Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Can you smell it?

The scent on of damp earth in the wind.  We were smelling it for hours, heard the lightening and were celebrating the cool breeze, The clouds were rolling & building like huge gray pillows  I poured rain!  Every where but here.

 RAIN! 004

In the first few hours this is the result of our first rain storm.

Mother Nature can be such a tease.

RAIN! 005

An hour or so later when we decided to eat outside on the patio it started drizzling, a nice soft steady rain which soaked in immediately. I’m not sure how much we got but it may have been an inch at most.  Some areas around us received 3-6 inches.  As nice as it sounds that much rain falling on dry soil just runs off and created a lot of damage.

As much as I wanted to dance in the rain I had my chocolate birthday cake inside & celebrated the gift of another year as well as the rain

Hope you had a wonderful day!

    It's so nice to be able to smell the rain coming and in the air. It's a shame you only got a few drops :-(
