It's been a rainy weekend off and on. My plants are happy since they got a good drink. The rain is helping the leaves release their grip from the branches of the trees. They are landing all over the driveway and the deck. My hubby Bob keeps going out there with his blower and tries to corral them all up. It's a thankless job, since as soon as he finishes his task, a breeze comes and the processes starts all over again and covers the driveway and the deck with colorful, beautiful leaves. But it looks so clean and neat for a few minutes anyway. The weather forecast is calling for rain for the whole week until next weekend. And so it begins, our rainy season. I hope I can escape somewhere south of here where the sun continues to shine in the winter. Having grown up in Southern California I really miss the sun in the winter. After a month or two of gray skies and foggy days and nights it gets very draining on my soul. I have never considered myself a sun-worshiper but every so often the sun will shine in the winter here and everything looks gloriously beautiful. It's amazing how your whole outlook on life improves when the sun is out. I've met a few people who have lived here all their lives and they love and prefer this time of the year. They actually don't like the sunny days. Can you imagine?? Not me. Give me sunshine anytime. I love it.
