I was just beginning supper preparation a couple days ago when a torrent of rain, compliments of Ike, commanded my attention. Florida thunder storms are marvelous things if you're snug in your home (as I was) and lucky enough to have a covered porch (I do) to sit on and enjoy the show. I love the sound the rain makes streaming off our roof so fast that it spills over the gutters in sheets to the ground.
All the chopping and cooking would have to wait while I grabbed a glass and sat down to toast the splendor and give thanks for the joy. What sights and sounds surprise you with joy?
