Rainy days and Mondays

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

It’s both of those things out there this morning. Not only is it pouring rain, but the wind is howling and the trees are doing a frenetic dance to its tune. The rain is being lashed against the windows. By looking at it out there you’d expect it to be really cold. But it’s 51 freakin’ degrees! Yesterday it never got above 33 degrees during the daylight hours. Cold and damp, too. If it had stayed cold we’d be having a blizzard.

It’s not really cold enough to have a fire going, but I started one anyway. It makes me feel better. I liked this rather creepy reflection of the fire and the rattan chairs in the sun room. Do you see Mrs. Cardinal on the bird feeder? Poor thing!

I am going to hunker down inside today. No way am I going out in that gale. I’ve already got the ingredients for dinner, (either Chicken Fingers with Chipotle-Honey sauce or Cornflake Crusted Chicken Fingers with coleslaw) so no need to do any grocery shopping. I am almost finished with my slippers and I hope to finish them up. Just one more sole to go (and I am halfway through that already), and then all the sewing up and weaving all the ends in. I have a good book to read too. And ... the Food Network is back!! Thank goodness! The dogs have some tasty filled bones that I bought the other day for such a rainy day occasion to keep their boredom away. Bella just went to the door asking to be let out. I opened it. She just stood there sniffing the air, watching the rain pour down and decided she really didn’t want to go out after all.

Wherever you are today, no matter what your weather is, I hope you stay warm and dry! I’m just glad to be staying home.

wow…51 degrees….looks totally miserable.  Sounds like you have the day planned well for the weather. 
I am so happy to hear Food Network is back for you.  Enjoy!

Debra, yes it was pretty miserable!!!

That was our weather all last week!  High in the low 50’s and rain - every day of my vacation!

These pics, taken through the windows? Fabulous! And smart.

It was a crazy weather day in DC, too, pouring rain then 10 minutes later totally clear skies, then dark overcast, etc. The wind was crazy and the air was weird - balmy and warm in the morning, but by 7 pm it was cold again.

Duck and cover in that kind of crazy weather!!

Reya, no kidding (duck and cover!) Yes, shot through windows! Thanks, glad you liked them!
