I had a rather difficult time sleeping.I woke up to a grey rainy day; with one of those all day soaker rains so rare and appreciated in my Utah desert home.
I have a perverse fondness for an occasionally rainy day. It’s the kind of day that leaves me with a desire to curl up with a good books and a plate of cookies. Since there were not cookies to be had in the house and I had a deadline this morning I didn’t get to indulge this impulse.
But the standing Thursday afternoon Relief Society Presidency meeting was canceled, which gave me a few extra hours this afternoon, always a bonus.
I used my extra time to go grocery shopping. I also dropped by Scrappily Everafter to pick up some materials for the make and takes I will be demonstrating Saturday for National Scrapbook Day. Once I figure it out, I’ll post a photo on my blog.
I noticed the raindrops on rose leaves this morning.
This afternoon when I was unloading groceries the sun came out and sent all the drops a sparkling. So I dumped the groceries on the table and went on a short photographic tour of my back yard.
As I wandered I discovered a bunch of blue/ purple / pink flowers. They seem to go together in kind of a photo essay, a purpled rainy day.
Or something along those lines.
