I'ts raining, it's pouring
The old woman is snoring
She drank her tea and went fast asleep
And didn't wake up until morning
My friend, Dotti, who I share our collaborative blog with, Focusing On Life, have never met in person, but will come October when we are both attending Camp Oasis, sent me a wonderful box filled with the most delightful aromas when opened. It was loaded with teas, all kinds, but one tin was filled with what Dotti says is the remedy for all sleep problems chamomile with lemon. Now I have mentioned my sleep issues before, more than once unfortunately and I will welcome any and all gifts especially if it involves a good night's sleep. So....last night prior to bed, I made myself a "cuppa" chamomile tea with lemon, smelled delightful, tasted divine, didn't even have to add sugar it was so heavenly. Now will it help me sleep? I didn't fall asleep immediately, I have to admit, but after my nightly "sit and rock" on the back porch I crawled back into bed and lo and behold fell fast asleep and didn't wake up until I heard the sound of rain early this morning. I have been doubly blessed this morning, a good night's sleep and rain. Wow a twofer. That chamomile tea is magic!! Thanks again, Dotti.
Walking out to the backyard after the rain had stopped my flowers were smiling and I could almost hear them giggling they were so happy to feel the rain and drink in the moisture. I can give them water from the hose each day, but there is something about rain from above that gives what they need to be happy.
The hydrangeas are blooming again.
Even the monarda which is almost spent, appreciated the rain..
And my entry for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday, outdoors is the theme...sunflowers in the summer time, love them!!
"Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby"
Until next time....
