I'm Only Happy When It Rains.

That's actually not true, but what a great song, eh? I woke up to one of my favourite sounds this morning, the tap tap tap of raindrops falling on my window. The bedroom was dark because it is overcast, and I thought "it would be a perfect morning if I could just lay here and enjoy this". Cameron looked at me and smiled, not entirely agreeing with my sentiment as she initiated her favourite game of "soo-soo dive bomb", pelting me with her pacifier and then jumping on top of me to make her point. Sunday is Scott's day to sleep in, so Cameron and left him to rest and headed downstairs.

I find the sound of the wind and the rain very soothing. I especially like it if I don't have to go out in it, if I can just stay inside, drink tea, and enjoy. It is nature's percussion, throwing me an impromptu concert. Now that Cameron is having her morning nap, I'm going to head back to bed with my tea and a book. While I'm not only happy when it rains, I am very happy when it rains.

  1. I am with you!
    Living in the Pacific NW, we get puh-lenty of rain and I do get irritated with it when I have to go inside/outside frequently, but on a lazy Sunday where I have nothing else to do--I love to have it rain all day and I'll just sit under a warm blanket with a cat and read a book all day. Love it.

    I also love your new header! Super-cute.
