rainy friday

the rain began yesterday afternoon.

it falls so hard here,
i thought the noise was a chipmunk chewing
on the cardboard boxes i'd left outside.

it hit the leaves in my little overgrown garden
with a happy little slap-slap-slap sound
and i ran to open all the windows
and let the fresh air in.

the rain continues today,
like a vancouver welcome
to my new town.

i feel so at home.

this weekend,
paul & i finally get to spend a day together (!!)
...we're going to walk around downtown guelph...
and on sunday,
we're heading to the niagra region
with paul's school friends
to do a little wine tasting.

i am half hoping the rain clears up by then...
but really,
i wouldn't mind if it stayed around for awhile longer.

  2. There can be something so fun and romanic about rain and it can even be cozy if you can be inside listening to it...I miss that living in LA!
