pitter-patter, pitter-patter

when i was little, one of my favorite poems was about the rain, that "falls on umbrellas here, and on the ships at sea." i have to confess that i really don't mind rainy days.

i like the sound of falling rain. there's lot of things you can't do in the rain, and so - whether or not this is actually true - to me a rainy day always feels like there's less i HAVE to do.

if only that were true today.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

sound of rain on a tin roof
always one that can lull me to sleep

I could sit and listen to the rain falling for hours on end. Music to my ears!

Even after the soggy the spring that we had, I welcome the soft rain of today. It is cool enough to justify turning on the oven ... and baking a cake!
