The first thunderstorm of the season started last night. I love waking up in the night to hear thunder and squint my eyes open to watch for the flashes of lightning. It was especially nice to wake up to today, since I knew I had plenty of things I wanted to get done, and, as much as I love sunny days, I can do so much more when it's raining!
After a few hours of making phone calls, doing laundry, putting away all those winter clothes that have been piled on my floor since I moved them out of my closet, and doing an impromptu bathroom-drawer cleanup, I felt like I deserved a nice little break. I got my latest library book and got cozy in the sunroom so I could hear the rain coming down:
I really love the pear tree in the background - I don't want it to turn green just yet!
