Drizzle Drizzle go away....

Drizzle Drizzle go away... I want some sunny bright day Good morning from this side of the planet. It's 11:05 AM here and I am done with all the sessions at the work. That's all for the work at the school for today. Had three back to back sessions since 8 AM with few minutes of break in between to stretch and move my joints. It's another gloomy day. It's been drizzling and light showers since Monday evening except the couple of hours that sun came out yesterday. And this non stop drizzling, dark clouds and wet cold days are now getting on to my nerves . Having such weather in a row for few days can really pull down the energy level. And the sudden steep drop in temperature has made many younger ones fall sick. There were quite a few absent in the Montessori class. And my child in the session kept yawning with his worksheet. Oh! Yawning is infectious and I didn't want to catch up that. . So, I did some bit of brain gym and fun clapping exercises with him..That helped and he was good with the worksheet afterwards I have to wait for my colleague to go back home. I got a ride in her car in the morning. It was raining in the morning and I didn't want to walk to work. And neither did I want to take my car. So, I called her to pick me on her way. I do that quite often as she comes from a little far and brings her vehicle every day. It's her two wheeler on sunny days and her car when it's raining or rain is expected. Well, she works in the Montessori environment and that gets over at 12:30. She needs some more time to clear up stuff and get the class ready for next day. She can not leave before that. So, it should be another two hours of wait. I don't mind that. I would do some bit of mylotting in the first half while munching on my crunchy apple and do prepare some worksheets for later use for an hour. Got this picture from Google reminding me of this day two years back. Well, this bouquet of roses uplifted my mood on this gloomy day. It's gorgeous . I might have posted it earlier but it's beautiful enough to be shared again and again I am happy that this rose plant survived in my garden while a few gave up to the excessive heavy rain. I have trimmed it and it's left with very few leaves. I did notice a bud this morning. I hope to see such blooms in plenty again Have a good time in your mylot corner

It has been sprinkling here all day and is supposed to storm later... I'd rather not have the storms but Mother Nature doesn't ask my opinion on the weather. *shrug* At least the prediction for in the morning is no longer for freezing temps by the time the sun rises. That's always good. I hope you have a good rest of your day.

I wish that mother Nature would be listening to us. But then we didn't listen to her despite all the signals she kept giving us. I hope that the storm didn't come as predicted. Or even if it came, it was not harsh. Hope all is well after that. We did get some good sunshine here today though the wind was chill..It was pleasant today

@arunima25 I'm glad you got some sunshine. It finally stopped raining here and the sun is partly out. Still lots of clouds, though.

Flowers just uplift our mood. Isn't it. I love to walk around my garden in the morning and meet the lovely blooms. I love that to start my day

@cherigucchi I can understand. I too stay in apartment in a overcrowded city. I try to accommodate as many as possible pots in my balconies and a little terrace.

@arunima25 I am sorry to hear that you lost some varieties of roses, due to heavy rains. It takes time for a rose plant to stabilize and grow. I hope that weather is fine now. I have been keeping busy, therefore, I remain absent from here.

@dpk262006 Good to see you. Well, being busy in offline life is a blessing . Roses need a lot of care or else they throw lots of tantrums . I replaced the roses with few more varieties of hibiscus. They are hardy and easy going plants. They are doing well so far.

Hi, good to see you after so long . It's been gloomy since Monday evening and yesterday was the worst with some heavy showers too. Today we got up to another wet morning but by 10 AM sun came out. I am back from work and one load is in washing machine. I hope it stays sunny for the clothes to dry. I lost a few varieties of beautiful roses due to excessive rain in the last two years.

The Rose plant looks wonderful! The only flowers we see these days is in the society park. But not sure how they would do in late December and January period. Rains seem good sometimes but not something that goes on for days and days. Plus no or less sunshine for many days is also a dampener. Just hoping that you would get good sunshine in the coming days.

@arunima25 Well, let us hope that some nice interactions here make you feel coming back here again and again. Being in the good sunshine always helps. Our previous place, being at more height used to get more sunshine. This place doesn't gets good sunshine but the advantage with the lower height is we can go out more quickly and not have to rely on the lift much. Well, there is always a trade off in life. I spent a good time on 3 sites yesterday after a long time. Not likely to have that for the next few weekends. A busy work week follows along with a few medical checkups. Well, now time to end my "over-jealous" blabbering!!

@arunima25 I have to try that out. With me having already so many website logins, another one looks an excess. Balancing so many becomes tough.

@arunima25 We still have wonderful sunny days and still no rain. At least the humidity of the night is helping the trees and bushes.

Oh! Anna, I wish Nature would listen to us..I would have sent some rainy days there. We had a lot of them and that can be annoying.. Today it was perfect winter day. It was chilly winds but a bright sunny day. It was good to see the sun first time since Monday. Keeping fingers crossed that I will get such beautiful blooms again on this plant.

@LadyDuck Good to know. The weekend was a sunny one. I soaked myself fully in sun. I did some reading ( The Absorbent mind by Maria Montessori) while sitting in sun for hours together. Today I took nap in the sun in the afternoon. I made a bed on the floor of the guest room. Opened the balcony door and we get some good afternoon sunlight there. It felt so good..I could be here this weekend but then I chose to read and take nap in the sun. Sometimes I don't get the motivation to be here.

I hate it too.. just makes me lazy and unproductive. And in the last two years we have got many such gloomy days in a row. Today was bright sunny with chilly wind...a perfect winter day. We were happy to have sun after four days.

We get too many rainy days here. Even I love rain but then too many gloomy days in a row can be annoying. It was a sunny bright Saturday today and that makes me happy.

Do you need rain? If I could, I would have sent some of these gloomy days there. Glad that today was a bright sunny day after so many days. It was chill too. But I like days that are chill but have good bright sun.. That's perfect winter for her.
