5 Rainy Friday & Me

Friday I got up to the sound of rain hitting gently against my window. Stretching I send my praises to the Divine for another day and peer outside from my bed and sure enough it was pouring, not a gentle patter but a steady drenching down pour. I figured the time it would take me to shower and get ready for work the rain would have subsided a little long enough for me to get to the bus stop, no such luck. The rain kept up its steady pace and I had no other choice but to walk through it. I put on my rain cap-the only shield pitiful as it was and sprinted to the bus stop. I managed to reach to work on time dispite the delays along the way.
Looking out my colleagues office window I take a look and some pictures as the day turns cloudy and grey. Through it all I see beauty in as everything gets a good washing and looks shiny spanking new. Delighted that the rain would ease the oppressive sweltering heat of the pass few days I work through my morning maintain a neat desk as I prepare to leave at 1pm for my appointment with my sister. I didn't leave the office till 1:30 pm and I was rushing to the elevator as my cellphone rings signalling my sister's impatience at having to wait for me.

I made a mad dash to the elevator, boarded and stood there waiting expectatly for its decend, nothing..., I begin to wonder, 'Oh Lord, is the elevator stuck?' I took a deep breath, told myself to not panick and looked at the panel, noting was lite, the maching is awaiting my instructions via pushing the button! I didn't push the ground floor lobby...duh! I just laughted at myself as the door opened and a couple of my colleagues boarded and we decended to the lobby.

It was still raining and the afternoon seemed more like 6 pm due to the cloudiness. I jumped into my sister's van and off we went to our appointment, catching up on our day and week we laughed, talked as I visually recorded with my camera the cloudy evening.

  2. Thank you.The narration was so nice that I got the feeling of having personally experienced the rainy and cloudy day and waiting in the elevator without pushing on the button.The pictures reflect the mood of the sky very well

  3. It sure seemed like a real cloudy day....I love rainy fridays, its a great way to end the weekend. I can always go home, have some hot soup and cuddle on the couch -:)

  4. Hello:)

    Wonderful to read about rains in your place and it was interesting to read a slice of your rainy day. After all that is said about rain, we somehow manage to do our days chores pleasant and unpleasant. I can see you had a harrowing and well as a wonderful time.

    Here rains have started in good earnest and sometimes it rains for three days at a time. I hardly go out unless there is a necessity. All these days FIFA foot ball matches kept me very busy. Now that the matches are over, I wonder what will be my next source of entertainment.

    The photos are lovely.

    Best wishes:)
