Rain, Rain, Go Away

We're having a particularly hard winter here in Louisiana, hard by our standards anyway.
The temperatures have been in the lower 30s since Christmas and it has rained every
single day for the last two weeks.  Not just a few sparse showers, but flash floods, hail,
sleet, and thunderstorms that go on for hours.  Schools were closed down due to ice on
the roads, we had no internet and have been stuck indoors.  I have come to realize that my
high school dream of living in Seattle and marrying Eddie Vedder could most definitely
never be a reality as I am just not cut out for this cold, wet weather.  Shawn is so relieved.
The good thing about this kind of weather, though, is the togetherness we have experienced
as a result.  We've watched all our favorite movies, baked brownies and had breakfast
for dinner, slept all together in the big bed for warmth, and slowed down to a really lazy
pace.  It has been peaceful and quiet here and for that I am grateful.  I've just ordered
"The Night Circus" and "Gone Girl", two books I've been told are must reads.  Is
there anything better than lounging in your sweats on a rainy day with a good book?
I think not.  Maybe this weather isn't so bad after all...

Yes, sometimes I love the bad weather for the excuse to slow down and stay inside for a while.

Ooh, you'll have to tell me what you think of those books. I loved them both.

I'm glad you all are making the most of the rainy days with cozy time at home.
