It's raining.........yeh

Well I have just dragged myself out of bed it is the most beautiful day.........I was supposed to go to an open garden with a group of friends .......but due to the rain it has been cancelled so instead I have laid in bed and been reading a new novel I got while in the city.............1/4 of the way thru now but the best bit is I have been laying there listening to the rain fall on the roof..............we have had over an inch so far and more is forecast for later in the week........we have not had this much rain in one fall since the end of February and things were starting to look pretty desperate.........now what esle should I do now............maybe finish a bag I have been working on........catch you all later...........hope it is raining at your place...........

.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  1. I love the sound of rain on the roof and curling up in bed with a good book! Here in Minnesota we could also use rain but it's to be hot for the next two days and no rain possibility til Tuesday! Rain always puts me in a good mood. :-)

  7. Yes, it rained a little here too. (About 10mm) I love the sound of rain on the roof. I was woken up by that sound in the middle of the night. I am so glad that you got some rain. Hope you get more! (I love every little bit that we get!)

    Autumn is approaching very fast in norway, hope the snow stays away for a long time. Not ready for that yet.

  12. It hasn´t rained here the last few days, and I´m happy for that. The weather report says that tomorrow will be our last summerday this year... Then colder and more rain. I wish I could send some of that water down to you, I think you need it more... But when it rains I can stay inside stitching....:))

  13. I’m happy to say that for a change it’s not raining here today! We have sun and 30oC... tomorrow we will have rain again and the temperatures will drop... 18oC. Autumn is around the corner!

    I love to listen to the rain when laying in bed!

  16. Love the rain, as a great excuse to spend the day sewing, reading or just lazing around. We were lucky enough to have two days straight of no rain LOL even resorted to washing the windows to get rid of the winter grime... Have a great week, and enjoy the rest of your novel. Hugs Jx

  17. Beautiful, beautiful rain, especially on our crop at Narromine! It is the difference for us between losing a whole lot of money and perhaps making a little. I can't imagine what it means to the 'big farmers' like you! So glad for everyone that the season has taken a turn for the better. Enjoy the novel!
