I'm beginning to feel like animals will arrive, two by two, outside my house soon.

This.Rain.
And.Cold.

I want my summer back.
I don't care how fantastic the photographic opportunities are!

Sorta.




Off to the beach is a beautiful Friday idea.   Even if I have to do it inside my computer.

Feeling Beachie

This week’s co-host is Donetta from My Constant Thought.
She came up with the two statements


The statements:


1.      Rain  is my least favourite weather.


To clarify, FOUR DAYS OF STRAIGHT RAIN is my least favourite weather.

Because, the natives:  they be sooooo restless!



2.  When I was single I thought  AWESOME!!!     And no you can't tell me what to do.


The irony is:  now that is what is said to me on a daily basis. 



3.  My worst subject in high school was Math.  


Which is of course why my former job involved payroll.

4.  I write best when it's late at night and the house is quiet and my tea is steeping hot.


Still, inspiration can strike at any moment and I have often found myself scribbling lines in my notebook on a crowded train.
Or a park.
the beach.
at 4 am hunched over my notebook in bed, using my phone screen for light.


So basically, the most important thing, is just write when the mood strikes.

I think that also applies to never-ending rainy days.




Do rainy days give you the blues?

Boy, do I have a lot of Green!!

Not money... I mean, of the plant variety. 



 Why is that you ask?

Because what I do not have a lot of lately, is Yellow.

As in the warm sunshine variety.

I got rain y'all.  
And when the downpour threatened to drench both myself and my expensive camera; this photo shoot had to go indoors pronto.

 Monkey Boy was happily in his room playing Lego.   And I noticed he had leaned one of his Lego storage containers along the window ledge.  Thus creating an interesting study in green.


 After I took this shot, and straightened back up.... you cannot imagine what I found at eye level on the window.


Rain or shine, opportunity abounds everywhere.
Some days, you just have to be in the right place to notice it.
