April Showers Bring May Flowers

I always loved was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs." - Jesse Owens

What a great quote…it actually captures exactly the feeling I have and what I was trying to say a while back. It’s not about anything but getting out there and doing it.

It’s raining out right now. I had something else in mind to write when I started this, but then the rain came and I had different thoughts come to my mind…It’s such a great day to just lay in bed…in fact I hadn’t made my bed yet today, it’s very tempting to crawl back under the covers as it is (and I didn’t get enough sleep last night) and the rain coming down is perfect sleeping weather. OK, granted, it can be enough is enough eventually when it comes to too many rainy days in a row…but this is a first. We haven’t had rain in a long time (snow yes, rain no) and the rain is cleansing…it will clear up the last of the dirty crappy snow we have…it will start the grass turning green, bring out the buds on the trees, and start the flowers blooming. So it’s great. I love the rain.

Back to my nap…OK, I can’t stay in bed all day though anyway. I have tickets for the Wolves tonight and while I’m not a big basketball fan, it should be fun. Can’t beat free tickets right?

Oh, and as for Max and Beaux, well...I have a shuffle thing of pictures of mine going on my sidebar and that one popped up and it ws cute...they look like they are trying to convince you that they aren't naughty don't they??
