Rainy Day Musings

Is winter back? It seems that way. It’s raining and just above freezing and only three days ago it was almost 80 degrees and sunny.

I am enjoying this last visit back with cold weather for the season. One more day to make a pot of chili and a cast iron skillet full of cornbread (which I will eat later crumbled in a glass of freezing cold milk!).

One more day to wrap up my kiddos in warm blankets while they do school work at their desks.

One more day to stay inside.

Because in a week, it will be sunshine and jump ropes and bicycles and freeze tag and bubble blowing contests.

And, I’ll enjoy that too. But today, I’m thankful for the cold rain.

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950

    Nice blog. I so can relate, sans young kids. Instead, I have a 30-something with wife and a mother…all live-in. I remember the jump rope days, baseball in the yard, kite flying, and bicycle rides.

    For some reason, winter doesn’t want to leave this year. And come August, we’ll be sorry to see that it did.
