Back to Normal..... has begun to rain 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.

I love that 'adagio of rain'. Very beautiful imagery. I, too, love to fall asleep to the sound of rain as long as it's not an all-out thunder & lightning storm, in which case I find myself staying up wide-eyed.

Sorry, my English is not so good. I wanna ask what's the meaning of "adagio of rain", Ellen?
I wonder you were an English teacher years ago, or maybe something in literature..because I found the beauty in your each sentence at almost all your post :)
The rainpicture is so perfect to describe your words..
