drips...

IMG_6364-2IMG_6363-1IMG_6368-1 
it SO rarely rains here... SO rarely!
we actually get a bit excited to see those crystal clear drops fall from the sky!

what IS that?
when we lived in Houston... where it rains ALL the time... it was like...
oh... no don't go out there... as if we would MELT!
well now... come to think of it... the rain AND humidity in Houston...
you CAN melt from it!  :)  

on the western slope here in Colorado it is SO dry... 
chapped lips... dry brittle hair... cracked skin... cacti all over the place... kind of DRY!
so i suppose when it rains here... it's kind of welcome! 

i have grown to love rainy days!
feels sort of like being wrapped in a cocoon.
like being given permission to retreat.
a special time to reflect. 
a pass to just simply absorb it and just BE!  

hmmm... come to think of it... i think i could use another rainy day... what about you !  :) 

whether the sun is shining or the clouds are hanging about...
today is sure to be splendid!

I always say that about good rainy or even cloudy days- they give you permission to rest, to retreat, to hideout. I love that sort of thing.

I LOVE rainy days. They are my favorite.

Must know where you found the boots. LOVE THEM!

We have a different kind of drip going on here....The drip, drip, drip of the snow finally melting! Is's a lovely sound....Hello Spring! Are you on your way?

Such pretty pictures!

I loved most things about living in Colorado (we were in The Springs) but the dry air was one thing I really had a hard time with. It is soooo dry there!

I just want to drink it all in. Your photos are always so beautiful. It rained for a bit here this morning and I was loving it. I'm looking forward to spring showers.

Namasté,

There is NOTHING like a Texas down pour....its true...they say everythings bigger in Texas...even the rain storms are. It's been a while since we had a good rain...

Megan said...

Rainy days make me soooo sleepy! I like them when I have nothing to do, but that is rarely the case!

We lived in AZ for ten years and we LOVED when it would rain. Us girls would run outside and play in it...I loved the way it made the air smell. Then we moved to WA state...rains all the time...now we run outside and play when it's sunny!

Rachel said...

I love curling up in bed or on the couch on a rainy day; nothing like it!

Gini said...

Fabulous shots, as always! We, too, enjoy a rainy day or two around here - talk about dry....maybe next time I will think to capture the moment in pictures - you inspire...

I completely understand! What part of Houston?! That is where my parents moved my senior year of high school and still live there... AZ's climate has given me the driest craziest skin!

meg duerksen said...

MGF said...

I second what Meg said, but I wanna steal your boots too.
