The rain, rain, rain came down, down, down

and the rain, rain, rain came down. Yes, it's raining, again, it's been raining for four days now - at least I think it's four days.

Normally I really don't mind rain. It gives me an excuse to get things done - things that normally make me feel guilty when I waste a summer day on them. Things like ironing (I mean it isn't like I actually iron but on days like this I think about doing it), and brushing the pets, and arranging my scrapbook paper by color. You know really important things.

And seriously, there is nothing better than lying in bed next to the HotY and listening to the rain pitter patter on the roof. LOVE that sound.

One of my favorite songs of all time, Why Worry by Dire Straits actually reminds me of the rain. Okay fine, they talk about rain in the song so it really isn't a stretch but even without the rain reference it would still evoke thoughts of rain - just listen, you'll see. I was thinking there was a George Winston song that made me think of rain also, but then I remembered that one reminds me of falling leaves so no clip for you.

ANYWAY - I do like the rain, well except for that yucky worm smell, but I could do with a little sunshine tomorrow. If I think about ironing one more day I might actually do it and really that would just be setting an entirely new set of expectations and I'm not sure I'm ready to go there yet :-)
