Enough Already!

I just watched our weather station record our rainfall since midnight to be 2.00 inches! As I type it’s only 7:50 a.m. Wow. The rain is coming down in a solid sheet. I heard it before I got up and thought that it might be the wind in the trees because the noise was so constant. Nope; it was rain. I asked for this, I wanted it to rain. I’m a rainy day lover, which of course we had about once or twice per year back in Colorado. But I’m starting to think, okay, enough is enough already! We had a few patches yesterday when it wasn’t raining and even managed to go for a swim last night. We noticed that we’re going to have to let water out of the pool because the water level is too high for the automatic skimmers to work properly. Good grief!

Seems like a good day to get my painting project started, or read a good book. I’ll just say my Enya mantra throughout the day and then I’ll feel better about it: let the rain fall down / everywhere around you / give into it now / let the day surround you.

To brighten the day, here is a photo of my day lilies in full bloom poolside that I took yesterday. Note the profusion of ferns!! Oh, and by the way, we’re up to 2.13 inches [of rain] at 8:27 a.m.
