Rainy Days and Tuesdays

I like rainy days - I always have. Even when I was little - I remember hearing rain as I woke up and, before I had even opened my eyes, being happy that it was raining. I woke up that way today, smiling with my eyes shut, listening to the rain - knowing that when I opened them I would see a rainy window.

I sort of wonder how I ended up in Michigan though, with my love of rain I probably should have moved to Seattle or Portland. Maybe we still will, then I can wake up with a smile on my face more often - I think we'd all like that.

We haven't had very many good rainy days this Fall (or even summer for that matter). Don't get me wrong, I like warm sunny days, but I'm pretty much done with them after Labor day. I've been ready and waiting for Fall for a while now, and it's only just arrived - I couldn't be happier.

Scott thinks I'm mad as a hatter, he says he would rather have warm days than cool (I'll have to remind him of that next July when he's complaining about the heat). I'm thrilled to turn the air conditioner and fans off, cuddle up under a down blanket, light some candles, start a fire and drink hot tea. The strange thing is that I hate to be cold, but somehow Fall just appeals to me.
