I love the smell of rain. After living in Oregon for 6 years I can pretty accurately predict when it’s going to rain by the way the air smells.

It’s usually 100+ degrees in June in Phoenix, but thanks to today’s rain, the high was only in the 90s. It was cool and fresh outside first thing this morning with the world recently rinsed down courtesy of last night’s rainfall. It was a refreshing start to the day despite being really tired.

It’s been raining off and on for the last 24 hours – and it was wonderful. It never rained hard enough to cause troublesome flooding. It was just enough to wash down the world.

This afternoon I took Rosie for a walk and it was simultaneously sunny and raining. I loved it. Rosie loves it when it rains. She walks with her nose perpetually next to the ground taking in the post-rain smells. Rosie loved one section of the grounds so much she started rubbing her head against the ground. It’s so cute when she does that.

I hope we have more days like this.
