Feeling The Rain On My Face

I woke up to a gentle silent rain. It bubbled up on the flowers and dotted the tree leaves.

I think I could live in Seattle easily. I am happiest when it is raining. It's always been that way for me, even when I was a child. So many beautiful things about rain. 

How it sounds on the roof. How it pings against metal. The way it brings a coziness to the inside when looking out as it trickles down the glass window on the other side.

A strange thing has occurred with my morning glories. They are changing colors. Look at these. They're sort of pink, while the original ones are a deep purple.

I wonder what caused this? Not everything can be explained, and perhaps that is the beauty of it.

I love to stare at tree leaves. Look at the thin veins and see how they travel across the leaf. 

See you later today for Tweak It.


  1. I wish it would rain here in CA-so need it with the bad drought. I love the rain too and am missing it big time!


  2. My new home has a screened in porch and its been great to sit outside,bug and fly free but the very best part is the rain.. Seeing it smelling it,ahhhhhh:-)
    I actually sat a large piece of tin on the outer patio section so I could hear the ping ping ping.
    the Joys of life are found in the most natural things.

    ps- pc is messed up and goes at 3 to the repair person.
    just wanted you to know so when you post I wont be able to read it or comment.

  3. Love the sentiment expressed in that quotation. So true! I love a gentle rain and love what it does to the flowers. I also like a bit of breeze with it so I hear my lovely wind chimes out on the front porch. :-)

  4. There's something cozy about a rainy day at home that causes you to slow down. I have always enjoyed the quietness and the softer light a rainy day brings :-)

  5. I would love to wake up to some rain here! It's Sept and I can't remember when we had our last good rain here in So Cal. Those morning glories are so beauitful and delicate! How do the puppies do in the rain?

  6. I'm with you, Brenda...I love the rain, too. My father always used to make homemade bread and pots of soup on rainy days and the house was always cozy and warm. I still feel that way when it rains...

  7. I am with you. I love rainy days. Love the note; "Some just get wet." So true about so many aspects of life. Hugs

  8. I love gentle rain, it is such a joy to sit and listen to it. I love Seattle, they don't need air conditioning and the flowers just bloom so well.

  9. I love the rain. I love to walk in the rain. When it rains you see people hurrying into a store so as to not get wet. Not me. I leisurely walk in. The freshness on my face is glorious. My uncle taught me how to walk in the rain. He said, "You're sweet, but you're not made of sugar, and you won't melt in the rain."

  10. Beautiful post..when I was a little girl I would beg my mother to let me go out to play in the rain..Maybe I need to go play in the rain again..


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.

I appreciate each and every one of you!
