I'm sitting here listening to the rain. I love rain. I know it has it's negative sides. But I love the sound, the smell and the peacefulness of it. I'd left the windows open today even though it was raining outside. It has gotten pretty humid inside and I had to turn on the air so the kids wouldn't swelter during their quiet time. But I can still hear the rain and the wind chimes and it's relaxing. It's on days like this that I feel very lazy and relaxed. Although I'm not a normally energetic person the rain seems to slow me down a bit more. And yet at the same time I get more accomplished because I'm not running around stressed and forgetful.
