It's going to be a wet couple of days around here, and we're already in the middle of the wettest July in a long time. The US southeast has been in a drought for much of the past decade or so, but the ground is fairly saturated right now, so there's a good bit of flooding and standing water on the roads. Not good - we can't drive in the snow, and we definitely can't drive in heavy rain either.
Anyway, this is one of those days when I'd rather be at home in our "playroom" - where the vinyl windows can be slid down to screens, the breeze can blow through a little, the rain can fall on the metal roof while I kick back on the papasan couch and read-snore-read-meditate-snore. The thunder can roll, the lightning can flash across the horizon, and when the power goes out, we can light the candles and oil lamps, let the house get really quiet - and not too warm, please, since the A/C will be out, too! - and play games until bedtime.
Good times, good times. But for now - back to work.
