This is the best time of the year for a nice rain. It's not too hot so it's comfortable with the windows closed against the rain. But its warm enough to keep them all cracked open a bit, letting the fresh smell into the house. My french door was opened to the cool air and it never rained inside, instead falling straight down and not coming in at all. Only a pounding rain will splash into the house with the doors opened. My living room windows were cracked and I could hear and smell the rain. It was sweet and clean and totally the definition of a "cleansing rain". Everything is so green and lush.
I spent the day cleaning and organizing my house. With company arriving for the weekend it was perfect timing. I was able to clean the bathroom that was just painted and put it all back together, looking so nice with its new color. It was a perfect rainy day. I went to bed feeling as though I had really accomplished something. Or maybe the rain did. Either way, it was a good day.
