Rainy days

Rain rain... wonderful, magical rain.  And thus, rainy days have brought in the sweet lights.  Candles, tea lights and fairy lights are spreading tiny magical lights everywhere in the little white cottage...

...While shadows scurry away to the music of guitars playing on my cd player...     

And how do you spell joy?  And how can one make time stand still?  Make life forever be?  Days are so short, nights so cozy.  And when it rains, time pauses.  It is like a dying fire during one can stop whatever she's doing and just stand by a window for hours, watching the performance, an endless curtain of tears falling from heaven.  I so love rainy days...

...the kind of rain that becomes pleasurable to watch because it makes of your house a haven. The rooms in which one moves become a world apart from the wet streets, and the sodden garden. 

A rain like melting pearls...
a rain so beautiful it makes your home feels extra beautiful

There are also a hundred things I try chasing away on a rainy day too... melancholy sets in sometimes, and rain finds me thinking about gloomy things, and I can't even let myself think about anything anyway because that's when the birds make the loudest of ruckus outside and the crows' shouts are heard coming from the woods louder than ever and somewhere in my mind it's always raining a slow and endless drizzle.  Who can understand me?

Do you like rain?  Were you born, or married on a rainy day?  There's a French proverb that says "He who marries on a rainy day will be happy for the rest of his life."  It must be true, or part true.  The Fisherman and I were married on a rainy August day and we've been happily together for two worlds and a life and a half.  There's another proverb I'm remembering now, this one from the Bible, which says "A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike."  I certainly don't intent to be this kind of a rain ever... never.  And I never will ;)

I hope you are enjoying your day, wherever you are!  Rain, snow, or cold.


  1. Not so good, with rain...

    A lovely pre-Yule/Christmas snow, here, though.

    Wishing you candle light, and sparkles, and sugar plum dreams,
    Luna Crone

    1. Same to you Ms. Luna... from our little white cottage to yours...



  2. What a coincidence, it's raining here at this very moment too. A persistent pitter-patter that has not stopped since about noon and has caused me to get an earworm to the tune of "listen to the rhythm of the falling rain...." I'm ok with a bit of rain but we get nine months of it, so by this time of the year I'm longing for a break. How lovely and inviting your table looks! Candlelight and roses are the perfect combination.

  3. What a charmin atmosphere, my darling Cielo, thank you for sharing it with us, it's truly touching !

    Wishing you all my best for your Holiday Season, Sweetie,
    may it be Peaceful and Joy-filled as never before, to you and yours,
    with much love and gratitude

    Xx Dany
