I woke up to the sounds of distant rumbling thunder. I could hear the raindrops ping as they fell onto our neighbor's patio cover. For the first time in a long while, I was not dragging myself sleepily out of bed. I threw off the sheets and busied myself opening each and every window. The smell of crisp air filled with the savory smell of water filled the house, it's such a different feeling than the air conditioning- the artificial cold. Oh, beautiful rain- it is my favorite thing in the world. They should make a candle that smells just like this- I would buy that!
I made banana pancakes
before waking up the kiddos. We ate warm pancakes as we sat and watched the rain dance along our patio. The kitties came by, (as per their usual morning routine) and batted at the exceptionally long blades of grass. (we're anti-grass mowing over here)
The girls were in their summer pajamas, cupcake flip flops, and their raincoats.
I'm convinced there is no better way to start the day.
My thermostat says it is 73 in my house. Seventy three! I may just burst from sheer delight. Hope your day is just as lovely.
