It rained today as I came home from work. I love the smell of rain on hot pavements. Under my umbrella, I could feel a faint dampness from the drizzle on my face. The sound of the light drops on the black cloth felt comforting.

After dinner, I took the rubbish out and Annie joined me. The rain had stopped and the air was cool and fresh. We stood in the front garden and looked at the raindrops on the leaves. The sky was velvet blue.
