Topic: It's Still Raining
Alas, the weekend is here and it's raining. In our office everyone was looking forward to sunshine and spring weather this weekend, and instead we got more rain. It's Earth Day down in Paonia today, and traditionally the weather is lousy for Earth Day.
Really, we ought to be so thankful for all this wonderful moisture. I am... really... but at the same time, it's getting dull having it every day when we are used to blue skies and sunshine.
My dear husband says, "Oops, it's raining. I can't patch the roof today." But when the sun comes out, then he says, "Oh good, the sun is shining, there's no need to patch the roof now."
One thing about it. I have plenty to do inside, and if the weather had been nice today, I would have felt obligated to work outdoors.
I actually don't feel like doing any work of any kind today. My brain is temporarily dysfunctional and I've found it hard to concentrate. Curling up with a good book sounds like the best idea.
Speaking of books, I've been reading Bev Dombrowski's The Pegasus Lightship: A Journey With Janus, and also started A Crack in the Great Wall, which is a great let-down (my brain doesn't allow me to remember the author's name at the moment). Pegasus, however, is a pretty good book if you are into channeling, and Bev is a wonderful person. But I'm more in the mood today for a good gothic novel or mystery/romance (my favorite genre, if you hadn't already guessed by what I like to write).
It's Mother's Day tomorrow. Perhaps the sun will shine of us mothers. I'm taking a trip to see some exciting scenery with my husband and our dog. And if it rains... I'll just sigh and thank the Creator that we are getting more much-needed precipitation.
