A very good morning to you all on this bright and beautiful Monday morning!!!! 🙂
I am smiling very broadly today. Go on, ask me why. Oh, OK, I’ll tell you! We had rain last night!!! 😀 After many, many weeks of extremely hot, very dry weather, the heavens opened last night and it poured down. I cannot begin to explain my relief to you.
I think I mentioned it before, but I’m not a big fan of intense heat. I LOVE winter. We are in a summer rainfall region, so if we don’t get any rain, it just gets warmer, and warmer, and hotter, and hotter… The clouds have been building up for weeks now, and every afternoon we think: ‘It’s going to rain tonight! Look how the clouds are building up!” And then it doesn’t. But last night, it did! (Did I mention that before?)
And of course, when I got up this morning, I was in great spirits – full of energy and smiles. It was beautiful outside – there was a low mist hanging around the house, and it was fresh and wet. SO, what did I do? I grabbed my camera and rushed outside to take pictures! Yay!!!
Except they really didn’t come out as I had hoped. The camera somehow refused to see what I was seeing, and all in all my endeavours were a bit of a disappointment to me. I tried to take a few to show you how beautiful the mist was in the garden, the raindrops on leaves and berries and spiderwebs… I just could not get it! 😦
Anyway, I enjoyed it, and here are a few of the passable shots – maybe you’ll get the idea! 🙂
Now, I have to go and do paperwork… I have to get everything together to take to my bookkeeper, so I can finalize 2 year’s worth of ‘stuff’… 😦
Until we chat again, heads up!!!! 😀
