It is raining. Hard. I hear it on the windows and the cars are splashing up water as they drive by. It is dark. The air is cool. I love it.
There is something so healing and comforting about these days. Andrew and I made cheesy-chicken pasta for lunch. We are wearing snuggly clothes and I have fuzzy socks on. I put Andrew down for nap with extra blankets and am about to make myself a mug of hot chocolate. For the first time really this week I feel peaceful and settled and I can't help but wonder if it is in part because of weather. It is such calming, reflective, restful weather...when you have the luxury of staying indoors. And I do.
The plans for the afternoon? Andrew and I will have the Friday Afternoon Matinee when he wakes up. And we will eat yesterday's cookies. And snuggle with blankets on the couch.
The only way this could be better is if it were snowing instead.
