I suppose Missouri isn’t the prettiest state in the U. S. but I’m only saying that because someone who lives somewhere else will say it for me if I don’t say it, but when you’re living where you want to be living, and where you’ve wanted to live for so long . . it’s a beautiful place to be.
I’ve mentioned before that having spent most of the first 40+ years of my life in southwest Louisiana, where it seems to rain almost every day, I love rain. That was one thing that made it so hard for me to live in central Texas. It just doesn’t rain. We may get three or four rainy days per year but there are seldom the overcast, drizzly days that I love so much. Vince suffers a bit from SAD and the cloudy, overcast, gray days make him crazy and while I wouldn’t want them every day, or even half the time, I do love them when we get them. That was the good thing about Louisiana – it would rain/drizzle for a an hour or so and then the sun would come out. Something for everyone . . all in the same day.
There aren’t a lot of things that could make me put my knitting needles down and sit and look out the window all day but rain could do it.
This is the view out my front windows. Gorgeous! Rita had me outside before 5 this morning. I went back to bed and a little before 6, the rain woke me up hitting the window. We’ve had drizzle for a few days but this morning, we had real rain. I love it!
I was thinking how nice it was that the movers were here last Tuesday. If it had been this Tuesday, and Vince and I debated about putting it off a week in order to get more packing done, they would not have been able to drive through the yard to the back of the house and there would have been lots of wet, dirty feet tromping through the house.
Speaking of living where you want to be, last night I was talking to Chad and I told him something he had forgotten here. He said “I’m sure we’ll be back this weekend. Sounds like Addie thinks she’s spending every weekend with you.” Oh . . that is music to my ears!
Now . . if I can just get Vince to get things finished up in Texas, move here and return to a “normal” life.
