After the Summer Rain

The sun has come out, chasing away the gray clouds and pouring rain.  People have come out of their homes to walk and laugh in the sunshine.  Children are playing in the puddles, shouting with glee!  I look out my window and see one beautiful raindrop, perserved somehow on a perfect green leaf, sparkling in the sunlight.  It's truly a wonder what nature can produce.  So perfectly displayed, that raindrop is mirroring the whole world today - 

 

But wait, there's another single raindrop on another perfect leaf.  And there's a muddy dog pooping on my lawn.  Oh well.

      The lady from the library didn’t call, so I called her, and I’m in! I just ordered a bunch of books and a tablecloth and some book holders – I’m just about set!!

          It isn’t until the middle of September. It will be on a Friday afternoon from 2 until 7, and there’s some sort of big Chamber of Commerce thing on the lower floor (It’s all inside the library, which is quite large and has a lot of big meeting rooms.) so that will bring in more people. I’m guardedly optimistic .

            I just wondered if it was somewhere in IN or KY. That maybe Darlene and me could come. I guess by then she will be working.

              It’s in Indiana – in our library here in town. Has Darlene found a job?

              No, she’s trying to find one, but is really discouraged. One minute they are hiring and the next thing someone else is telling her they aren’t hiring. She just left to go talk to a store manager of a Family Dollar out near where we live. I hope she gets the job. He said he is always looking for dependable people. If she gets a job I don’t know if she can hold it down due to her Bipolar. I wish I could come to your thing in September, but Craig will be working nights as well as days and will need the car. It’s hard when you only have one car.

    It’s been a long time since I looked for a job, and it really is a discouraging business. I wish her luck.
