A Quiet, Rainy Day

By , May 19, 2011

There’s nothing like a cozy, rainy day. I’m loving all the rain we’ve been getting lately, and loving the amazing lushness it’s creating all over the city. I’ve always wanted to live in greener, lusher surroundings…and suddenly I do! It probably won’t last, and summer’s heat will be here soon enough, so I’m really savoring this days-and-days-of-rain pattern. I don’t like biking in the rain, and don’t have anywhere I need to be, so I’ve just been hanging low and staying home. Bliss!

I’m also feeling thankful for being able to work from home. After 5 years of working in a dark basement cubicle with no natural light, it feels like heaven to be doing work whilst sitting by the bedroom window, listening to the rain, sipping tea…nice n’ cozy in my slippers and robe (which Hubby and I call “The Hugh Hefner Robe” because of its luxurious red-velour-like resemblance to something likely to be found in the Playboy mansion!).

So what’s the weather been up to in your area?

    Yesterday it was very rainy as well here in Athens and it was wonderful to be at home with my babies enjoying the quiet sound of rain!
    Late in the afternoon the sun came up and we all enjoyed a walk in our green neighborhood 🙂
    But we expect some very warm weather this weekend, temperature would rise to 25 C, great for weekend outings.
    And then more rain next week, oh I love this season as summer is usually too hot here!

    Hi Evi!
    Don’t you just love the sound of the rain? Glad you got to be home with your kids to enjoy it. And enjoy your weekend weather; ours is supposed to be nice here, too. If summer never got above 25 C, I’d be plenty happy! 🙂

    Lovely to hear from you,
