Yay for rain!

I especially love raining, damp days when I have no where to go, no pressing things to tackle and can stay nice and comfy in my pj's all afternoon. Today just so happens to be one of those days. Cinnamon and I did our morning business before the real dampness set in, now she's nice and cozy curled up on the couch. (She is spoiled I am well aware ;) Roscoe is sitting in the window sill watching the rain drops.

So what's a girl to do all afternoon under such conditions? Well, I made myself a hot cup of French Vanilla coffee to ward off the dampness. This is one of my faaaavorite mugs. It says "Family Gatherings". Sorry the picture is a bit blurry, I really don't have a steady hand.

Then I lit some candles. I loooove the Country Apple waffer candles from Time&Again. I used to be able to find them anywhere, now not so much. I love this little diffuser, even though the rabbit seems to be acting a little inapropriate towards the squirrel ;)

I also lit this little guy. The smell is also Country Apple. I don't particularly like competing smells to much.

So, I have a yummy cup of flavored coffee, two scented candles burning and two content furbabies snoozing away. The only thing left for me to do is crack open a good book! I am currently on my second novel of the 7 trilogy from Nora Roberts. I looooooove them. The first one is called "Blood Brothers", the one I am currently reading is called "The Hollow" and the final one is called "The Pagan Stone".

You know the best part? I bought the first book with a gift card I received for Christmas. The second I received 20% off the cover price because it was on sale. The third book I got scot free because our complex has a library(ish) system. You donate any books you've already read, or no longer need and then you pick up any book off the shelves. It's a fabulous idea!!

So I am off to delve into the world of mystery and lore. I hope in your neck of the woods you're enjoying your day.

  1. I am so envious that you are at home all snuggled up with cozy things. I am stuck here at work daydreaming of it all. I think I will have to light some candles when I get home and make up for lost time ;)

    Enjoy your day!

  2. I wish I could curl up on the couch and rest. It's been raining her all day and I am at work. Love the ducks in the pond.

  3. Marcia...first..thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello. Secondly..I am so sorry to hear about your father. This is a terrible time for your mom. My family went through it. I felt as though I were cut in half and bleeding to death and no one could see. I never in this lifetime want to go through something like that again. I lost my second husband also..but..nothing is like with my first husband and highschool sweetheart. Nothing. Such pain is beyond belief.
    The terrible part is that nothing at all can help. My daughter used to call every day and just say " was your day?" You have no idea how that helped. Just that little thing. The nights were beyond belief. As soon as the sun began to go down..I would begin to cry ..again. I cried all day at first. As time goes lessens but not by much.
    Everyones relationship is different..but with a long time marriage like your mother and is terrible.

    If I can do anything at all..please do let me know. I have no idea what it could be..but I am here for you..or your Mother for that matter. My heart goes out to her.
    Hugs to you.. :) and thank you so much for stopping by to see me. I wish so much I could help. I do understand.
