It's raining hard again here. We're in the middle of the rainy season here in the Philippines, but there are times when it doesn't just rain. Sometimes it really, really pours.
And when that happens, I am in heaven.
I love the rain. I live in a part of Metro Manila that's away from the traffic and where there are lots of trees. So it gets really nice and cool here when it's raining. Makes me to just want to stay in bed under the covers, with a good book. Or to play in the rain (only if there's no thunder and lightning, though). Someone I know likes to bake cookies when it's raining; she says they smell and taste better somehow. Another person I know hates the rain and bitches about it, because it causes all sorts of even worse than the usual traffic jams.
Not me, though. If only flooding wasn't a problem (which it is, not only in the Philippines but in neighboring countries as well), I'd be happy with rain every day. That doesn't mean I don't like the sun, because I do -- especially when I go to the beach! But there's just something about the sound of raindrops falling on the ceiling and against the window that's so relaxing. And the smell is heavenly too.
Work beckons, though (and blog lurking). So bed, see you later. Book, wait for me. Hmmm...maybe I'll toast to the rain later. Having a drink or two while listening to good music on a rainy night sounds good.
I hope everyone has a good day today.
