it's really funny, too.

So, yesterday we went to San Luis, and bought some fruit trees!  I'm so excited because it's something I've been wanting to do ever since we bought the house.  We got a Fuji Apple tree, and another tree that has four different things:  Blenhiem Apricot, Elberta Peach, July Babcock Peach, and Fantasia Nectarine.  It's not magic, it just has different branches grafted on.  Anyway, the funny thing is that Elliot has been looking forward to getting the apple tree, except he somehow decided that it's an "apple pie tree", which will grow apples, and apple pies.  I don't know where he comes up with this stuff!  Since it is such a cozy-in-the-house day, I am contemplating making some apple pie just to fulfill his dream.  Does he even like apple pie?  We'll see...  maybe apple dumplings?

That cameo was Roscoe! Chewie is now home from the vet, very sad and looking like Frankenstien with stitches all over his head. Poor Chewer!
