I need sunshine on this cloudy day

Oh, it’s so yucky out here in Toledo today. . . 

Rain and gloom brings out the lazy in me. I’m on another holiday from work, the last of them for the year aside from the standard Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. And I thought to myself this morning that while I could never be a stay at home mom full time, I could definitely get behind this only working 3 days a week business. Cue rich husband, haha. 

Today I was supposed to get my car fixed; that is being postponed. Just brakes and rotors for now, suspension work following that. I need to do some stuff around the house, and run an errand for brother. . . But this weather! I just brewed a beautiful cup of coffee, and my bed and book are calling me ever so enticingly.

I also know that there is an auction being held at my grandparents home today. And while I was told I could attend, I just can’t. I can’t watch my childhood be sold, so to speak. It is necessary and I agree that it needs to be done – but as I told Dorothy, if someone makes a negative comment in my presence about something my Mamaw loved, I’m liable to reduce myself to violence. 

So I’m going to curl up with my coffee and a book, and ignore the world for a little while. 

I hope the sun is shining where you are. Happy Thursday.
