It rained yesterday afternoon and is still raining this morning. And after months in California the rain feels luxurious.
Probably an inconvenience to the city people but joyous to us out here in the country. It has not rained since I returned to the farm. The harvest is a few weeks off yet and no hay on the ground.
So rain is good.
Rainy day cat.
All the wild gardens opened their leafy hands to the big gulps of wet rain and just inhaled.
Everything in the garden breathed in and the newly trimmed bushes did not look so sad anymore.
Pumpkin bread from earlier in the week.
BooBoo hides under the bed from the thunder.
Sunrise was at 7.04 AM. Sunset will be 6.19pm. The high will be 65f a low of 40f and rain off and on all day.
And then the sunrise burst through the rain clouds and everything went golden just for a moment.

Have a wonderful day!
🕰 Want to go back in time? Here is the Farmy on a October 12th, 2011.
2011!!! A different world.
We have been at this sustainable thing a long time, you and I!
I could go on! But I need to get ready for my mornings teaching. Teaching in my socks!
We have the cool nights, but still no rain in sight and daytime temps into the 70’s. This is NOT normal for us. I have been taking stock around my small apartment, finding ways to slowly make changes as I can. So much is interconnected to things I have no control over so I slowly focus where I can. Enjoy your golden day!
It is great to take stock. I do like small spaces. So much easier to manage.
I envy you your rain. We have had sunny day after sunny day after sunny day here, very little rain, and as a native Oregonian, I miss it. Our mountain, Mt. Hood, has a top as bare as a baby’s bottom. Sigh. I’m sure come January I’ll be longing for these sunny days but for now I’ll gaze at your lovely photos longingly.
That picture of rain on the windowpane is so peaceful to look at. It reminded me of Windowswap, a website that an imaginative couple started during the lockdowns — asking people to send in little clips of the view from their windows. So even though we were all cooped up, we could get a little change of scene. I have one from South Korea bookmarked in my favourites: https://www.window-swap.com/Window/616680036
Your tutoring sounds interesting, and how nice to be able to teach from home. What are you teaching?
Oh I think I remember something of that website! How lovely. I will pop over s d check out your favorite. Thank you!!
Oh I thought I had replied to this. I am teaching reading! To kids who got a bit behind during the pandemic.
How lovely! I can imagine it’s very rewarding to see them make progress 🙂
Oh! LOOK AT ALL THAT GOLDENNESS!!! Yes, please!!!! I’ll have that with my cuppa coffee, thank you. Glorious.
It was an amazing hit of golden morning light. A natural filter! Good afternoon!
Good afternoon, lovely you. It’s wine time over here! Cin cin!
Straight back at ya!
Rain is indeed golden! It’s priceless! Love your photos- especially the golden cat! Have a lovely day! xoxo
You too, Kathe!
Anything you can do in socks must mean it will be a lovely day since I did not have to wear shoes. 😃
Shoes have never been a comfort zone for me.
Good evening, gorgeous c.
Create Resilient Sustainable Spaces: now that the greenhouse is empty of summer, I’m drying laundry in there. Dries without a lick of electricity.
That is a perfect result.
We don’t even have a dryer out here either! Love that you are using the greenhouse for laundry!
Just popped over to your blog – could not comment as usual – but I missed your words! Shame on me for not visiting more often!
Odd that you cannot comment.
Wow – 2011 really was a different world! Your pumpkin bread looks delicious and I meant to say, last week, great to see Ton Ton again.
Yes! Ton is back! Deaf as a post but happy to be home I think.
Oh, bless him! I bet he missed you.
Ton is everyone’s dog. He is more attached to his stock than to people. And he is so deaf that he gets frights when people arrive close to him all of a sudden. Poor old fellow. So if Tom is inside he stays close to the ( unlit so far) fireplace where there is not traffic. Boo on the other hand does not let me out of his sight. He dogs my every step. Literally.
Ton is like the old dog now and Boo is all grown up.
Yes. And still the old dog hates the grown up dog. Not very grown up behavior!
Oh dear – ROFL!
Did the elder old dog hate (resent might be better…) Ton?
Ton has always resented Boo. Growls at him all the time. Boo on the other hand runs by blissfully unaware.
Love your rainy day kitty 🙂
I just popped over to your blog for a read! Definitely worth the visit but now I feel haunted!
🙂 Thanks so much for stopping over! I appreciate the visit!
Rain… Just looking at the pictures and I can smell it. We’ve been getting a lot, it’s the start of storm season here, but so far we’ve been lucky enough to avoid the big flooding they’ve had down south. Time to collect the eggs and later on, plant some tomatoes. Have a great day, Miss C.
You are planting tomatoes and we are planting greens. In the greenhouse. I hope you have a good growing season!
I don’t think we’ll be short of rain, but the humidity will be the killer. I envy you your cold season greens, I can’t grow them here.
Hmm. Yes. I would be sad without greens.
I will trade weather with you, 95 degrees today, no rain since September 24.
That is still so hot. What state are you in?
Howdy! I’m in Texas. Central Texas to be exact, about 50 miles South of DFW.
I love this post. It’s so peaceful. I just got back from my trip to Portland yesterday and am needing extra rest since I’m back up to high altitude. We are a lovely 48 degrees going to a high of 73 today. Next week will be cooler. Phoenix was too warm for me as was Portland. The beach, heavenly. I love rainy, cold days. A little sunshine in between is like a promise.
