The January rain is still pouring. Pools are getting a green tinge and pool toys lie unused and forgotten.
There are some that relish running and playing in the warm rain looking for goodies in the grass.
Everything is lush and green and blooming in the cool and wet.
They'll need to bomb dive the pool today to get a few inches of water out.
I'm not complaining. There was a flood last year and a drought before that. I love the rain.
I love how it makes everything quiet including children and the outside world in general.
I love how everything is fresh and dewy and not wilting in the heat.
We don't feel obligated to buzz around being busy and fun on the week-end. Instead there will be hot chocolate, tea, cup cakes, home made pizza, maybe some board games and cards and lashings of Ella Fitzgerald- my favourite rainy weather music.
