I’m a little disappointed in Mother Nature these days. I think she is rather bullheaded, as she forges forward with day after day of dismal and dreary weather. Today was a washout – an inch of rain, and tomorrow is looking rather ugly as well. Your roving reporter just sucked it up and stayed in bed later this morning, while listening to the birds on the back windowsill cheeping away, grateful for a safe haven. I was grateful they were grateful, even though they began murmuring around 5:30 a.m. I’m always happy to accommodate my fine-feathered friends. 🙂
I have no wit or wisdom to impart today as my brain may be moldy from all this rain. But, as I pondered this recent weather, while wrapping my hands around my steaming mug of joe this morning, I developed a theory about ol’ Ma Nature. It goes like this: I think the old gal has worn all her primary color crayons to a stub. (Either that or they all rolled under the bed or disappeared into the couch cushions.)
I think Mother Nature then hopped on Amazon and ordered these crayons:
I am tempted to quip that Mother Nature has left me high and dry as to my walking regimen, but that would a misnomer, wouldn’t it? After all, that’s what umbrellas were invented for.
I’m still trying to embrace the walking-in-the-rain concept, but I’m not quite there yet. On a positive note, since I gleaned an extra hour not walking, I spent that time researching, then ordering some waterproof walking shoes and writing this post. Woo hoo! The worms and I can have a good ol’ time together.
Onward and upward on this walking regimen!
