It’s been raining now for a few hours.  Lots of rain. Super humid and everything’s damp.  The pot garden LOVES it though, and we like it because we won’t have to water the pot garden anytime soon.

What’s amazing is how people are still out and about in the city, even in the downpour.  We drove our friend Sammy to her home in Allston after a nice pizza and ice cream evening here in Belmont, and Allston was buzzing!  The rain was coming down so heavy that I could barely see driving and yet traffic was insane.  People all over, walking around and going to the bars.  For me, the rain is a good excuse to stay in and have a pizza and ice cream evening.  Which is exactly what we did.

Sammy–our good friend from Williamstown who now lives in Bean Town–and Annie, Mark’s sister (who recently got engaged–congrats to Annie and Shehzaad!) came over to hang out and eat pizza and ice cream with us.  Even Gordo got some pizza and ice cream.  We had two kinds of pizza–homemade (or partially homemade, we bought the dough at the Shaws)–plain cheese and garlic/broccoli/artichoke.  It. Was. Awesome.  And ice cream–Turkey Hill Peanut Butter Swirl and… wait for it… JR. MINT.  Yes, I did say Jr. Mint.   Little mini Jr. Mints, mint ice cream, and chocolate sauce swirled together in a fabulously minty and fresh mouthful of yumminess. Also, It. Was. Awesome.

Gordon got to eat the pizza bones and a Frosty Paws doggie ice cream treat, which is really just a frozen cup of peanut butter flavored doggie treat dough.  A little gross, but dogs go nuts for them and ours is no exception.  What a lucky Gordon.

What a fun night.

Yep, it’s still raining.
