Rainy Dark Day
Sunday, December 02, 2012
. . . I listened to the rain on the roof all night: semi-solid! But the rain didn't evolve into the white fluffy stuff, so it's not looking skiable today.
OK, then. Plan B? I got in a great workout at the gym yesterday . . . 30 minutes on the elliptical plus upper body free weights.
If it actually stopped raining . . . a hike with Charlie? Pretty muddy!!
Our Christmas plans are very low key this year. We're all sad DS isn't coming home and nobody's telling Charlie! We'll Skype. Things change, feelings don't, and we'll adapt. Have to admit, less planning/organization is likely to happen since DS is our only family member who really *likes* Christmas. DD is vegan, very anti-materialistic etc. So we'll keep it simple. And . . . yup, that does mean less work for me in particular. I can live with that!
Busy work week upcoming, With nothing pressing here, it may be that this is a day to just soak in a hot bath, then hunker down with a good book . . . maybe with a fresh pot of soup simmering. Spicy peanut chicken appeals.
Rainy dark days: cozy, comfortable, love the sound of rain on the roof.
