975. Rain, I can hear you making small holes in the silence. The many notes of falling rain are all in tune. ~Unknown

Grey clouds flowing overhead
Dead silence across the rolling hills
Misting haze hovering over the grass
Water dripping from leaf to leaf
Speckling pavement like splattered ink
Soft knocking at your door
Feel it, taste it on your lips
Rain…
~Sarah Mariah

The only thing I love more
than a day of rain
is a night of rain,
a warm, colourless rain
that paints itself upon me
in long melodic lines.

Walked for half an hour in the garden. A fine rain was falling, and the landscape was that of autumn. The sky was hung with various shades of gray, and mists hovered in the distance – a melancholy nature.  The leaves were falling on all sides like the last illusions of youth under the tears of irremediable grief. A brood of chattering birds were chasing each other through the shrubberies, and playing games among the branches, like a knot of hiding schoolboys. Every landscape is, as it were, a state of the soul, and whoever penetrates into both is astonished to find how much likeness there is in each detail. ~Edited excerpt from Henri Frédéric Amiel

May he(Solomon) be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth. Praise be to His(God) glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and amen. ~Psalm 72:6, 19  ✝

  1. Watching the TCU game last night I couldn’t get over the pouring cold rain there in Fort Worth—as the weather here has been so unseasonably mild and dry. They say the system over y’all will be here by tomorrow… so we shall see—crazy weather this season to be sure—rest well from the cooking marathon 🙂

    • So you watched the game, huh?! Yes it has poured and poured and been very coldish these last several days. As much as I love the rain, I’m ready to see the sun for a few days. I do hope you get some of this rain and that your weather improves with its coming. I’ve been taking it easy most of the day and so the cooking marathon is now gone from my memory. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

      • I’m glad the marathon is now a fading memory 🙂 I get all hyped up on the front end, then peter out quickly —
        I really think this weather is truly whacky. Business is so off from this time last year that Gregory is fretful but I know that its because with the springlike weather no one is thinking Christmas shopping–I saw two different guys in the grocery store wearing shorts—if that doesn’t scream may, I don’t know what does—you’ve to to have a chill in the air to get folks in that holiday mode!!

      • The weather is very strange and I have a feeling it’s going to remain that way all winter. They say this is the most powerful el nino they’ve ever seen and I can believe it with all the rain we’ve been having. Oh I do hope business picks up and I’ll bet it does when December gets here. That usually gets people in the holiday and shopping mood. Love, N 🙂 ❤
