Rain Rain and more Rain
I like the rain!
I love the sound of it. It's the most beautiful natural sound. It catches my breath.
It's calming - I can sit and listen for hours.
And the smell - it's something surreal.
It's hard to explain, but there's something special in it.
I like how voilent a thunderstorm can be. How it can start and stop so suddenly.
Rain makes puddles and rainbows.
Rain feeds the flowers and makes everything clean.
This morning I dind't have class, so after dropping off my husband to work, and my daughter at school, I headed to Chapters in search of a book on stretching (found a great one, but that's not the point). With my new personal challenge, I parked at the far end of the lot, so the lots closer to the building were open for the people who were rushing around and those with children, I mean it was raining but I was not in a hurry. I wandered around for about an hour, made my slection and headed to get checked out. When I left Chapters I held open the door for 3 people, and didn't get a second glance, they just bustled on in. Ok. Home I headed for home. I opened the car and inhaled the fresh scent of rain before hopping out, weaved around the puddles and bounded up the front step, I just put the keys in the door when the soaking wet mail man turned around the side of my house, he was dripping! So, without even thinking, I told him to stay where he was, it would only take a second, ran into my house and grabbed a rain poncho out of my camping supplies. He was a little hesitant at first, but he pulled it on over his head and mail bag and off he went! I knew there was a reason I bought 6 rain ponchos for my camp kit when there are only 3 members of my family, other than the fact they were on sale for $2 each.
I spent the rest of the morning in the back yard wrapped up under the awning watching the lightening and reading my new book. Yep it was a good start to my day.
On a seperate note, I got the mark from my anatomy OSCE tonight... ROCKED IT! 92%!
