plop plop plop




It's raining!!!!
I am happy!!!
I went to sleep last night
listening to the first few drops
falling on the skylight
above our bed.
I woke up this morning to the same
sound
but a little heavier.
I did a lot of watering yesterday
and I am glad I did.
The ground will soak up the rain now,
instead of it running off the
dry, cracked
earth.
We haven't had any rain for quite awhile
now.
I hesitate to say I'm happy it's raining
because of all the destructive
flooding just West of us.
Nature is cruel sometimes
and
there isn't much we can do
when it turns against us
and causes so much
grief.
Man is also
cruel
as witnessed
in the
Gulf of Mexico.
I could go off on that subject
but
I
won't.
It speaks for itself
and we don't need another
opinion
added to the peanut gallery.
So,
it's the beginning
of yet
another week
and are
 we glad for it?
I hope so.
:)

Any guesses as to what this picture is? First I thought it was a plant, but maybe it's the back of a wicker chair? With raindrops ... Any more guesses?

I've just seen the quote you've added to your blog by Henry David Thoreau, it says everything in one line that I was trying to say on my blog, but just rambled instead :)
