go barefoot in the rain more...

the other day i found myself unexpectedly alone.  that doesn't happen too often these days, now that school is out.  i pondered my possible activities for a few minutes.  it was such a beautiful, sunny day.  and we have a new umbrella for our deck - something i've wanted for a while, but it was never quite in the budget (never mind that it has a large pepsi logo on it - it was practically free).  so i gathered up some supplies and a large icy drink and my journal with just a few pages left.  i spent three blissful hours out there.  writing.  splashing paint around.  thinking.  enjoying the warmth and the shade from my umbrella simultaneously.
  and i thought...
i should do this more.


  1. love the title of this post. gave me chills just thinking happy thoughts about being carefree in the rain

  2. I treasure days/hours of solitude... what a perfect way to spend yours!
    Great image and wonderful words - I hope you get to do more of the things you love :) x

  3. I want to splash in paint! This makes me smile~ And was your icy drink Iced Coffee?! I am glad your soul had a chance to relax and embrace your muse!
