The Rainy Saturday

The Rainy Saturday March 10, 2012

Onions were picked from the garden,

The pot of Saturday soup is on,

the scraps sent to the compost heap,Ready for the Compost Pileand I am ready for a rainy day of writing and thinking.

I know families with young children and those with recreational and sports activities planned do dread rainy Saturdays.  At this point in my life, I treasure them.  I love the sound of the rain.  I know each drop nourishes the soil, and is so much better than chlorinated tap water for the plants.  I set all the houseplants out to get a deep drenching from this life-giving moisture.  A week from now, or even less, roses will be blooming all over the place, alive and ready to bless the world with color.

It’s a day for creativity and soul refreshment. I am privileged to be able to savor this.
