“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.”
― Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat
For days It hasn’t stopped raining here. We don’t mind the odd rainy day, in the house snuggling up with some books, but after a while the cabin fever can set it. So feeling the need for fresh air, yesterday Beth and I decided we’d had enough and braved the great outdoors. Although we had library books to return and blanket baiting to buy we took advantage of the wet weather and went to our favourite rainy day places. With Rosie the bunny in tow we visited the retro book shop, where we found a book called “rabbits and raindrops”, then after some puddle splashing we went to a cafe to play dominos and drink warm apple strudel tea. The best thing about this cafe, aside from its food and faerie garden, is its zen room. Really, it’s just an elevated alcove with pillows, but it’s great for spreading out and doing the odd sun dance if required.
Today it’s back to playgroup, seeing friends, returning library books, and my knitting circle tonight, but yesterday was about taking the time to acknowledge the rain and finding what we could from it.
