A sweet rescue
We went over to the mainland for Easter and enjoyed dinner on Sunday with my family - there were 21 of us together. Lots of laughter, lots of food, lots of conversation. We came home yesterday and I'm back studying.
Yesterday afternoon I was in need of a walk after being in the car and on the ferry so I grabbed a couple of cloth shopping bags and headed over to the market, about a 20-minute walk away. Just a few minutes into the walk I noticed a black cloud above me, then a few fat drops of rain, then a few scattered hail stones. I walked faster, looking up at the sky and estimating it was very localized and would soon blow over. I made it into the store just fine but when I exited, shopping bags full, it was pouring rain.
I had left my phone at home and couldn't call my husband, and for a split second wondered what to do....then I saw him drive by. He had come to rescue me! Yay!
