Rain!

We got some much needed rain today. It was the kind of gray day to stay inside and get some things done, which I did. I organized the desk, did some paperwork, gave Otis and Riley a bath, and did three loads of laundry. I also went outside and took some photos.

Puddles on the picnic table.


Overflowing bird bath. The birds were really chirpy today, more than usual, and the hummers were flitting around the feeder all day.

My dry and wilted flowers have once again perked up!

Everything is lush and green again.


This is Lil Miss Priss in the rain. She is one of my drawings from several years ago.

I wanted to go out and play in that rain. Instead I watched from my office window. It kept me smiling all day.
