Mr. Darcy seems to have quite the aversion to the rain....granted, he's only been in our lives since last Monday, but on the two biggest rainy days (today and Monday), he's busting out the pee in the house like there's no tomorrow! I'm thinking we have quite the fair-weather pup....

On another note, what do 'hairy coos', llamas, Jesus, nuns and the San Juan islands have in common? THIS: www.rockisland.com/~mhildegard/. And I'm excited to take a solitude retreat out there in a couple of weeks... And the sixth best thing about it (besides the five previously listed items?), I get to check off TWO on my '30 before 30' list! Go to the San Juan Islands...soon to be check... Stay at a convent or monastery...hey check-arana...

The whole idea reminds me of Kathleen Norris' The Cloister Walk; it's a poignant book about her off and on again experiences at a convent in the midwest....she's rather Anne Lamott and Annie Dillard-like, in the sense that she writes to a secular audience, but easily includes faith and spirituality in a non-threatening sort of way.

Okay, I'm delaying the homework inevitable and must go, but friends, make a list - it's soooooo healthy!
