Today: here comes the rain

Outside my window The rain is very welcome after the 90F heat of the last few days.

I am thinking what a lovely weekend we had. 

I am thankful for the slow cooker, currently cooking tonight's dinner so I don't have to heat up the house.

From the kitchen lime marmalade on toast for lunch, chicken quietly cooking for tonight's simple dinner of chicken, mustard mash and vegetables.

I am wearing my nightshirt! Haven't made it to the shower yet this morning afternoon. Its on the list.

I am creating along with the Profnewly-married life. Thinking a lot lately about the kind of life we want to have, and what that looks like. 

I am going to put the kettle on for a nice cup of rooibos tea.

I am reading In the Kitchen, by Monica Ali. Enjoying it so far. 

I am hoping that the short recent upward trend in my health will continue beyond a couple of days.

I am hearing raindistant thunder and the hiss of car tyres on the wet road outside my house.

Around the house laundry. Always laundry. Piles of books. Paperwork. 

One of my favourite things summer rain. I like to stand at the kitchen door and watch it.

A few plans for the rest of the week a T'ai Chi class, a B12 shot, home-cooked dinners, early nights


  1. I like these snapshots that you do of your day. It's raining here too after a hailstorm, thunder & lightning! I've got the slow cooker on as well, tho mostly because the oven is broken. I hope you keep feeling better! Married life obviously suits you :)

  2. Hi Sara, glad you got the rain eventually there too. It has cooled everything down nicely here. Thanks for popping by :-)
