I'm not quite sure why I always think of summer as relaxing. Because the reality is that it is not. I'm just as busy during the summer, except there is a daily routine.
But last evening it rained, so I didn't have to water the garden. Love that nature did it for me! That gave me the opportunity to change my attention to something more relaxing, binding. As everyone went to bed, I sat and listened to it rain. I don't believe there is anything more refreshing than the sound of rain, especially when it has been so dry.
