Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.
Rain thrums against the roof and I when I turn to look outside all I can see is trails of water streaming down my window. It is a dismal day, wet and cold, and my desire to leave my house is nonexistent.
I decide that today will be a day just for me. No chores, no leaving, no nothing. At my feet my dog yawns and I believe she agrees with my idea.
In the kitchen the kettle whistles to me that it’s done and I pour myself a steaming hot cup of peppermint tea (my favorite). I settle on the couch with my tea and a blanket, and smile as my dog jumps up to lay beside me. Nothing is better than a rainy day spent curled up with a mug of tea and a good book (probably one I’ve already read 10 time before) with my dog by my side.
