I usually don’t like rain. When it rains I’m normally doing everything I can to stay dry. Today was different. When I got off work it was drizzling but I still stopped to chat with my girlfriend who works the 4-12 Midnight shift. Surprisingly the rain was quite comfortable but since I was carrying bags I just got on the bus to the subway then onward towards my home in Brooklyn.
When I got home I realized that I did not have anything to drink in the fridge so back out into the rain to my local bodega for liquid refreshment. Once home into the shower, quaff my tasty Chocolate Ensure, change clothes then I decided to go into! the backyard for a few minutes of Rain Salutations in the gentle soothing showers. I just stood outside feeling the raindrops splashing my skin. It would have been nice to sit but all the lawn chairs were wet. So I did a few stretching exercises extending my hands and arms to the Heavens. Refreshing!
One of the many great advantages of naturally curly kinky coilly hair is that I don’t worry about my hair getting wet like I did years ago when I straightened my hair or had perms in my hair. If you’re a Black Woman No Explanation is needed. You know exactly what I mean! 🙂
As you can see from the Weather Link it is warm in New York. Trust me when I say I will not be doing this when the temps in New York drop below 40 degrees or when it starts snowing!! LOL!! 🙂 😀
