Rainy Day Reflections……

This morning I awoke to the sound of raindrops pitter-pattering against my window pane, feeling a few hitting my cheek, as I had forgotten to close my window before falling asleep.

I predicted today’s shower, you know… 2 days ago.

My Mom didn’t believe me, but one should never doubt my right knee or the left side of my head. They always know when the weather is about to change… rain coming… blizzard blowing in… dry spell ahead…

I always thought I could be very fond of rainy days if I didn’t always have such a headache when they came.

Currently, I do not have a headache so I am enjoying the rain & it is putting me in the mood to do cozy things, think more romantic thoughts & listen to beautiful music.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said it best when he stated, “The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

Indeed, sir, & here on the dry prairies, we are grateful for the moisture from heaven.

Right now I am listening to, I believe, my favorite performance by Jan Mulder.

He is a man who composes gorgeous music, & who actually found me on Youtube due to the posting of a few of my performances. So glad he did because his music is stunning.

I am sure you will wish to have a cup of tea on hand today.

If you were here, I would offer you Saskatoon Berry Tea, only available in my area due to it being a native berry, similar to that of a blueberry, just more sedate in flavor.

Although, as Roger Miller said, “Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet.”


As for me, I am thinking I shall write a letter or two…

Even a little long over-due reading would be appropriate…

How is the weather where you are today, dear kindred spirits?

  1. So lovely! Thanks for sharing the wonderful Mulder. He is amazing. It was sprinkling here the same day you posted this and it was quite refreshing especially since we have been in a terrible drought. Also, I sent you girls your letters a couple of days ago, so hopefully you’ll be receiving them soon 🙂


  2. I know I’m late in commenting, but I just love this post. So calming and full of little snippets of loveliness. I absolutely love all classical and instrumental music too! I’m listening to a playlist I made on Youtube right now as I sip tea and write to you! I started playing piano when I was 5 and I think that’s where my love of it comes from – so calming and perfect for a rainy day. 🙂 Love this, girlfriend!
