Summer Rain



It's raining steadily this morning. My skin is a little annoyed to have long sleeves and capris on, after so many days of bare arms and shorts. A day like this, after so many sunny ones, puts me in a funny mood. The windows are all open in the house, because it's warm. But, it's dark, so I had to turn the light on to have my latte and look at a magazine. Joe is always good about grabbing a magazine he thinks I'll enjoy, left by some traveller on one of the airplanes.... Anyway, my house is very quiet, as I already dropped Benny off at VBS, Amanda is still at symphony camp, Mel is sleeping in and Joe has gone to bed. I'm listening to the forgotten, metallic, dripping sound of the water trickling down the gutters and the softer, slower, drip, drip, drip coming off the patio umbrella and trees.....I feel drawn to go sit outside, but I know I would get all wet........

What a gorgeous setting! I would have been tempted to go outside as well, regardless of the weather. Hope you are able to enjoy your beautiful surroundings today!

That's my backyard! Thanks! We've worked really hard on it. It used to be this hideous slope, and over the years we have been able to transform it into something enjoyable. I should post some before and after pics sometime...

Hello! I came over here via Lisa and Melynie.
We're in the process of doing our yard now and I would LOVE before and after pictures of your backyard!
I really enjoy reading your blog-- you are a great writer with a ton of very worthwhile things to share. I appreciate your willingness to be open and share so much of God's Word.
God Bless you today!

I appreciate your encouraging words, and I totally like your choice in friends! :) I'll try to post some yard pics. I think some of them are before we bought a digital camera, so I will have to scan them....Anyway, thanks again for the very nice comment!
