Blissful Moments on Rainy Days

I know I am very spontaneous this week. I do posts about this and that - things my life consists of. My soul was very happy today as well as my body, which truly got heated up in the last couple of weeks. Yes, it rained heavily today. I finished my office the exact time it started pouring water from the sky... I was more than grateful to the Nature for giving us this relief. I expect evening to be cool and soothing.
I reached home, did some house things quickly and made a cup of black coffee for myself. After that I went back to the house, but a timely and wonderful thought struck me to go out and have a pleasant time under the cloudy sky.. with the same cup of coffee - it tasted special. It looked special, reflecting the sky on its surface. I haven't felt such joy for a long time... I was looking around, on our plants trying to guess their feelings about this blissful weather today. They were grateful too, I could see it.
My eyes fell on this waving plant which grows in the pot under the citrus tree you can see at the background. Last year it was very small, continuously drying, loosing its leaves, I thought it wouldn't make it. But look at it now - so green, so lively and ready to meet sunshine every morning and kiss the stars every  night. 
Rainy weather always makes me dreamy... makes me happy... makes me feel good and content. It makes me feel I am home.
Wishing you all a blissful weekend!

  2. I love the rain too. That's why I lived up in the Pacific Northwest USA for so long. The climate is very cool and wet. I treasure rainy days here on the east coast now too. They are so cozy. I love to do crafts, read or watch movies all comfy. At night if it's raining, I'll go to bed early and read just to listen to the rain.

    1. Right, cozy is what I associate with rain... you can do crafting, have some nice hot drink or simply day dream...

  5. I ADORE the rain - nothing better than a nap on a really rainy day, either! I had to smile, and thought of you immediately this week - our local paper ran a full page article on Holi, with beautiful photos.

    Hope your weekend is wonderful, full of pretty rain, Anna - XOXO

  6. How true you write Anna, i feel the same way about rain! Love the season, the hope, the way everything in nature gets cleaned by rain. Rain is somehow so very romantic na? I used to enjoy the rains so much, especially walking in the slight drizzle. But now with kids, it has changed and i miss the small things i used to do :)

    Hope you have a great weekend!
    Love..

  7. Couple of days back, we too had rains. Isn't it so wonderful? No amount of ACs can give that feeling. I love the smell of earth when it rains, kinda soothing :)
    We commonly call that plant as money plant and use it for decor. My parents' place have many of those. I am actually a bad Gardner, so I prefer plants with colours and self striped leaves. So even if the flowers don't bloom properly, still it looks colourful:)

  11. Bangalore is called the AC city, and guess what my city has finally got its AC repaired. It rained here too :-) And I loved it.
    Mangoes are the only exciting thing during summer :-) Have you tasted the variety of mangoes in India? :-) you'll love them
