Actually, it's been quite relaxing today sitting at my desk with the window open and listening to the raindrops falling through the trees right outside. It's been raining pretty much nonstop for the last few days, so I still don't have any pretty pictures to show you. Soon, I'm hoping, although the weatherman says the rain is sticking around at least for another day.
I'd forgotten how quiet and slow it is here in Iowa. It's not heaven but it's pretty close. I kind of feel like I'm on an extended vacation and it's been a little hard to get back into the swing of things. There's just something in the air that's just so calming and I find myself just sitting and doing absolutely nothing for long periods of time. It feels quite wonderful. No sirens, no buses or trains, just rain and an owl that lives in the tree outside. It's really perfect.
Tomorrow will be for unpacking my office/craft room, and putting the finishing touches on the paint. Although, I'm thinking the soft gray I chose for the walls may be a little too calm and relaxing. We'll see. I'll have to get your opinion when I can take some photos. Thank you so much for the well wishes and the welcome back! I missed you all here in blogland. It feels good to be connected again!
