That's How Monday's Roll


Just a little word play since the thunder's rolling outside. I like an early morning thunderstorm, but I bet the people rushing to work right now might not agree.

Sharp lightening, I'm not a fan of, but the thunder sound is pretty amazing. I miss the rolling belly thunder from when we lived down south. Those were intense, complete storms, and I totally took them for granted.


I've got the windows on the backside of the house open, and it smells good when it's raining. We're overdue, so my flowers will be happy today. :)  Wishing you all a happy start to the new week.

I love it when it storming in the morning, and you're still curled up in bed! I also love the smell of rain - Happy Monday Xx

Janine Huldie said...

It is pouring right here now, too while I read blogs and the rest of my family are still sleeping. Definitely feels like a Monday morning to me!!

Rosey
Happy Day to a beautiful gal
Someone who's a beautiful pal
Happy day to a beautiful rain
Scorching heat can be a pain
Happy Day to your flowers outside
Smell so good and are your pride
My little brain still wants to rhyme
Cause over at Pat's I'd spent some time

Henrietta said...

It's going to rain here today as well. I love a good rain shower and even a strong storm if the weather doesn't turn severe. I especially love it when it rains at night. One of the best times is when it's really hot out and you can feel the rain in the air, I love that smell right before the rain breaks through :)
Happy Monday!

Jen said...

I love stormy weather, wish we had some right now haha.

Kristi Maloney said...

Stormy weather can be kinda fun once in a while. We actually haven't had many thunderstorms this summer - despite the humidity. Happy Monday! :)

alissa apel said...

The sounds are pretty cool! We need the rain to.

Pat Hatt said...

haha look at her go
Still plagued by my show
The thunder does roll here
Once in a while when it comes near

Mark Means said...

Hope you have a great Monday, as well. That's just another thing I love about Florida....the storms come and then go pretty quickly. Up in Kentucky, they'd linger for days and really make it dreary.

She's outta control!!!

I LOVE a good thunderstorm. Deep rumbling roar, splashy flashes of light, and huge overhead booms. They're exciting, and really get the adrenaline pumping, because they have a tinge of flirting-with-danger kinda feeling to them. I love when it hails, too. Delicate little pea-sized hail that bounces merrily, not those big ragged hunkers that make dents in the car.

We were at the beach recently and my husband had already gone down and camped out under the umbrella. The kids and I were going to join him when two sharp boom rang out. I thought they must have been sonic booms. Well, looked out and everyone was scurrying off the beach. It was a morning thunderstorm. I do love a good rain. I just have a healthy respect for lightening.

mail4rosey said...

It does feel good to snuggle down into the comforter on a rainy morning. :)

Sandee said...

We'll see rain about November or December if we are lucky. We could sure use some of that rain. I too love to watch it rain and hear the thunder roll through. Relaxing indeed.

Have a fabulous day. :)

Stephen Tremp said...

I love a great thunderstorm! I grew up in Michigan and we had some great ones. I really miss.them. Great writing weather!

ChatterBlossom said...

Thunderstorms can be wonderful. Plus, it is much easier to convince yourself to stay in and work when the sun isn't shining and beckoning you out! ;-)

I love the smell of rain and I LOVE thunder. For some reason I never get storms directly over my home but I can hear thunder in the distance when a storm rolls on through. I'd love to hear a boom so loud my house shakes but the thunder Gods like to keep a little dome over my house it seems.

stevebethere said...

We have just recently had the same in London I love the smell too, and It's such a relief after a hot spell it clears the air.

Have a thundertastic week ;-)

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I'm with you - I like the thunder but not the lightning! Summer thunderstorms are the best, especially when you're at home and can take a little cat nap. Nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of rain!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

This was timely! It's been storming like crazy here in Central Kentucky today :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

We have been having a bit of lightning and thunder these days Rosey. I don't mind it if it is not too bad. We welcome the thunder showers these days due to a bad drought. Now that we have purchased a truckload of water we are getting rain and more predicted this week! I have the habit of listening to the rain and keeping awake when I am in bed!:) Enjoy the rest of your Monday.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Thank you Rosey, for many things! 1. Telling Sandie about that awesome Giveaway site and linking us! 2. Being a great loyal follower and poster (one that posts often) 3. Being thankful for Thunderstorms. The other day I was on the phone with my 1dd and it started to rain here and I could SMELL the rain. I had to pause in our conversation and let her know I could smell the rain. She laughed and said, "You've always loved the smell of rain, Mom!" I am glad she knows that. Awh ~

We had thunder yesterday but today has been quiet so far.

Lanaya | Raising Reagan said...

I actually love a good thunderstorm. I'm kind of excited about Fall coming!! Yay!

Love the thunder

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

I love a good storm too and the smell of fresh rain. I don't like electrical storms in Summer, you just know that it's going to start deadly bush fires

My Journey With Candida said...

No storms here for a change. We have had a lot of rain this summer.

Kenya G. Johnson said...

I'm like a little kid and I don't like it. I'll be the first one sitting in a closet with no tornado warning in effect. We are expecting a week of that kind of weather.

Ai Sakura said...

it's a stormy morning over here too.. wish I was still snuggling in bed haha

Binky said...

A storm can be nice when you're safe and dry. And not out camping or hiking or something.

Brian Miller said...

nice..i love a good storm...the awesome power of it...the raw energy rippling...the smell in the air...i usually go stand on the porch...unless it gets too rough...smiles.

mail4rosey said...

I like that early morning time to read blogs too. :)

mail4rosey said...

She's awesome, but I instantly suspected she'd been over at Pat's, lol. ;)

Thank you for the lovely poem, Manzanita. :)

mail4rosey said...

Agreed, so long as it's not severe weather, and I don't have to drive in it, I'm all in too. :)

mail4rosey said...

I've been seeing the drought news for your state. :(

mail4rosey said...

We haven't either. It's been such a mild, mild, mild summer.

mail4rosey said...

I like that deep rumble, especially if everything else is quiet. :)

mail4rosey said...

I remember the come & go rains from your state very well. :)

mail4rosey said...

Hail does have that little element of surprise to it!! Always!

mail4rosey said...

I have that healthy respect for lightning too, definitely.

Sounds like you didn't even now your storm was coming!! Those can be tricky. ;)

mail4rosey said...

We've not had a lot of it this year so far, maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much. :)

Theresa said...

Glad you are enjoying the thunderstorm. I usually love them, but this summer has been the rainiest yet. Frankly, I am sick of the rain and thunderstorms. None of my flowers made it this year because the roots drowned from all the rain. $200 down the drain :(

mail4rosey said...

It's still raining...15 hours later. It's not bothering me a bit though, and the thunder stopped long ago.

mail4rosey said...

Agreed, I've been spending far too much time outside lately, I needed today to regroup (though we did end up going out in the car at one point anyway).

Chatty Crone said...

Well we have been having rain daily - which I appreciate - but we could send some to you if needed - lol!

Carole said...

we are well into variable spring weather here now - at least it is gradually getting lighter each morning. Cheers

Suzan Sweatman said...

I love a rain storm too - there's nothing like the smell - but I could do without the noises - they scare me lol -
And I won't be able to leave doors open now because of the freaking squirrels that want to move into our place!!!!!!!!
XOXO

Masshole Mommy said...

I love a good thunderstorm, too, but I have to say that the ones that roll through in the middle of the night annoy me. Once I'm up, I'm awake for hours.

mail4rosey said...

It's finally cleared up here. It rained all day yesterday and into the night.

mail4rosey said...

It does sometimes clear the air! And I love London in the rain, cold, sun... I'm not picky. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Cat naps are the best!! Rain or no rain. ;)

mail4rosey said...

All the neighboring states seem to be getting it right now. It's nice if it doesn't get muggy afterwards (which it didn't here).

mail4rosey said...

It lulls me to sleep if I'm in bed. I think it's nice to read with it raining. :)

mail4rosey said...

That is sweet that your daughter knows that about you. :)

And you're welcome for the help w/the site.

As for the visits, I like those, your blog's fun. I'm headed over now. :)

mail4rosey said...

I think we've gotta clear day here today too. :)

mail4rosey said...

Your enthusiasm is nice, but not contagious (said the I LOVE SUMMER GAL). ;)

mail4rosey said...

Def. something to enjoy on occasion. :)

mail4rosey said...

Lightning storms are downright scary. I've been stuck in the car driving before with one going on and it's not something I care to repeat, ever.

mail4rosey said...

We didn't have near enough, but it wasn't hot either, so healthy balance?

mail4rosey said...

Sounds like a closet party over at your place. :) Stay safe. :)

mail4rosey said...

I wish I'd have gotten up earlier today!! SO much to do, I know this day's gonna fly right by. Happy Tuesday to you!

mail4rosey said...

Agreed, there's a time and place. :)

mail4rosey said...

I used to go out to the porch w/my grandparents sometimes when a storm rolled in. Totally forgot about that until now. :)

mail4rosey said...

You're so close I thought our weather would be similar. We haven't gotten a lot of rain though. I'm sorry about your flowers.

I've got squirrels messing mine up. They're eating the m mulch and tearing the fabric up (allowing weeds to break through).

mail4rosey said...

We got it all day yesterday (and I mean all day and into the night too), so we're good. ;)

mail4rosey said...

We're fast approaching Fall. The leaves are even starting to change.

mail4rosey said...

hahahahahahhahahahahahhahahaaahaha
I'm still thinking of your post today... oh it's not funny, I know. I'd be a mess. But I can't help laughing.

mail4rosey said...

I don't sleep a ton but when I do it's like a rock. :)

RACHEL TaoOfPoop said...

Lovely! I almost feel there with you, and I'm glad.

Maria said...

oh, i love thunderstorms. there's something calming about them. the one we had this morning woke piper right up! :) i hope the week is treating you well, my friend! thank you for your always sweet and *brighten my day up* words!! :)
xoxox

mail4rosey said...

It was a nice way to start the morning. :)

mail4rosey said...

Awww, I hate when they get startled when they're little!! Little sweet babies. :) And oh my gosh, your posts, Maria. I always have to bring a box of tissues when I come to visit, lol.

Brandy said...

It almost feels like Fall most days here in NH. It's warm, the sunshine is for sure hot enough to swim but it carries this Fall like crisp breeze. The nights have been cold enough where I am feeling shivery!

Colette S said...

I love rain too but not the slashing lightnings :)

And I love seeing how everything becomes refreshed after a storm.

~ Noelle said...

i can not wait till it cools down (it did today, but we were outside) to open the windows...we could not do it in the apartment :)

mail4rosey said...

It's coldie here too. We had two hot weeks all summer. I've never seen anything like it.

mail4rosey said...

I'm not a fan of lightning either. You're right things do look nice, and refreshed after a storm. :)

mail4rosey said...

Hurrah, another perk of your new home. :)

It's freezing here...like toes cold, must have slippers cold. :)
