Feeling stressed lately? Turn your speaker volume way up, press play, and take a few deep breaths.
Ahhh. Much better, right? :)
We've been having lots of rain lately. It makes for cold, cloudy, damp days leading me to believe I've been magically transported from rural Missouri to London town. The guineas don't seem to mind; the chickens don't either unless it's a torrential downpour. Duchess has shelter she can take from the rain, but she refuses.
I've noticed that my mood is definitely affected after several dark, gloomy days in a row. The only upside to all the rain is that we have several creeks that get full and produce loud mini-waterfalls as the runoff makes its way over the rocks and debris.
After I got home from work yesterday I went out to the creek and just listened. It's amazing how the sound of running water can calm you down and give you a sense of peace. Sometimes it's the little things, right?
