The rains came in, again
It has been as dry as a old smoker’s throat around here. While the east is battling floods, here, we are performing dances to call on the rains, to no avail.
Until the other day.
It started slow and unpleasant, with just a short bit of rain that made the air heavy and warm like an uncomfortable blanket. But then, then things turned and guess where we were?
Rains, soaking into the thirsty soil and washing away the sticky sweat off our bodies, poured out of the sky.
It was a bit cold even, but not cold enough.
After it stopped and towels soaked up the extra moisture, I spread some dry materials on the front porch and Mr.Blab prepared little bowls of mango sorbet to be enjoyed by the wet haired monsters.
(I love this picture)
There is a rare pleasure in watching your children happy. Not just any happy, but raw and wild happy.
We were not the only ones enjoying the splash of fresh air and drips off our bodies. The garden, half dead, felt alive and happy too.
And this is what happens, when the rains come in.
Looks like you all had a great rain dance.
I am over in Brisbane so although only about one year ago we were all desperately trying any rain dance we could to bring on the rain and break the drought, now we are all wondering if we perhaps took it all a bit too far ;-0
Please continue to rain dance enthusiastically and often so we can shift some of this wet whether over to the other side of the country and even it up a little bit.
Im glad to see Im not the only one with nekid kids running around willy nilly!
Oh how good the Earth must feel to have a summer shower!
Love the fotos!
Happy, stay safe up there in QLD. We are doing our best to attract some of the rain clouds our way.
Zizi, the kids are nekid most of the time anyway ;)
So strange to hear you talking about how warm it is and seeing a summer rain while the bottom of my pants are still wet from the snow drifts I walked through on my way in the office this morning, haha!
Looks like they had tons of fun :)
I’ve been tagging along on your site for some time now – just wanted to say I love your pictures and your blabs.
Here it’s freezing and snow, so it’s so nice to feel the warmth from your pictures. My kids are over 20 now, but your pics really bring up some lovely, lovely memories.
Greetings from Norway!
KariAnne, welcome and thank you for the kind words.
I love Norway, hopefully I will get to see it again one day.
