All the years of living in a desert have given me an appreciation for the rainy days. When others are depressed because there are clouds, I will be found by a window lost in the beauty of their wispy trails and mountains of blue and grey reaching high above the desert hills. Rain mesmerizes me like the ocean does other people.
It is a call to race around outside, puddle jump, and get happily soaked!
Of course, there is a bit of a "sog factor" that comes with the rain. Soggy horse, soggy me, soggy... well soggy everything!
And close on the heels of the sogginess is the mud...
Lots of mud. Everywhere...
You will note that I did not post any pictures of the mud in the chicken coop... Let your imagination go and you still will probably not come quite close to the soupy concoction in there.
You are welcome.
Rain isn't the only thing we have had lately - we have also had fog!
There really are hills out there! Fog is so rare here that it takes me quite a while to register exactly what it is that I am seeing.
Today? No rain. Today we have glorious blue skies and sunshine!
