Rain Dancing

I'm not even going to pretend like I WOULDN'T dance in the rain, because I would and I WILL.  I love everything about the rain.  Everyone kept saying, "You can't ride your horse in the rain!"  And my reply back is, "And why not?"  I absolutely love it and to be honest so does Dolly.  It might seem odd to anyone that riding in the rain would be pleasurable and perhaps to others it is not.  For me it takes me to a much simpler time.  I pretend as if I am a rancher out looking for strays.  Or a pony express rider crossing the plains to make a delivery.  Or I just unwind and let the rain come down and my little Dolly plod along, the rain drops dripping off her mane.  For me rain is a joyous thing! 

Last night was my evening alone house sitting.  You all know I had big plans to crochet!  Well, I did half a row which finished up the following hat:

After that I had some dinner and promptly dozed off in the recliner.  I woke up 9:30 and went straight to bed.  LOL  Go figure. 

Plans are still on to move into our house Friday.  My hubby starts his journey from CA on the 25th.  I will have a week alone in the house.  I didn't get the TV issue resolved, but I will have internet that week so life is pretty darn good. 

SONG OF THE BLOG:  "Songs About Rain" by Gary Allan.  Love this guy!


  1. I'll tell you a secret, I have danced in the rain! I too am a rain lover! I like nothing better than the sound of the rain on a tin roof. I like to have the windows open and snuggle under a blanket with a cuppa and a book. I don't think you are crazy. I can't say, when I had horses, that I ever rode in the rain, but that was mostly because my parents wouldn't let me.

  2. Oh, forgot to add, I like your hat! I love brown and blue together!

  3. Rain is so soothing. Cleansing in a way. People complain so much about getting met, driving in it and the mud. To me it's just refreshing. Yes, rain on a tin roof is one of the best sounds. Mix that with leather, hay and horses and you're pretty much in heaven.

    I love brown and blue, too. Thanks!

  4. I know, people here complain non-stop about the rain and I won't. The way I look at it is the Good Lord is giving it to us for a reason, and He doesn't like complainers so, don't complain. The air is clean and the sky is blue after a rain and I love that too.

    It's gotten quite chilly here overnight, once the rain moved out. I think fall is setting in now!
