Dreary Rainy Days
Can you believe the amount of clouds in that photo? I think we are on the third day of sunless skies. I'm starting to wish for a ray to poke through and shine. Just a little tiny wee one :) Cloudy days are easy to photograph in, no sun to fight with, no changing angles, no changing camera settings or heading under a tree for shade.
Yesterday was endlessly rainy, dreary, and humid. I watched the rainfall with Frodo, me sighing and wondering when the sun would peek out. He wanted to be outside, but drizzle is all he can tolerate-downpours are just not fun. I know now that the duck pond probably has more than enough water after the past two days!
Rainy days lead to some extra cleaning in the house, a little bit of daydreaming about the upcoming holidays and having all my children home. I browsed through some patterns on Ravelry looking for ideas never settling on one, however I have some new thoughts for presents.
Each fall I think of what is my favorite color of leaves. Orange, yellow, red, brown, purple.....I like them all-lately I've been enjoying the orange ones with hints of red, or yellow with hints of orange. I notice something new each season and I love how nature provides us with beauty that we can bask in. I don't like rainy days but I do like how all the colors are brighter, shinier and bolder because of the rain. Because of the wind, more leaves are on the ground-all sorts mingled together--maple, birch, oak, sassafras, locust, and walnut. Swirled together creating a nature bouquet.
All too soon the leaves will be gone. So each day I am outside, I take a photo and savor the now.
