Wet Wet Wet Wednesday - it has rained for most of the night and right up to now (three in the afternoon) - just steady soaking rain without the wind.
It reminded me of of the Dr. Seuss book:
"I wish that I had duck feet"
It also reminded me of the times when I would spend wet afternoons reading with my children - these times were so special and hold special places in my memory.
So too do the times when I have woken them from sleep, wrapped them in blankets and given them hot chocolate - and then together we would sit at the window and watch a storm. Both of them love thunder storms and both also remember those times.
The sky is a bit brighter now and I think the rain is easing but the ground is beautiful brown and wet.
I love the changing of the seasons and I noticed over the past few days and that days are lighter later and that we have indeed passed mid-winter.
To those of you in summertime - I hope you can find somewhere cool,and a refreshing cold drink - for those of us "down under" keep warm and safe.
Love and hugs,
