Hoping it lets up in time for the Cubs to win the pennant!

Drinking tea, reading, and napping. I'm doing all three right now!

I enjoy watching the rain fall from my couch. Unfortunately, that's hard to do and still look like you're working.

Watching those Netflix DVDs that have been piling up at my door since I became re-employed.

Sleep. Sleep. More Sleep.

Today? Cocooning on the train with a good music and good reading.

On days like this, you don't want to get up. You want a warm body next to you, snuggled up under the covers, being silly, being philosophical, talking about everything and nothing. Looking out your window as the drops trail down, the street lamps are on and it's quiet but warm.

Yes, I'm feeling sentimental today.

I get tons of work done when it's raining, oddly enough. So, work.

I learned to enjoy biking in the rain this summer. I like the feeling of water running over my face, burning my eyes, running into my mouth.
Biking to work this morning in the freezing rain and wind, I learned to dislike it again...
