I celebrated by doing a bit of dancing in the rain.
I would have danced longer (and made a bit more exuberant noises), but I was at work... shhh... don't tell anyone that I was dancing while I was meant to be working.
Since this morning I have been inhaling deeply the sweet smell of the desert when it rains. I had almost forgotten how intoxicating it can be as it's been ages since the last rain. Hopefully we will not go quite a long without this much needed rejuvenation.
My doors are wide open and the sound and smells of rain are permeating this house. A hot cup of tea and a warm blanket are all I need right now. I am satisfied.
