A walk in the rainPosted: February 16, 2012
A rainy day is the perfect time for a walk in the woods.
~ Rachel Carson
It’s a lovely, rainy day here in the Bogs. I know most people don’t think of rainy days as lovely, but I do. The raindrops are strung like tiny jewels on the pine trees. The air smells like spring. The birds seem to like rainy days too. They’re singing and chattering, taking turns bathing in the bird bath or in the puddles. The warm temperature might have something to do with their cheerfulness as well.
The snow cover has thinned and there’s more earth than snow showing now. It is, as usual, boggy. Boots are advised. An umbrella is helpful if you don’t want to get a good soaking while you’re out there.
A rainy day is also a good day to work on some of the chores that I’ve put aside for, well, a rainy day. Organizing, decluttering, and finding ways to lighten up around here.
All in all, this has been a wonderful rainy day. I hope you’ve enjoyed the day too, whatever the weather. 🙂
P.S. Another good thing to do on a rainy day is visit blog neighbors, listen to music, and be inspired. Head on over to Marianne’s to see a great video. Or maybe you want to see and be inspired by a beautiful home? Stop by Kathy’s.
