Rain

We have been receiving gentle rains for two days now. Tis a blessing and a relief. The fall planting of bulbs is now underway and the rains have softened our clay enough to let us dig.

I enjoy working in these gentle rains; wearing wellies and apron, it can be muddy. But then when a child I always played in the mud...some things do not change as we get older. Though mud pies have given way to apple pies, I still love the slosh and mess of the muddy hole. I know it as sign of life and growth.

That's me away.

Nothing better than being in dirt or mud! I love the feel of dirt and mud on my hands!

Thank God for the rain. We are finally getting some more. Too bad that it won't continue for at least a week.

I absolutely love thunderstorms! I love the way the rain smells, the sounds, the sights of lightining bouncing off things. It's so relaxing. I have some of those thunder sounding CD's that I enjoy listening too when I write my pen pals or I have had a bad day. Love 'em! :)

May God Bless the rest of your October!

Hugs,
Dawn
