Summer rain

There is something about a rare long slow summer rain that calms me.  I enjoy sitting on the back porch and listening to the drops as they hit the metal roof and slide down to water the grass and plants.  Speaking of plants and water, they are my favorite things to photograph. Just something about water on a green leaf fascinates me.  The different shades of green, the textures, the goodness that water is doing to the plant.

Dear blog -- I'm bringing you back to life.

After years away from this blog I wasn't even sure it still existed.  Well, it does so I'm bringing it back to life.  I always enjoyed it.  I have been thinking a lot lately about getting back around to some of the things I enjoy doing.

I had started riding my bike again then we had a heat wave as I was training for a short benefit ride for Renewal Ranch ( ).  I was easily riding 30 miles and had signed up for that course.  For some strange reason of all days my legs cramped and it was both legs front and back, top and bottom but I made it over that last hill and rolled through the finish.

Early this morning I went on a photo walk.  I used to love doing these.  You grab your camera and head off some place then get out and walk and just really take it all in and photograph things.

It was fun reading back in the early post of 2005 and the things going on.  This was 11 years ago and there was one Thanksgiving post were I "got in a quick 50 mile ride today".  I keep telling myself I really need to get this belly off so I think I'll stop writing and go for a ride!

Life is good.
