“Sometimes the most urgent thing
you can possibly do is take a complete rest.”
It’s been a rainy day here today in the Granite State . There’s a chill in the air and the leaves are trumpeting their last hurray in red and gold before winter sets in. It’s the kind of day where, as my dear friend Mimi wisely observed, you toss on a pair of sweats, throw dinner in the crockpot (“Set it and forget it!” ), and then kick back and let the luscious scent of autumn fill your home (I’m already catching a whiff of beef stew…)
Bug and Beau and I took the hint and snuggled in for a day of relaxation–reading and snoozing as the rain tapped softly on the windowpanes and the snores of the dogs sketched a lovely contrappunto. It was, in a word, a perfect afternoon.
As we drift into Friday evening, I leave you with the dulcet tones of singer-songwriter Melody Gardot (a personal favorite) singing “The Rain.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQA4EoE2cOM
Happy Friday all….
