Today, based on a weather forecast of no rain and light winds, we had planned a long canoe expedition, but in reality (not in the alternative dimension that is weather-forecast-land) it has rained pretty much continuously since 8am, and shows no sign of letting up. I'm guessing this is the rain that was forecast for yesterday, then, given that yesterday's forecast was for rain which failed to show.
I and the dogs all got very wet on the morning dogwalk, and getting wet again in a canoe seems an uninviting prospect, even though it would give me a chance to test the bailer that I cunningly made from an old paraffin jug. Tomorrow, perhaps.
Since we dutifully cleaned all the things yesterday when we could have been canoeing, today looks like a day of writing and drawing all the things instead. Hey ho!
