Abscondita is a day scholar, and usually leaves when I get home. I rushed home today to avoid being caught up in the rain and released her. I unfortunately assumed she had shut the door leading outside behind her, and she unfortunately assumed I would shut it. It has been raining for over forty minutes now and i have just realised the veranda is wet, really wet. The direction of the rain and strong winds are not helping as the seat cushions in the veranda are wet too. Sigh.
