on a rainy day,
a slice of sun in my tea cup-
warm thoughts of you
~ ~ ~
I have a love-hate relationship with the rain. I love the sound of the rain--it's so soothing, isn't it? Tapping on my window, making the grass green. When it rains, it's nice to cuddle up with a good book and a cup of tea, all cozy and warm inside on an Autumn day.
I like walking in the rain, too, except when it pours, my umbrella turns inside out in the stormy wind, and I get soaking wet. Yet, there is something romantic about the rain, especially on a cool evening, city lights reflected in the puddles, walking hand in hand with a loved one. Or on a country road, colorful leaves falling and whirling in the rain.
I took this photograph by my dining room window, as it rains outside in the field across the street. The grass is still green, and only a few leaves are starting to turn golden. The cup is special as it's hand painted by an artisan in Amalfi, Italy. The bright yellow color is so cheerful on a rainy day. And yes, a couple of cookies make it all better, too!
~ I hope you're enjoying Autumn as much as I am.~
