rain


It's been raining here. I wish that I had a cabin in the woods, made of logs or wood with a tin roof on it. I'd have a big screened in porch with a hammock where I could lie there and listen to the rain when it gets a little warmer. Or maybe I could put a big old clawfoot tub out there and just soak to the sound of the rain on the roof. Add to that the cacophony of sounds emitted by the various creatures of the night in the southern forest. The cicadas, crickets and tree frogs would provide the symphony with the rain providing the tympany. I wish I were there now. O wish I could be there with my kids. My son would love it, my daughter who tends to be more citified would hate it. I can see Drew and I sitting on the porch talking about the goofy shit he loves to talk about. I can see Ann sitting inside talking on her cellphone or on the laptop, smiling at what she's reading. My cats that my mom has and won't give back (long story), could be there too. They would love the porch, I can feel Girly's soft fur against the back of my calf as she walks by. Ya'll forgive me, I am trying to make myself tired enough to go to bed and this really is helping me relax. yeah sitting there talking to my babies, maybe sipping on a dew. Gonna lie down soon.
