2007-04-25 Rainy Days in the Spring

Rainy Days in the Spring – I woke up this morning to the sound of rain on the windows. Love that sound…but mostly when I can lay in bed with my dog at my feet and my cat at my side. Not necessarily when I have to get up to walk the dog, then go to work.

Still, when I was working in the garden Saturday, cleaning out all the winter refuse and dead stuff, I was worried because everything seemed so dry.

Now I have blisters and slivers on my hands and an aching back, but the soil is soft and moist and…the grass needs mowing and the dandelions are popping out.

You just can’t have the joy without the pain, I guess.
