Rainy Days

It's been raining all day.  And when you live in Sydney, can't help but appreciate the rain because it doesn't come very often. I'm really not exaggerating. I have been living here for nearly 17 years and I'm really not making this up.

I wonder why people could say that they hated the rain. Okay, it can be inconvenient, especially for someone who doesn't drive, like myself. But I don't mind it at all. I like how rain makes you feel like you want to stay indoors, reading a good book and having a nice cuppa.

I also like the smell that lingers after the rain stops. That muddy, earthy smell that many people say they can't stand...I actually love it.

I like walking in the rain (I know this sounds like a line from a movie...). Of course I need an umbrella, but walking in the rain and listening to my iPod is one of the best things to do when I need to relax.

One rainy day like this could change everything. The plants, their brownish tinge will disappear and you can see green everywhere. Of course this only lasts for a few days, before the continuous harsh Australian sun dries them up again.
