Rainy Days and Sundays...



And today is both. Blech. As happens to me occasionally, all will drains out with the sun and I've spent the day curled on the couch, wrapped around a cat. While my house is still a mess, I've almost gotten through the pile of library books, and I'm up on the most recent videos, courtesy of one of the all-videos-all-the-time stations on the tv.


At least whatever feasted on my gerber daisies last year hasn't gotten the new ones. Yet.

Adding to the cheer, there's a stray cat outside who is rather desperate to move into my house. The Peanut's been freaking out over the interloper for days. Sophia doesn't care - it is outside and therefore not worth Her Highness' notice. Every day, around dinnertime, the cat starts circling the house and shrieking to be let in. It starts on the front porch, moves to the window in the living room and ends up on the back porch. Peanut then spends a chunk of time growling and yowling back, while throwing herself into the French doors. Given the condition of the glass in this house, I'm afraid that one day she'll end up breaking the door.

In the meantime, hope your day was sunnier.

BTW, if you haven't heard her yet, Anjulie has a very interesting sound. I like it.

You have gerbera daisies already? Mine are still just stems. I think everything's coming up late here because we had a harsher than normal winter. I don't even have very many poppies and I'm usually overrun with them by now.

Here, I'm hoping for more rain. We are too dry!

There's something comforting about rain, to me. I love laying down for a nap while I can hear it coming down on the roof. Sort of a "white noise" effect, perhaps?

I don't miss the NC weather. I admire anyone who can dwell there.
