Southern California is known for its blue skies and it’s no wonder. They are amazing. We see them a lot here. Rain is a rare occurrence indeed.
There is something inside of me that absolutely loves rain. Thunderstorms… thick clouds of fog… gentle drops… I love it all. Maybe it comes from growing up in the lush green woods. Maybe it’s something more elemental having to do with the source of all life. I’m not sure what it is, but when we get a good rainy day, I feel like it’s Christmas.
We have had the good fortune of enjoying 4 nice rainy saturdays since moving out here. When I wake up to rain, I like to put on some nice acoustic music and start cooking something that will take all day. I like to make forts with Senya and give Zuri people food. The house is filled laughter and happiness. At some point we put our raincoats on and go play in the puddles and explore the creek, then we come back in to a warm, dry house that smells of delicious food.
