Autumn Rain

Today is another beautiful day. "Sure", you say. "Can't you see it's still raining and has been for days?" Well, of course I can, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy it.

When I took the dog out this morning it was coming down in that gentle, slightly more than a mist, rainfall. The air had that great autumn scent and the sounds of the drops on the leaves and the flowers that are still hanging on, takes me back to my childhood. Staying in a cabin at the lake, reading a good book, and listening to the rain on the roof while warming at the wood stove.

A cup of peach tea sounds good about now.
