Liars

Who are some of the worst ones?

I’m not pointing fingers, but when I looked at the forecast yesterday, there was a slight chance of rain for today.  Now, it’s so dark outside, one would think a tornado will be passing through at any moment.  Mind you I live in an area where tornadoes do occasionally pass through, but today is most likely not that day.  It’s too cold outside.

I’m not going to mention other huge liars.  I just wanted to bitch about the weather.  With Memorial Day approaching, I’m praying for good weather, considering our plans for that day.  I don’t own a pair of galoshes.  So if I follow through with my plan, and everything is muddy, I may need to strap plastic bags around my white sneakers.

Thanks to last night’s insomnia, I’m barely human.  I’m seriously considering making good use of a bath bomb.  This craptastic weather is perfect for drawing a hot bath, with lots of candles everywhere.  Hopefully I don’t fall asleep.

Maybe I’ll bring Alexa into the experience.  It’s better than risking the life of my phone.

What do you like to do on a dark rainy day?

Rainy Days and Mondays

Wait, it’s Thursday.  But it’s raining, which usually means bleh.  It’s perfect for folding the laundry that’s been staring at me for at least a week.  I hate laundry.  I’d rather clean the kitchen, or sort boxes in my creepy basement.

But, no.  I’ll just take this quiet afternoon, and use it to my advantage.  Laundry can wait until tonight.  Instead, I’m going to enjoy the sounds of the rain, relax, and observe the traffic passing by.  I seldom do this.  It’s definitely calming.

I just might pick up my crocheting while I’m at it. I’m a few days behind in my temperature blanket.

Have you ever sat to simply take in the sites and sounds of your surroundings?  Depending on your location, it can be very serene.  Even if you’re in a suburb, there are still places to escape to, like a nearby park, where there are plenty of people walking their dogs.

But if you’re rural, it’s even more enjoyable on a day like today.  I admit, more often than not, the rain brings me down.

I downright get into an ugly depressed funk, which sucks me in for days, sometimes weeks.

But today, there’s something about the smell in the air, and light drumming of rain against my roof.  It’s not a heavy rain, so I’m able to open a few windows, turn on a fan, and sit back.  It’s almost perfect for meditation.

That said, I’m off to get my head clear – before my daughter returns from college tonight.  It’s going to be a longggg summer.  But we miss her, so it’s all good.

Good afternoon.
