Woke this morning to an very welcome sound -rain! West Texas has been in a bit of a drought again for some time, and our farmers need the rain. Being a farm kid still at heart, it makes me so happy when it rains 💦! It's raining steady enough that my usual Saturday 4+ MI walk may not happen. Too wet to go outside and garden today so far, too. So it looks like it's an indoor exercise day! I have been committed to walking for many months now. It is my go to, my peaceful space, my happy place. My brain it's kind of freaking out, like what will we do?! My brain is a bit neurotic at times, though I don't usually say it out loud. Of course I'll be fine, rain makes me happy!! I think I am just seeing the humor in it this morning, considering that the last few months I've walked in snow, really freaking cold wind, dry and arid days, and even in light rain. But no, not on ice or pouring rain - both of which are scarce here. So... Here's to a beautiful rainy day and new possibilities!

    I do love to lie in bed and listen to the rain. Unfortunately, it's been all snow for us. I know exactly what you mean about your walks - it's my quiet time to think or just enjoy a little bit of nature, even if it is just the walking path behind my house! Daisy and I had been enjoying quite a streak of daily walks until Wednesday when it started snowing and didn't stop until last night sometime. We might give it a try this afternoon depending on how fierce the winds are. Enjoy your rainy day!

    Yes, I love rain as well. How about indoor walking? Walking is the best therapy in the world for me and I don't know what I'd do without it. Have a lovely day.
