Today was cool and refreshing--a real change from our usual
hot, hot, hot.
The day started with clouds that kept building and building. Soon we heard the rumble of thunder. We thought the rain would miss us since it frequently does. But today we were lucky. A breeze came up that was cool and refreshing. Soon there were large drops of rain on the sidewalk.
The rain didn´t last long, but it was enough to give the plants a quick drink and wash the dust off.
Tonight we were able to light candles and sit on the patio. We didn´t roast marshmallows or put a fire in the chiminea. It wasn´t that cool. But it was nice enough to sit and chat outside. We plan to keep the windows open tonight, too. Can´t do that very often this time of year so we are taking advantage of it while we can.
