Why I love rainy afternoons
It is raining, obviously, and I realized how much I love rainy afternoons. I think of hot tea, old movies, my silky soft blanket and a huge, incredibly hard jigsaw puzzle. I think that I love them so much because they mean "lazy". You can decide to put off the grocery store trip or playing outside (which is exhausting for a mother of 4 with a couple who still need lots of attention when outdoors.) It makes me feel like curling up with a good book and dozing off. Wouldn't that be lovely? I think the kids and I will do just that. I will get some puzzles out on the dining table and a stack of books that haven't been opened in a while. Maybe we will end the evening with an old movie that kids forgot about. Now.....if only I can get the munchkins on board.
