Finally, it’s raining. We’ve had a month without rain, which has made everything pretty crispy around our place. The bonus is no lawn to mow, the downside is no flowers and a vegetable garden that was giving up. With any luck it will rain all day and bring things back to life.
It’s put us in the mood to do nothing at all. I enjoy days like this. The kids do too. Most of the time the kids are outside playing, but on rainy days we get to curl up on the couch, read, watch movies and generally laze around. We might do some baking if we have a burst of enthusiasm this afternoon. Or not. There is definitely a trip to the library in our future.
I like that our home is someplace comfortable, someplace we want to be on a rainy day in the middle of summer.
Of course, that could change if the kids start bickering and saying that they are bored, in which case I’ll hand them their bathing suits and tell them to get out.
