{dancin' in the rain} SPT

{dancin' in the rain} SPT
It has been raining for the past two days and I am absolutely loving it. We slept with our bedroom slider open and the heater on last night as to hear and feel the cool October weather. Finally. Just last week, temperatures were in the 90's. All of the green looks that much more vibrant and the ocean looks alive as it crashes violently onto the beach. I love to hear the cars travel through the water, disturbing the calm of it all. The falling leaves are washed away for the winter. The smell. How to describe the smell of rain? This weather makes me want to hibernate. I want to cuddle up on the couch with a nice, long novel or lock myself in my craft room to create- even if only for an hour. I love the rain, don't you? It makes me feel solid and here, even as I dance and taste those sweet raindrops- I feel so free.

More self portraits found here and here.

PS- If you'd like to link my blog I've created a small version of my new banner for you.

Love the banner Jo. I think so far it's my fav. I too really enjoy the rain, especially since I don't have to drive in it too much. I am so looking forward to using the fireplace and drinking my tea!! Oh, the life of leisure (lol)

Great picture! I wish I had time to dance in the rain; I do love it too, but only if I don't have to drive in it. Scary.....
We have been sleeping with our slider open too. The down comforter makes it perfect. I think one morning I might wake up to find a popsicle where my puppy used to sleep, though! Oh My..what a thought! :/
I love this banner best. When I start my blog, I want to link to yours....and Aimee's.....and Kimmy's.....Any others I should be reading? By the way, the rain has been perfect for sneaking in a chapter or two of my new book - Goodnight Nobody! :)
