I wait for this day every year. It doesn't always get here. This is a downside to living in beautiful Southern California. Rainy days? Not so many.
But today is just lovely. It's not too cold. The rain is constant and just a drizzle. Things are in a beautifully chaotic state with Christmas being packed away for another year.
The Narcissus is blooming.
And my big dog? Well, he can't decide if he wants to be in or out, so we pass in the kitchen, often.
The pup and I were up very early to pick up papers from the vet so she could go to obedience school. Then school. Coffee in the rain with my friend and her doggy. I just said coffee in the rain. Ya really can't say that very often here in our town. But we sat outside at the Starbuck's with our poochies until the drizzle turned to drops and got a bit soaked walking the dogs back to our cars.
The first part of the day had Lucy and me just a bit exhausted. I made a fire out of our wonderful cedar firewood. Crack! Pop! Good night right there on the living room floor. I snoozed a bit and was joined by both Lucy and my girlie. At this point, I'm heading back to Christmas while the two of them nap. I'm in and out with boxes (and my big old German Shepherd) and just enjoying every minute.
Crackling fire. Raindrops. Naps. Reorganizing.
This is my idea of a perfect day.
A nice cup of tea is in order, don't you think?
