For the first time while being here, I felt a little grey early on, a reflection of the beginning of the day I suppose. Not because of being here, but of not being within a two hour drive of my daughters (Erin & Jessi) and grandson (Liam). This is him; he is a sweet soul, full of joy and laughter and an intellegent guy!
I spent the rest of my day enjoying the rain, taking care of things indoors, although I did get my walk to the mailbox! Johny completed the wood rack for our firewood, a big project and well done! Now to chop all the wood we need for the winter to come, another big job! Eventually, this rack will be filled with wood in anticipation of all the fires we will need to warm the cabin in our wood burning stove!
Later this evening, the sky broke loose again, with thunder and lightning and hail. Not big enough to cause damage, but it sure made a loud pinging melody on the tin roof! I just love that sound!
As I sit here writing, the evening progresses, and we still have rain. And thunder rumbling in the distance, though sometimes getting a little closer, with the rain falling then pelting then falling again. As the rain has ebbed and flowed, the shrouding of the clouds on the mountain view has been mesmerizing; hardly a moment has passed that there isn't a different cloak. I'll leave you with this one, enjoy!
