Well just when I was starting to miss a rainy day, one came along to remind me of home.
There were times today when if I had needed to leave my office, I'd have regretted keeping my umbrella in my car, as it was chucking it down. Yup for all you Okies reading this, old habits die-hard and I still have an umbrella in my car at all times - I can hear you laughing!
This is actually our second drizzly day and it looks like we might get another tomorrow, a rarity indeed in mid-August in Okieland! When I lived in rainy England I got sick of days just like this and like most Brit's spent alot of my life bemoaning our weather. Now I love it when we get a dull rainy day, although so far I have braved them all sans umbrella and the 3 I brought with me (yes I know that's overkill!) are gathering dust.
The cats aren't big fans of this weather; Sukie is happy to be outside in it, Cal-Jo is a total wuss and hates the wet and baby is still not allowed out. So as you can see the two of them are enjoying the view from indoors, and hasn't Bonnie Blue grown?!
The best part is no watering the garden for a couple of days and all my plants will flourish again. Living here makes me appreciate why England looks so lush compared to other places in the summer!
So you will probably never hear me complain about the rain on the plains, to me it's a fond reminder of home and a welcome relief.
