Gratitude Day 2: Rain

It rained again today.  All.  Day.  Cool and drizzly.  It was wonderful.  We’ve had maybe 3 inches so far this year?  Not enough for this Northwest girl.  The drought has made me feel like I’ve been strapped to The Machine for the past two years.  So I’ll enjoy every little drop we get.

We tasted rain and saved worms and stomped in puddles and drank cocoa.

I could get used to this.
