Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 395 – Weather Alert


Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”

John Ruskin

Thank you, Spidey, for helping me with another great quote!

Yes, yes, I am late again, but I was too tired to write the post last night!

So, where was I? Ah, yes, the weather…

As I sit here typing, the rain is beating a merry rhythm on my study window.

I won’t complain. After the extreme heat of the summer, the grass needs as much of a soaking as it can get, and I much prefer my garden to look lush and green, rather than scorched and yellow as straw.

It’s easy to get grumpy about the weather, isn’t it? For some, nothing is right.

The rain is too wet

The wind is too blowy

The sun is too hot

The snow is too cold

But, sometimes it is good to try and find that silver lining.

The rain is nourishing our plants and wildlife and refilling our reservoirs.

The wind is giving everyone a little shake-up to remind you to sweep up those leaves later.

The sun is giving your that dose of Vitamin D that some of us really need, and warming our souls.

The snow lets us cosy up with our loved ones and enjoy just being together.

Before anyone says it, yes, extreme weather is something different. Hurricanes, heavy storms, heatwaves; they aren’t fun, and not for the faint-hearted…

I think that even though some weather may make me sigh, disheartened, because the rain cancelled plans, or the heat is too much for what we wanted to do, there is still always something positive about it all.

I don’t even have a favourite kind of weather, or season, because each kind brings something positive, with it.

So, tell me, what is your favourite season?


Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

    It’s all about the silver lining. I love summer, but my favorite season is fall, watching the beautiful colors.

    Ritu, as I am living through the most severe drought in California history, I miss the rainy season I experienced growing up in Seattle, and I truly believe there is a way to “harvest” the rain up north and utilize it better – instead of wasting billions on project that won’t matter when we have no water at all…

      After having our short heatwave, with the threat of no water, these thoughts crossed my mind too, John.
      We were without water for a couple of days, and that was hard enough.
      Here, there are leajs and issues that could be fixed, which would help initially.
      I feel for you all and hope things let up for you all quickly, my friend 💛🙏🏼

    From out her swaddling clothes of fog and mist:
    damp and icy from her winter’s lair –
    Spring emerges, waiting to be kissed
    by Zephyr’s breezes: fresh and clean and fair.
    She dreams of lush, green pasture land
    of dazzling, blinding golden fields,
    touched by Midas’ magic hand?
    Of second season’s bounteous yield.
    Each day she smiles, content, serene –
    notes with pride a burgeoning paradise,
    missing not one miracle of green,
    nor all the countless joys of nature’s life.
    Joy xx

    I am an Autumn baby, and I do prefer it over the other seasons. That being said, I truly enjoy living in a part of the world where we have 4 different seasons. And I do find something in each of them to appreciate! Have a lovely week, Sis!! ❤

    Happ Sunday, Sis! I agree with you as always. 🙂 In Germany there is a saying, there is no inpropriate weather, you are only wearing the wrong clothes. Since one week rubber boots are the best shoes here. Enjoy a nice Sunday! Best wishes, Michael

    You’re right about the weather. I wish people would stop trying to make us afraid of it.

    Spring is my favourite season, because I like to see my garden start to become more colourful.
