Rainy days in the summertime make me want to curl up under the bed covers and sleep or snuggle under a blanket on the sofa, drinking warm tea and reading a good book.
Today is one of those days; it's raining, chilly, and foggy. I have a small fire going in the woodstove just to dry things out a bit. The paper lined up in my printer was beginning to stick to itself, so hopefully the fire will help. I don't have much energy to do anything, although I have a list of items that need to get done since it is raining and I'm forced to be inside. On good days, my computer sits idle more often than not because I'm out in the garden, mowing the lawn, or off picking blueberries and raspberries, which I pack away in the freezer for the cold winter months. So, today I should get a pile of tasks taken care of, plus return to the novel I'm writing, which languished for a bit while family was visiting from out of state. But neither the list nor the novel are really calling to me. Perhaps I should take a hint from the cats. Both are sound asleep, one on our bed, the other in the guest room at the opposite end of the house. Tea and a book and a soft sofa will probably win out.
How do you spend a rainy day in the summer?
