Back to Normal.....
....it has begun to rain here...it has been so dry and lovely and so abnormally warm for this time of year and in this place.
The wind is picking up, the sound of the rain falling is deafening.
I am loving it now. When I go to bed, I will be pulled into sleep with the water lullaby.
The wood stove is going filling the house with warmth. It is what it should be here and now.
Tomorrow, I may curse the wetness and the leaves that the big dogs bring in after their breakfast, but for now I will give thanks for the comfort of a warm house, the sound of the precious water, clean sheets, a warm feather bed, gentle snoring of those big dogs and the gratefulness of a home that keeps me dry and safe while listening to the autumn adagio of the rain.
