sunset 051416

The sun made a brief appearance at the end of the day, having been hidden behind storm clouds for most of this rainy Saturday.

I finally got around to washing the front porch this morning when I heard thunder and felt rain drops as I finished up the stairs. Four baby birds sitting in the nest by the front door, along with the two parents, made quite the mess. But soon the baby birds will fly away as they outgrow their little nest.

With the two large rattan patio chairs moved to the front of the porch, I was able to enjoy my bowl of carrot coriander soup for dinner as I watched the rain this evening. It is moments like these where I stop to appreciate and cherish the quiet after a rather tumultuous past week.
