My View, Vol. 1

Julie over at The Corner with a View started a new link-up which is more visual and less wordy for Saturdays. Since I do want to blog more often (but sometimes am stumped for topics), this will be something fun to do.

This is my view for the day... well, the past two days.

It doesn't seem like much but it is. "It's a tree... from the second floor. What's the big whoop?" you may be asking yourself. Well, look at it again. See the flooding around the tree? That's from the two storms we've been having in L.A. You can even see the raindrops falling into the puddles around the edges of the tree. Since we've been having a severe drought this year, the rain is actually a welcomed sight.

I love the rain. I love the sight, sound, and smell of it. Sometimes I think I should move to Seattle (cue my Seattle friends renewed their campaign to get me to move up there). With my anxiety being a little on the crazy side lately, the sound of the rain has been wonderful as it has helped relax me.

My view may be limited (and, really, done on purpose as I don't want people to know where I live) this weekend, but at least it's one that I am thoroughly enjoying. Btw, if you're following me on Instagram, you can find a video I recorded of yesterday's downpour. :D

And that's all for now. I think I'm going to make myself blog all throughout Lent so expect to see more blog posts popping up during the month. ;)

As always, thanks for reading and God bless! :D

I love the sound of rain too... so calming. I hope you aren't badly affected by any flooding!
I found you through Julie's link up at the corner with a view.
Have a good lent!

I love this!! The sound of rain is one of my favorites - I set Grace's sound machine to it too, even though the next two days should be our own thunderstorms.

Thanks for joining me!
