Rainy Day in Valbona: 16 June

There is no escaping the rain. It has settled in. It is photogenic in its own right:


We have spent the day reading, so there’s not much to report except

Catherine got a kitten today. Last time we were here, she said she was getting one, but didn’t know when. As we were talking about it this morning, the boy brought her in. The kittens were in the top of a barn and hard to catch, except for this one lying quietly with her mother. Catherine says her name is Carolyn.


She shivered at first with fear, but never fought or cried. Pretty soon, she drank some milk and settled into her box. When we visited her after her nap, she turned her belly up for some loving and purred, and she has advanced to playing with string. She is going to be fine.

Tomorrow also has rain forecast. So far, Wednesday is looking good.

  1. Carolyn is a perfect name for the kitten and a cute kitten it is. 🙂
