A Rainy Day

It was overcast with a few sprinkles yesterday keeping the temps nice and cool.

We've had a lot of overcast days and days with cool breezes.

I'm lovin' it!  I've been able to use my front porch much later in the year than normal.

It's also saving me money since I've been able to have the house opened up and the AC off.

The rain began around 3:30 this morning and it's still raining as I write this post.

We can definitely use the rain as our lakes and rivers are down quite a bit.

My flower and vegetable gardens are loving it;
soaking up the nourishment that the rain water has to offer.

Rain gives us an opportunity to slow down.

Country Boy and I love to sit on the front porch and listen to the rain.

Do you slow down and enjoy the rain when it comes?


I've had a request for a tutorial on the black & white/color photos that I've been creating in PhotoShop Elements.  If you have Elements and are interested, I will be posting a tutorial tomorrow on how I created the above photo.

I like thunderstorms and snow for the slow-down reason. During a storm I must shut everything off, because we're on the end of a power line route and if lightning zaps it, it takes out the power in our entire house. And snow ... ah. It just says, "stop" to me.

Nice post.

We had a lovely rainy day yesterday but today it's in the 80s and very humid. It's summer, I guess.

Beautiful coneflower -- will love to see your tutorial!

If we ever get any rain, we will sit on the front porch and enjoy it.

What a blessing to be able to turn off the a/c in June! That'd never happen here. Enjoy your soaking rain. The plants are going to love it and reward you later. :)
