After the rain

We dont get a lot of rain here in Texas, so when we do, it’s kind of like a special occasion.  To me, anyway. There’s nothing I love more than a good thunderstorm and the sound of rain and the way the house goes all dark and cozy and candles and hot tea become suddenly quite necessary. It's been stormy all week, so I've been in bliss.  Today it's sunny out, though, and I’m writing this on Ommwriter Dana II, with ambient sounds #6 playing in my earphones, which involves wind and rain. And drip, drip, drip at the sound of each keystroke (#7). It’s pretty heavenly, I’m not gonna lie. Now all I need is some blackout curtains and I can recreate my rain storm anytime I please. :)

I had a mini photo session this morning, and I picked a little handful of these pretty white lilies (or lily lookalikes, I don’t claim to be a flower expert). They smell so nice, and I’m sure they’re the result of all this rain we’ve had. I’ll enjoy them all throughout the day as I edit photos. Loving life today. Happy Friday to you, and enjoy your weekend…
