I don't know about you, but I absolutely LOVE rainy days!

I always have.  Even when I was little.

I am fascinated by storms and would rather stand at the window and watch them than hide in the basement when the sirens go off or the TV weatherman tells me to "seek shelter".  One time, however, I was terrified of a horrible storm that roared through the town we were living in at the time and destroyed many homes and businesses.  My husband was on a business trip in Florida and I was left with downed trees and a garage that had been blown from it's foundation, not to mention a dog that took quite some time to recover!

But aside from that, I love the rolling sounds of thunder.  Lightening shows in the skies are amazing to me.  And I find the sound of a rain soothing.

Today is a gentle rain day.  We awoke to it's comforting sounds.  I feel cozy, relaxed and peaceful.

Wishing you a peaceFULLYsimple day.


  1. Oh How I completely agree with you!! NOTHING at all like hearing the thunder and the rain and KNOWING you DON"T HAVE TO GET UP :):) you can just roll over and enjoy the storm! or the rain!

    Have a Happy Rain day! Love and Hugs!

  2. We had a very rainy day yesterday. And we used it for baking oatmeal flakes cookies. I also find these days very cosy.
    All the best from Geneva,
