i woke at 2:14am which in my world isn't very early, it's ridiculously early. but there's a sweet silver lining in this wakeful time. rain.
rain in drought ridden northern california. praise be!
i lay quietly listening to the pitter*pat then drenching wetness hitting our roof, trees, and the ground beneath. the cadence of the drops and gentle lullaby of heaven's happy tears helped drift me back to sleep.
almost early (4am) arrived and i woke in earnest. 'course, my husband's dog had something to do with that as well. with liquid life in mug, i padded to the guest room which was once 'her' room and settled in with my husband's dog. she slept. i sat sipping a slow savor of dark blend.
the rain continues, making the earth once again sodden. i come alive in weather like this. God even saw fit to bless me .. right now .. with my favorite temperature of 56 degrees. how thoughtful. the weather forecast claims rain for the remainder of the day along with thunder.. guess i'll be putting evelyn's *thunder shirt* on her soon, for her anxiety requires it, poor dear. lots of pats and cuddles are planned.
and i dare say, tea and cookies
A&E's sense and sensibility
and this..? i take as a promise.....
