Listening to the rhythm of the falling rain...

I am a summer person, I like clear blue skies & bright sunlight.
but,
There is something about~

* The cloudy skies.

* Raindrops on green leaves.
* Eating hot charcoal-roasted corn smeared with lemon & salt.
* School children in colourful raincoats waiting for their school buses.
* Jumping into muddy puddles.
* Making paper boats & sailing them off in small streams of rainwater.
* Having hot onion pakoras with ginger chai.
* Sleeping in warm bed while listening to the thunder outside.
* Drinking endless cups of tea.
I just finished my hot cup of coffee and I plan to bake away while it steadily rains outside.
Have a great rainy day!

I am a total rain fan! In fact, it's my favourite weather pretty much. Although I do like Sunny days too - preferably not too hot though!
