When we get an occasional grey, rain all day
in South Florida, it gives me just the excuse
I need to indulge a few home comforts.
I don't need to rush off for my
usual morning tennis game.
We put our 'must-do's' on hold for a day.
It's too wet to go anywhere.
There is no 'outside' beckoning us
So we plan our day:
First: breakfast in bed.
Second: We have a DVD movie to watch
in the afternoon.
Third: Have something roasting low and slow
in the oven to fill the house with a great
aroma and that makes us look forward
to a comfort food dinner.
In between we do get in a few household
chores done and a little puttering.
When we lived in Illinois, we would often
spend snowy Sunday mornings bringing
breakfast and the Sunday paper up to our
3rd floor bedroom. It was a great treat
after a long work week. We'd wile away hours
enjoying breakfast, and reading the paper.
Sometimes we'd watch an old movie,
and pour more coffee. The view out of our
large window looked out over the snow-filled
treetops onto the lake.
It was a spectacular winter scene.
So now I pour some tea and get my book
and my little doggie and go nowhere.
Gotta love that!
