Waking up to rain.
What a treat in the hot sunnny desert.
Rain day, feels like a holiday.
Drizzling all day makes us so happy!
If you can bear it...
And, you won't mind socializing with me...
You might be seeing more of me here, rather than less.
There is a measure of sanity in taking photographs and chattering nonsensically it seems.
For me at least.
I stood on the back porch, moist cool air.
Morning rain, not afternoon monsoon rain.
Very very interesting.
Droplets like gems, growing things so grateful.
Dancing cheek to cheek...
And collecting even more.
I think next year I will switch back to a proper pumpkin patch.
As the pumpkin explosion in my random seed planting this year has been insane, but oh so amusing.
We stand on the porch, plink plink plop...
A vintage scale sits there, I use it as a pot stand.
The cistern overflows twice.
Quickly everything that was brown turns green.
Are those pipes in the tree?
Why yes indeedy, Mister Lovee had to put them up there, as Matty (brown dog) was dragging them all over the place, obsessed with critters hiding inside and cutting up his face on the edges. Nothing like seeing a little dog dragging a big huge heavy pipe down the driveway whilst attempting to bark inside. Multitasking galore.
We got soaked.
Dark morning has lingered.
It was wonderful.
Rain fluffed hair has a chance encounter with the 1980's (early 90's) treasure drawer.
When no earring was too jeweled or too big.
(nevermind the photo taking frown face)
I'll pull some others out, you will fall over they are so funny.
Is it wrong that, I am kinda liking them again???
I might even wear them to the dollar store.
Might being the operative word.
Although, I saw Heidi Klum on t.v. and I dare say, giant blingy earrings are back?
Not that I really care what's in, but still, it's fun when old is new again.
The gnomes look on.
What must they think?
The boys try on their ghost Halloween costumes.
That, or they are just drying off.
Don't take our picture! Youuuuu!
Is there anything better than freshly crimped ear hair?
I love that wet crimped look Miley gets.
Rain and fur...
Looks like the bell needs some straightening out.
It was such a nice day.
If you wonder why it's so green, I live up in the hills/mountains at a higher elevation than Tucson.
That's why we get snow too.
Cooler air, and a tinge greener.
I have been learning lots of lessons.
You know, about this little thing called life.
Mister Lovee told me something amazing.
You know how when something stressful is happening, and you just feel like everything is wrong, and you are in pain and sadness and agony in your soul?
Well, Mister Lovee says...
"Pain is a part of life, suffering is self imposed."
He's talking about that emotional suffering that we put ourselves through.
Isn't that so true?
Of course, you have to feel emotions, and kick and scream and cry.
But, prolonging it is creating your own suffering.
And I am finding that suffering ain't for me.
It's so much worse to be sad and suffer, than to just fall backwards into faith.
The greatest lesson of the day.
Nothing is as we believe.
And better yet -
A proper perception change, lets you see under water.
Just like magic.
Thanks for being out there.
ps: I am working on packaging sweet orders, thanks ever soooo much ♥
pss: A dear friend sent me this this morning. You may have seen it already, but I love it.
