Rain *** 200th Post!***

I know I missed Polaroid Monday. I'll post one soon to make up for it. In the meantime, today it is GORGEOUS. Abso-freaking-lutely fall gorgeous :) I started a Beginning Spanish course last night, and when the class was wrapping up, it just started dumping rain; it was thundering like crazy, and lightning was crashing everywhere. It. Was. Fantastic. :) Everyone was screaming (please, people...), running to their cars... I walked quietly and slowly, water sloshing in my shoes when I was barely 10 feet out the door (there may have been a puddle jump or two...). I drove home calmly and happily (even though you couldn't see the road. I'd say it was pretty close to flash-flooding), and by the time I got in the house, my pants, hoodie, and hat were completely soaked. I kissed Mr. Hercules hello, left my clothes in a nice big pile by the front door and jumped in a lovely hot shower. It was a perfect night :)

It continued to rain throughout the night, and has still been rainy today, but not as much. But I love the dreary grey--I feel right at home in it. (Have you caught on that I am not a fan of sunny days yet? Bah) Everything, even at work today, screams fall. So I offer you my 5 senses of this beautiful fall day:

Sight: my desktop wallpaper (can't remember where I got it to give credit, sorry!)

Touch: I can still feel Ty's scruffy kiss from this morning. (He rarely shaves during the week, which I adore. I like him scruffy. I hope to see a nice thick beard come winter!) Every morning, he leaves for work about an hour before me, and wakes me up by kissing me good morning/goodbye. It's one of my favorite moments of the day.

Sound: "Kingdom of Heaven" soundtrack; "Easy Money" by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds; "Candleburn" by Dishwalla; "Lament" by Light of Aidan; also listening to Peter Bradley Adams. You know how much I love him. And, of course, "Rain" by Patty Griffin, and "Rain" by Priscilla Ahn. How could I leave them out? (Rain, rain don't go away--the sun can come back another day)

Smell: a vanilla chai candle, and this divine skin oil from Haunt. It's absolutely delicious. You have no idea. This is the epitome of fall for me. It smells like blood oranges, cardamom, and orchids. I use it as a body oil, but also put it in my hair.

Taste: Fresh peaches with a little sugar from my co-worker's trees.

It's a beautiful day.

On a side note: I can't believe I've actually written 200 posts... insane! I'm feeling quite proud of myself, actually. Today is a good day to celebrate, and I'm feeling excited about following through with something I told myself I would do better at (I don't scrapbook, I'm not good at keeping a journal any more, so this seemed like the logical thing to do to keep better track of the wonderful things in my life). So to celebrate, if you leave a comment on this post, you will get something. A mix CD? A piece of jewelry made by moi? Something lovely from Etsy? Who knows! I haven't decided yet. :) But I will reward your readership with... something. :)

    Okay, you seriously don't have to send me anything - just reading your post is enough! :-) And I've been a bad blogger lately, so I totally don't deserve it. But I *am* working on my first Pay It Forward prize, LOL... FINALLY.

    Hope the rest of the day continues similarly wonderfully, and for your next Spanish class, 'que vaya bien!' :-) *hugs*

  2. Love it! I love the rain too.... Yesterday a very fussy Reagan and I left all the windows and doors open and just sat and listened to the rain for hours.... Am I a bad momma? Maybe... lol
