Not So Wordless Late Wednesday: After The Rain...

We get plenty of rain here lately. One whole week of rain and more rain from late evenings throughout the nights then stops almost immediately at pre-dawns only to lash hard again at dawn, continuing until mid-mornings. Everyday now. Normally by 10 to 11 am, the sun will creep playfully behind the clouds and assuring us it'll stay that way till noon, giving us more than ample time to dry the laundry. Thus, leaving home for other matters must be done quickly because you can never trust the weather now, you know.

Once upon a time, the rain used to make me worry for nothing. Now that I see the rain in a different perspective I'm always game for some adventures...like the nature walk I take in the mornings just after the rain...

 Now, now...

 ..wordless for a minute there...hehehe!

 well, well, well...what have we got here? let's check below...

 Subhanallah...a busy bee upclosed

 When I took this picture, I burst into singing Dido's song "White Flag"
Hahaha..tak sesuwai langsung! ;)

'Swimming pool' at the backyard of my cousin, Puteri's house - a five-minute's drive from mine
Ooooo...I love this scenery, it makes me want to cry!
 
How's the weather in your place, guys? ;-)

Hi Lili, you see things that others don't....and yes, nature provides us beauty in the rain, the rainbow, clouds.....
But people in their hurry to worship money fail to pause and enjoy what you do.

For us here, 24 years....Fall or autumn has never failed to fascinate even surprise me with the myriad of colours....right now the trees turning yellows....soon orange, red and good....

And with the coming soon of the North Winds bringing the first wake up up cold winds,
We have the sparkling cold winter snows.

People who pause in life to see nature live better lives.
Have a nice day, and keep a song in your heart.
Lee.

couldn't agree more with Sifu Lee. i started to 'pause' in my thirties and life has been more meaningful ever since.

Aunty Lili,
Ewah! Walk walk find the flowers and the bees ye? I notice orang sini, pi kedai 1 block away pun nak drive. Kita dulu jalan kaki je pi kerja pun. Ataupun sbb ramai benar yang menegur dengan soalan lazim such as "jalan kaki ke?" Letih kan? purrr...meow!

Hi Lee!

Wow, thanks for the beautiful comment! Well, you know my email address, so what say you if you sent me some of your gorgeous fall scenery? Hehehe))

Thank you! ;)

Lili said...

Noir,

Lee sure has way with words!~hehehe!
Yeah, sometimes when you have too much time in your hands,(BBPJ, haha) nothing kills the hours than appreciating what little things life has to offer...masyaAllah.

Cheers too! Wan of the Wans, hiks! ;)

Angelina,

Me walk walk find many things like a a monitor lizard which scared the hell out of me! Of course, the flowers, the birds and the bees, oops! ;)

Walking by the beach would take me about thirty minutes to Puteri's but it is pretty quiet around the area. Takut! By the main road, well, it's out of the question..haha..maybe 45mins could not guarantee! A drive to her place 6km down the road is less tiring, perhaps. Anyway, I love walking! ;)

CS,

LOL walk walk find solace would be apt! ;)
