Gray and Gloomy..
I am thankful for the wonderful April rain which fell softly throughout the nite.
Having NOT yet turned on the sprinkler system, the freshly first mowed lawn welcomed the moisture.
Colorado soil requires aeration,and the little holes are like cups for the raindrops..
The newly planted roses also are enjoying the soaking rain,.while the older established roses are putting forth new leaves and promises of beautiful blooms..
but mostly, I am so thankful for the April rains..
for washing away all the pollen..
but when outdoors is all dark and gloomy,
like clearing closets, preparing donations and recyclables..
sometimes I use this time for me..
doing the things I really like best..
editing my photos..
scanning old photographs from times gone by..
preparing memory books/cds for siblings and nieces and nephews..
the one who has all the old photos..
the one who lives fartherest away..
they in beach cities along the Florida panhandle..
always have been..but I'm the one who always wrote home the most..
so.. on these gray days, I've nothing but warm and cheery thoughts to keep me company..
with my constant company..
my furbabies are underfoot, or asleep wherever they plopped after playing..
for all the right reasons..
a time for recalling beautiful memories of the past..
and anticipation for glorious blooms of May yet to be..
