Rainy Days and Tuesdays

IMG 7744


Yesterday it rained. Unlike the song rainy days and Mondays always get me down, it was really quite welcome. Besides that, it was Tuesday. At least you don't have to shovel rain and it's a step in the right direction towards spring. 

The dogs tried to persuade me to take them somewhere but for once I didn't give in to them. I just stayed dry inside and started my knitting project of Rick's felted slippers. His old ones have sprouted a hole in the toe. 

At times the rain poured from the sky, drumming on the skylights above me in the sun room. It seemed to come in waves. Whenever it started raining hard all of a sudden, eBay would lift her head up from her spot by the fire and look up as if to say what is that noise??  Once they resigned themselves from not getting to "go for a ride"  the dogs just laid around and didn't even ask to be let outside in the yard.

By late afternoon the rain had stopped and the sun came out for a short while. I loved how the raindrops reflected the sun's rays.

The rain washed most of the snow away except for a few small patches where it had been plowed or shoveled. Things are definitely looking brighter!

Great rain shots ~ Same weather here yesterday ~ but rained late ~ Ready for Spring! ^_^

The rain didn’t start here until around 5:00 pm and really poured at times during the evening, but it was pretty much done by the time I went to bed.

I love your photos .. they are so amazing with mystery in them. Lovely sceneries. Thanks for sharing

These photos are so wonderful! I love how you were able to capture the reflection of the sun in the raindrops. Really beautiful images!

Visiting from the Rurality Blog Hop.

It poured here yesterday and we had nothing but MUD!  With horses that tends to happen!

Love your peaceful rain shots.  Really pretty and magical, as they take you away some where.  Rainy days are loved…

Carol, thanks so much! Thanks also for stopping—or should I say “hopping”-by!

C, it rained all day long here.

Tammy, thank you! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I’ll return the visit!

Tracey, mud is an unhappy circumstance of rain. With my dogs I get mud too. At least your horses don’t track mud into your house! smile Thanks for stopping by in the blog hop!

Michal, thank you, glad you liked them. Thanks for stopping by!

oops, Mariane, I missed you somehow! I guess I’m not used to so many comments! Thank you, glad you liked them! Thanks so much for stopping by!

You captured the essence of winter receding and spring on her heels.  I especially love the raindrops on the branches.  Beautiful!  I’ve been trying to capture raindrops lately, but I haven’t had any success.  Your photos are terrific!
Oh…and spring is coming in 7 days…I think.

Diane, thank you so much. I love your words in this comment. Thanks for stopping by. Yes, the calendar says spring in 7 days but I don’t think our actual weather is quite in agreement!

Yay! Seasonal progress!

LOVE the raindrops on the branches, so delightful!  Thank you for joining in ‘Rurality Blog Hop #6’ Hope to see you next Wednesday for #7…

Steve, well, some anyway. It was spitting snow this a.m. :(

Madge, thanks glad you liked the pics. I’ll be back next week!

Beautiful pictures! Such a great perspective on rain - elegant, simple, and gorgeous!  What a great way to show God’s glory.
