First, I sat at this desk, working on this computer, complaining about rain to the whole world via this blog. And I was grumpy.
Then something amazing happened. We had a rainbow. Not just any rainbow, but the biggest and brightest one I’ve ever seen in this part of the USA. A rainbow of such significance that Z-D phoned me on his way home from work to make sure that I was seeing this rainbow. And I was stunned.
Then yesterday, because the sun was shining, I was able to plant colorful flowers and pretty viney things in the many garden pots that decorate the exterior of our home. Pots that I really love to look at when I’m driving up the driveway or walking up the sidewalk. And I was very happy.
[I’m calling this particular pot, and its sister pot on the other side of the stoop, “Snack Time At Vacation Bible School” because it has chocolate drop coleus + coralberry punch superbells in it. How fun is that?]
So even though the weather forecast for today is rain, I’m still in a good mood. Creating the flower pots yesterday brightened my spirits. And reminded me that when the nice weather gets here, I must make the effort to enjoy every minute of it.
TGIF, everyone. Make it a good weekend. Rainy or sunny.
