I woke up this morning to the patter of raindrops on my roof. It has been drizzling all day.
It all started yesterday. As I have said I am an early riser. When I went out on the patio just as dawn was breaking, over on the east the horizon appeared to be ablaze. Thick clouds covered the sky and as the sun moved toward the curve of the earth, it set the underside of the clouds on fire. The light reflected down brightening the morning. I traced the prismatic progression across the sky to the west. The clouds went from orange to peach to pink to violet. I marveled at the beauty of it. Then, what to my wandering eyes should appear but a rainbow almost directly overhead! I gazed at it in awe until the sun moved up enough for it to fade away. It became darker out at the same time so I looked back to the east to see the sun had risen high enough to be above the clouds. The morning was ushering in a dreary, rainy day. It had started with a bang.
I am having a hard time adjusting to the time change. I always do. I had forgotten the time was going to change. When I woke up Sunday morning, I wondered why I was waking up so early. When I went into my living room, I saw the clock there said was an hour later than the one in the bedroom. It took a second, then it dawned on me about the time change. My bedroom clock automatically resets. I will have to go change the clock in my car before it causes a problem. In spring a few years ago, I was an hour late to work because I forgot to reset the clock in my car.
We are having a lot of rain this year. I hope it means we will have lots of blooms come spring.
I hope you’re right about the rain. At least we’re having a bit more fall colors this year, since the summer didn’t kill all the leaves before the season change. I liked your description of the beginning of the day.
