Raindrops keep fallin’
Yes, the raindrops keep falling on my head and everywhere else this week! And just when I thought we were catching a break (waking up to beautiful blue skies this morning), by the time I finished work; the clouds had rolled back in and the now I hear the sound of rain again outside my window.
But hope springs eternal that this weather pattern of the last two weeks is going to change, and EVENTUALLY we’ll get some extended periods of sun.
One of the positives was getting to try out my new “rain pants” that I ordered from Sierra Trading Post (fun shopping website with some good deals to be had). Took the short two-mile “shore path” walk in the rain and they worked out great. Now I have no excuses! And at least (with all this rain), the car is getting a regular washing.
Thursday, we had TORRENTIAL rain (again), which causes some flooding on my patio. Good thing I have another entrance. Even Bam Bam wasn’t interested in taking this on:
Once this rain stops, I’m looking forward to cleaning up the tree debris and getting some flowers for the patio! The large tree next door will provide some great shade for this area when the sun returns.
Tomorrow, it’s back to the trails, and with the predicted sunshine I expect to have pics of brighter skies and fairer scenery to share with you!

Washing away my troubles Quenching my sun baked soul
While others rush for cover I stroll among the empty streets
Looking up at the gray clouds I open my mouth to catch the rain
The soft pitter-patter on my window
Until next time rain
