Heard that in several parts of the country it's raining, raining, raining. In the city it can be miserable when it rains days on end. There is nowhere to go, but under a roof. Many living spaces are cramped. Lucky are you who live on the country side. At least you have space, and green to look at, in between the rain drops.
This is to give you a little sunshine. Once the sun will come back out again. And the rain will be forgotten, unless you'll live in the Northern regions of the globe. Then you look for a table in the shade, or for an umbrella to get away from the sun to eat lunch at a restaurant.
Or you will choose a shady place and sit in your lazy wicker chair to read a book. This tiny patio is on Balboa island, close to Laguna Beach, California. Click on the image to see the wonderful statue of the little girl. And the frog on a bench on the left.
Or, listen to an open air concert under a big umbrella/parasol.
I wish I had taken a pic of it in Shen-shen, which is on the mainland China's side of Hong Kong. The sun was shining so mercilessly that we bought a parasol, which made a difference of at least 20 degrees. Hubby gladly adopted the new custom, when he saw men unashamedly walking under a parasol.
And at the end of the day you gaze at a liquid fire sunset in the sky.
When it's raining we tend to miss these special things about the sunshine. I wonder if there are things you miss about the rain when the sun is beating down on you and the city is rationing water, you can't go anywhere without a bottle of water to drink, etc.
