Rainy Tuesday

Well, it's my favourite weather today - rain!  And yes, I am serious! [can't you see my serious face?].  I really love the rain - blowy, blustery, wet and wonderful, misty and delicate, torrential - however it comes it feels GOOD.  I like the moisture, the sound, the delicious scent of the air once it's been well-washed, the strange light in the sky before it breaks open and even the crashing of a midnight lightning strike!  I am blessed to live with protected parkland for my backyard neighbour and it's wonderful the way the critters respond to the weather.  It's fun to see who comes out and who goes into their den, who flicks their fur/feathers/tail and gets on with business while another creature cannot be found for love nor money if there's any type of precipitation in the air at all!  In honour of this wild wetness, I am showing you two tangles today - LEAU and AGUA.  I used them in my ZIA here, and this is only the second time I've shown original tangle patterns.  I hope you like them!
Happy Tuesday!

  1. Love them, Christina! Rain can be wonderfully refreshing... when it's the right type. Down here (Texas Gulf Coast) we tend to get either absolute downpours where you can't see across the street or nothing. Right now, we're in a drought. Ugh. But on those rare times when we get a nice steady medium rain (well, medium for us), I agree with you. I especially love sleeping during non-thunderstorm-rain.
