"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain." ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Today was a rather odd November day - not because it wasn't dark and dreary but because it was also unseasonably mild. I was rather surprised to check the outside temperature from my kitchen window prior to leaving for work this morning and finding it to be a balmy 60 degrees! 60 degrees at 6:30 in the morning in the middle of November?? Gee, wasn't it just last week that I was scraping the frost off of my windshield? No wonder my allergies are still up and running (literally!).

If I hadn't had to go into work today, it would have been a great day to stay home in bed with the window cracked open a little bit to let the fresh air in. There's something nice about lying in bed with the covers pulled up to your chin and listening to the rain outside of the window - it's very peaceful and relaxing and perfect for a Sunday morning. Add the Sunday morning paper and a nice hot cup of coffee and it's bliss.

Well, I suppose it would have been bliss but duty called and it was off to answer 911 and clean out the nasty refrigerator in the dispatch kitchenette while the rain ran down the windows. Not a bad day to be at work all things considered but still - to be home in bed would have been better. And speaking of which, I think it's time I go there now - the rain is still falling so I'm going to open that window and listen to the rain fall for a little while before going to sleep and then getting up to go back to work tomorrow to do it all over again - well, minus the nasty refrigerator that is!

  1. In the midst of all the gray, I didn't stop to think about the mild temperatures. But it really was warm, and in retrospect I am more depressed by the prospect of the oncoming cold than I was by the rain and gloom of the day. That's New England for ya.

  2. I WAS in bed all day - only because I stayed up too late watching movies because I couldn't go to sleep. That's what happens when your body is used to working nights. Even on my day off, I wanted to sleep all day. Oh well!

  3. I would have LOVED a nap Sunday.... unfortunately it takes a small act of God to get a 2 year old and a 2 month old to nap at the same time!!!
