Rain for Christmas

Rain for Christmas

Though the day outside was bleak with rain, grey skies, rain, cold, RAIN, RAIN and even more rain, indoors was cozy, warm and restive. We were fortunate to not have to travel, and so Christmas day was celebrated with the peacefulness of being 'tucked inside' without any urgent obligations to pull us from the house. The kitties stayed on the porch out of the wet, telephone calls were exchanged, and the quietness of the day was truly appreciated.

We awoke this morning to more rain and more grey skies ... we heard a bit of thunder yesterday which typically predicts a snowstorm in about 10 days -- we'll see. The same thing happened prior to our snow last week ...

Today we do have a few things to get accomplished, so we'll have to don the boots and umbrellas and brave the weather. I sincerely hope those in the midlands and New Englad got through the blizzards safely.

Have a great day, everyone!

We didn't have rain but rather rain in the form of white stuff! And still coming.

Gorgeous painting Lin.

Lin - I like the way you captured the grey look to the landscape...with the touches of snow still on the ground.

I made sure I exercised this morning to wear off some of the delicious foods we've eaten lately. But I think I've got to exercise all day for it to work. lol We have clear weather up here in Maine, but too cold. I wish there was a good view out the windows. Have a great day!!

Looks like a typical January day. Brr -- so realistic!
Glad you were able to stay in warm and cozy yesterday. It rained her yesterday and then got very windy and very cold.
