After way too long without a decent rain it is ---raining. Slow and steady, a perfect September rain. It took it all day to get it going, but about 10:30 tonight we could hear the gentle, sweet sound of the steady rain. No starts and stops, no gushes--just slow and steady. Washing the dust off the trees, plants and house. Slowly soaking into the ground. Watering the fruit, veggies, herbs---and, oh yes, that god that is worshiped in the cities of America, the lawn. The air coming in the window is fresh and sweet, refreshing. I will sleep much better night than the nights we have had to run the A/C. (Country girls just have to have fresh air!!)

For this we say, "Thank you God".
