Here, as I write this, it is raining steadily. Our sky is a blanket of heavy, grey cloud that has obscured the view of the horizon to the East. I don't think there will be a chance of rainbows today! The air is damp and cold and I am wearing the Winter woollies I have resisted packing away so far this Spring. Soon, I will make a warm drink for my hands to hold but I'm reluctant to move lest I wake the snoozing Sir Steve dog at my feet. Should he stir, the day will officially begin and I am content with the quiet just now.
Arum Lily blooms.
(A gift from my Mother-in-Law.)
One creamy cotton washcloth.
(I really need to block it & weave in the ends.)
Tiny & sweet Alyssum.
(The honeybees and native bees both 💛 it.)
Our beautiful elderly statesman.
(Such a gentle soul.)
A single, white Ranunculus bloom.
(Catching the light of a sunnier day.)
Loving // The warmth of creamier whites.
Eating // Warm and nourishing meals like this delicious version of Shepherd's Pie.
Drinking // Lime cordial, in defiance of the weather, and just because I love its zing.
Feeling // Like the year, and the last of my son's primary school days, are passing by so
Making // Less than I would like to be ... but I am adding to my pile of cotton washcloths!
Hoping // ... that our farmers, battling the drought, have had some of this
Dreaming // Of Straddie island days which, at last count, are only 49 sleeps away!
Our wet weekend days will be spent cocooned, warm and dry, at home. The furthest we might go is to the little creek, down the hill and round the corner, just to see how fast its flowing and to jump a few puddles along the way. Otherwise, we'll be watching the rain fall beyond the window panes and listening to its music on our roof.
Sarah over at Say, Little Hen, hosts this monthly link-up. I'm not sure if it's raining in her part of the world this morning but you can visit her there for a peek at her gorgeous photos and for links to others joining in to share snapshots of their own days.
Have a lovely weekend, no matter the weather!
