A Good Day, But Raining Cats and Dogs

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Yeah! Grandma, I hope you got a 100%. Easy tests are the best.

In spite of the evening rain, it sounds like a good day.  I picture Grandma listening to the rain drops hit the window as she drifted  peacefully off to sleep.

  1. It was raining cats and dogs here last night too. I love going to sleep to the sound of rain on the roof. Nice to know your Grandma may have been drifting off the same way 100 years ago. :)

  2. Oh what fun to discover your blog! A popular listserve for a town near me posted a girl’s diary entries for a while and it was one of my favorite things to read. It’s raining hard here too tonight
