I'm a rain lover

I actually love any weather that is not hot.  I love it more if the sun isn't shining brightly (I hate the glare).  So rain is right in my wheelhouse.  I just read down my page and more entries than not mention rain.... must be a soggy day world wide!

In Seattle, we rarely get what we called on the East coast, gully washers.  We have, usually, slow rain that goes and on and then often stays misty for a lone while after it stops actually raining.  Today's rain is a little rainier than usual and its nice.  

And it's a little chilly which I really love.  My thermostat here by my chair says it's 66 in here right now.  It might be a nice evening to light a log in the fireplace.  I have electric baseboard heat here but I have only turned it on a couple of times in the 20 years I've lived here.  I get 'free' heat from the units above, below and on either side of me.

Today I dug out my lap blankets and sprinkled them around so it would be handy to grab one if/when I need it.

Winter, she is here and yahoo!!!
