Blog Rewind - Time of Refreshing...

Originally blogged on May 28, 2007.

I've had some time lately to spend working in my art room.  I discovered that I work best when I can either watch or listen to the television.  I prefer a good movie, so I set up my lap top and added some speakers and bingo...I have a theater.  Okay, maybe not a real theater, but it works for me!  We have had a little rain over the weekend and that was nice.  I can see the canal in the backyard from my window and I like it when it rains and it is a little dark while I work.  Rain is refreshing and it feeds the earth and stimulates life. I love to watch it as it drops and meets the water and sends ripples across the canal.

John Ruskin wrote that "Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."

Hope you are enjoying times of refreshing!

Have a  blessed day!

You must live someplace that doesn't get rain all the time? I used to think of it as refreshing and
I dream of the day when I can truly enjoy a good romantic refreshing rain like I once did!

But alas I currently live in the place where it once rained 145 days straight
And every year it becomes harder for me to appreciate it! Thanks for reminding me
There is a different life awaiting me out there!!!
