Raindrops Keep Falling.....

We need you to....
like the rest of the nation we have not had rain
in so long.  Our grass is brown, our trees are drooping,
so when I heard it start, ever so softly about
2:00 a.m.
I smiled....

 I laid there awake planning my quiet morning
enjoying my new magazine that arrived in the 
mail yesterday with a cup of coffee on my porch.

I had to turn on the light....

 I sat so I could watch the rain drop on the steps.
Funny when you take such pleasure in 
the simplest things!

 This is what we have to look forward to.

 My daughter and her friends don't mind.
If you can believe it they are tired of
Yep, the only way to get cool, has been in the pool.
You can only swim so much....
Thank you rain!

Yep, the perfect spot to 
take a few quiet Cool moments
to myself!

Are you getting the weather you want today?
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful magazine cover. We need the rain so badly too. We are dried up in KY, same as you. A nice steady 2-3 day rain across this country would be a beautiful thing.

  2. Hi im a new follower love your home. You know i have to say im ready for fall its been so hot rain coming this afternoon! Have a great day!

  3. We had such a dry hot summer last year... I know what you're feeling. We have an above ground pool and it wasn't even refreshing some days!
    This year, has been better. It feels like a normal summer for us. We have hot days in the upper 90's and cool breezes coming across the field, we've even enjoyed swimming and had intermittent showers! Last week we had rain 4 days in a row.

    It is a simple pleasure for sure. But a much cherished one!
    Hoping you get some relief, Pat

  4. So glad you got the much needed rain. I know Michigan has been having unusually hot weather this summer. My husband keeps up with the Tigers games on the internet and was telling me that it was 100 degrees when the game started the other night. Ugh!
    That magazine cover looks very enticing. All this heat and humidity has me yearning for fall.

  5. We had rain overnight and one day here...enough to flood the basement again. The ground is already so saturated. I'm not eager for too much more at this point, though it was nice not to think about watering for a bit. A rainy day can be enjoyed when they are not an every day event.

  6. Oh joy! We need rain too!!! So crackly and brown here....98 today and more hot weather to come! Enjoy the rain!

  7. That looks like a great magazine. Take your temps and add 10 degrees each day, and that's our weather here.

  8. Well theres nothing like a good cup of coffee on the porch ! its very hot here in NC but we are getting alot of rain so thats good for my yard and gardens . Take care

  9. We just got a late afternoon rain today. I'm so thankful for a night off of watering my plants! :) It is so hot here too! Your temps actually look good compared to ours. We've been in the 100's. Not fun!!


I would enjoy hearing from you!
