Thankful for the rain

I know what you’re thinking.  It’s true, I am a little off balance today.  But I am so thankful for living in the Pacific Northwest with the rain and all that goes along with it.  The days are short now but soon they start getting longer.  It’s always a nice time of year to throw some stew in the crock pot and snuggle on the couch in front of the fire place with a good book.

I have lived in a couple different places but I always come home eventually.  You just can’t beat the mild marine climate.  It is at times grey bu it never gets too cold in the winter nor too hot in the summer and it stays green year-round.  We’re close to the coast and the mountains.  Even the desert is just a few hours away in the eastern part of the state.

The rain does get tiresome after a while but the promise of spring makes it all worthwhile.
