wishful thinking

Winnie The Pooh clouds.  

Again.

Oh, how I wish for rainclouds.

Dark, thick thunderclouds on the horizon, stretched for so far that they can't avoid us. Thunder shaking the summer day. Lightning to punctuate the night sky. (Just no tornadoes, thank you very much.)

Or

Smothering, grey rainclouds, drizzling a slow and steady rain for several days. Or a week. As far as the eye can see.

I'd even take another 10 minute cloud that just teases the grass for a few fleeting moments.

I'd love a reason to be upset I forgot my umbrella.  I'd love to pull on rainboots and splash in the puddles with my kiddos.  I'm ready to twirl in the raindrops with my girls.

Oh yes, I am hoping and dreaming and wishing for rain.

Day 3: clouds


ETA...I should add that  last night, we did get one of those 10 minute rainclouds while we were in town...though it missed our neighborhood.  But it still made me happy...those few raindrops...and getting to see the lightning on the horizon from Kansas storms!

I'll trade your clear skies for my unending rain in Germany- I don't think we've even gotten the chance to say hello to summer over here!
