It's a cool grey day today. The rain comes and then it goes, but not for long and then it's back again. The air is nice though, and I would love to have a covered porch (like this one) that I could go out to. I'd bring my tea and a biscuit or two, and I'd sprawl out on the daybed and listen to the birds. I'd wait for the mail to arrive, and I'd hope for lots of letters to read. And while I waited I'd just close my eyes and breathe in the smell of the cut grass and the lilacs.
But since there's no covered porch, and I've no desire to sit outside in the rain, I'm going to sit on the couch instead (still with the tea and biscuits, though). I'm going to fill in a million passport forms (if we want to go to the England, we need to have the proper paperwork, and it would seem that I am currently the only one in this house who's allowed to travel!) and I might just watch LOST again too. And when the boys wake up, we're going to make hot chocolate and drink it sitting inside our blanket fort. Should be a lovely afternoon, even without that covered porch I'm wishing for.
How are you going to spend this rainy afternoon? (and is it even rainy where you are?) And what are you wishing for these days?
