Be Careful What You Wish For

It rained all night. My electricity must have gone out at some point because my clock was flashing on and off, on and off.
I got up and got my trust Timex Expedition with the Indiglo and it told me what time it was.

It was early/late.

It's still raining this morning, coming in waves like labor pains. The wind whips up and drives branches and wind chimes into a frenzy and then it calms down again to just the constant rain falling.

Owen will be here soon. No walking about outside for us this morning. Just running in the house, climbing, munching food and playing with toys. And reading books. And playing peek-a-boo. And kissing. I hope he's in a kissing mood.

Kathleen left after oatmeal and tea to go home to her kids. Her dogs are her kids and she worries about them all night long when she's not with them. They worry about her too. She seemed to be feeling okay and I had a good time with her last night. I hope she's cuddled up now with Maggie and Harry and Bob and a few of the cats too.
I assume her chickens are still in their coop but with Kathleen...well, you never know.

The rain pours. The ground opens its dusty mouth and receives.

Good morning.


  1. mmm..lovely rainy photo. I can almost hear those windchimes. Are you by yourself again? Hope you and Owen have a nice time...

  2. Nice one Sis. I'm glad you extracted some positive vibes from the rain, it's really pissing me off. This was a good blog, full of good rain images. Thanks.

  3. Good morning! I hope your rainy day feels cozy and warm, and that you get your kisses! Speaking of, I'm going to go find some little cheeks to smooch.

  4. can you sit on your porch in the rain...?
    that is my idea of bliss.

  5. Please send us some of that rain when you're done with it!

  6. Good morning. I enjoyed your photos. They are calling for a downpour here in Buttfuck, Ohio, too.

    Love you.

  7. It did that all last night at my house too and then when I took my grandson to school this morning the bottom dropped out. He loved it though because he got to use his Spongebob umbrella which is almost as cute as he is!

  8. Good morning Ms Moon. I wanted to write last night, after I read your Day post on my phone, but it's impossible to post from the phone. You helped me fall off to sleep better. I was worried about you and it was just nice to hear your voice and your day. Today I love seeing these rain images and your telling of the morning and the Owen anticipation. I'm glad Kathleen is home with her babies. Oh that pizza sent me into a frenzy. You sure do know how to cook. Wow. It was beautiful. Like you. Enjoy your inside time and the crazy rain.
    We're supposed to get the same tonight.

  9. Even watching the rain falling from your porch seems poetic Ms Moon. Thanks for sharing

  10. you are the oasis.

  11. Oh, good morning.

    You ARE my good morning, you know.

  12. Screamish- Yep. Mr. Moon's at auction. He'll be home tonight.

    Brother W. B.- Why is the rain pissing you off? I think it's nice. Plus, my garden really needed it.

    Lora- I've managed to get a few kisses. Have to be fast with this boy.

    deb- Yep. I can sit on three different porches and watch the rain. Not at the same time, though.

    lulumarie- Doin' my best!

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- Be careful in the traffic on the way home, my love.

    Lois- Did you get a picture?

    Bethany- Pizza is so easy. I'm glad that my words made you sleep better. You are such a precious.

    Rebecca- It's a lovely sight, that rain.

    rebecca- As are YOU!

    Elizabeth- And you mine.

  13. We need some of that here. The rain I mean, though Owen kisses wouldn't be too bad :)

  14. Thank you. I will. Luckily, I only live about 5 minutes away from work.

    Love you!

  15. I love rain on a non-leaky roof.

  16. Stephanie- Rain AND Owen kisses. Am I the luckiest woman in the world or what?

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- I hope the rain is your lullaby tonight.

    Mwa- My porches leak like crazy. That's okay, though.

  17. My goodness. That is some rain!

  18. Lord, we need the rain here but only got a few sprinkles today. It was a lovely day though.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
