Rainy Day Off
I think I care too much about the weather. It’s completely out of my control and yet I fret about it all the time. Some days still stick in my memory…..rare New England summer days that I describe as California days….hot and dry, cloudless blue sky. That’s weather perfection to me. But I get caught up in it, and I don’t like that.
I have a vacation day scheduled for tomorrow; the forecast is calling for rain. One went so far as to use the word “washout”. If a vacation day from work is not one spent outside in sunshine I think of it as wasted. I considered canceling but I thought about the day I have planned with my friend. She’ll be away next week, and another week after that in July. Who knows when we’ll next get to spend a day together with nothing on the agenda? So now I’m thinking of how we can enjoy this day that somehow involves the outdoors, or maybe bringing a bit of the outdoors….in. I will post again and let you know what the day brings.
I didnt have any pictures of a rainy day, so I decided to use this one that I took recently to illustrate what a California sky looks like, for anyone who’s never seen one. This pic was taken at the Clark Cooke House, one of my favorite spots in Newport.
