How to Make Those Rainy Days Go Away
This is a favorite video of mine. I'm so lucky to be his Nana.
Now that I am away from those icy, windy, snowy, below-zero temperatures (did I say windy) of Wyoming, I just have to learn to embrace the Oregon rain. The only time it bothers me is when I'm trying to head out for a run. This is the perfect running trail according to the dogs
:Now, THIS, is what I call perfect:
But one thing we do agree on -- the naps afterward are wonderful
One of my favorite places to watch the ocean.

Only 11 laps per mile.
But sights like this (yes, those are cowboy boots) make the running more enjoyable.

When you know how to be cool and you're only two.
Some of these just crack me up. And sometimes you have those days when you need them.
A little more serious
One day at a time,
