Rain, Rain go Away
Rain, Rain go away, come again another day
It's all over the news, our national obsession, the weather. We continue, stoic and tenacious but it's beginning to wilt the spirit. Working outdoors, I can't avoid the rain, there's trees for shelter in the forest, but little else, and I traipse home most days damp and mud splattered, aching for a lie down and a hot shower.
I had envisioned frolicking in buttercup meadows in the bright sunshine, not to be. The upside is, everything is green and lush, the trees pulse with life, squirrels shake their tails of water and the cows mooch in the scrub. Once you embrace it, you enjoy it, but I am looking forward to some Spanish warmth next month.
