Spring Rain

Last night I had the lovely and wonderful experience of going to sleep listening to the sound of the rain. Can I just tell you that is one of my favorite sounds, and smells, in the whole world?! I find it so relaxing. Rain just seems to cleanse as it falls. It also freshens the air, and especially at this time of year, you know about the new growth it's helping foster. Since I sure do love flowers and green trees, I know the rain is essential. It also doesn't hurt the desert environment in which I live.

The only problem is the timing of the rain. Unfortunately, it has the capacity to mess up plans you've made, particularly those that involve being outside. Tomorrow's Memorial Day activity with a group of friends involves a significant chunk of outside time, so it'll be a bummer if the rain continues. I'm hoping for the best, but I guess we'll have to see. Speak and I were trying to come up with some alternate activities just in case our activity gets rained out, but pretty much we got nothin'.

Here's to hoping the clouds go away long enough tomorrow for us to enjoy a lovely outside activity. If not, it's back to the drawing board to see what we can figure out.

I know what you mean. I LOVE how green it smells after the rain and that felling of life. So amazing.

But it's supposed to rain here tomorrow, as well, and we have plans to go to Arlington Cemetery for the placing of the flags. It won't be all that much fun i it rains the entire time.
