Today was actually a rainy day here in Phoenix. These days are so rare it's ridiculous, so when they present themselves, I take full advantage. I stayed inside all day working on projects, wrapping gifts, doing crafts and writing out x-mas cards. I had candles burning, ate soup for lunch and sipped hot herbal tea while hanging out in my comfies all day long...it was heaven. The rain fell from the sky all day. I sat by the window and watched with delight as the tips of tree branches dripped into puddles, and passing cars sprayed water on the sidewalk. There is something about the rain that makes me stop rushing and just be.
