A Rainy Visit

West Wycombe

There is a gentle rain falling on this early November morning. I was getting ready to do the morning work but didn't want to turn on the lamps. The dim, dreariness of the outdoors was almost charming.

I have to take care of Grandbaby in just a little while.  When he wakes up, all other activities must be dropped, for baby must have all my attention.  So please forgive me if this writing stops abruptly.

Mister and I did a little shopping last evening.  We had a tight budget for groceries this week because we had some other necessary expenses that took quite a bit of money.  It will be better in a few days.

I have all kinds of things to cook and bake; but plan to be quiet and enjoy the rainy day.  It puts one in a mood for just reading by the window, and having a simple day without any worries.

I baked cornbread to go with a late afternoon lunch yesterday.  I will bake a pumpkin pie (frozen) this morning.  It brings a warming sense of happiness because it brings a delightful scent to the kitchen.

I still have to clean the parlour and work on the kitchen, but wanted to have a quick little visit with you.

Have a wonderful day!

Mrs. White

It's dull, rainy and dreary here in the UK too, Mrs White. There is a peaceful quietness about it, and I have two candles flickering away casting a warm glow. It's nice, but makes one a bit sleepy.

A rainy morning? Sounds delightful. I wish we had a few more of those down here in Texas! I truly enjoy rainy days. To me they are so calming and peaceful.

Thank you for writing about your life on your blog. We lead very similar lives, and we seem to be very like-minded. It's such an inspiration to read your posts. I wish Texas and Vermont weren't so far away from each other! I'm sure we would be great friends. :-)

It's so good to hear from you. I hope all is well.

God bless!

I do hope you have your car running again.

I agree with suzannah, you are peaceful and it is so nice to read you in this chaotic world.
I am having a quiet day with baby grandson. I must go to the post office to mail an important letter and have thought about doing some errands while out but I would rather be home so we may just drive the 4 miles to the post office and then come right back home

I must admit that I never think of the "dim, dreariness of the rain charming"!
You have such a skill with words. I like that perspective.... especially here in the Pacific Northwest where it rains from October through April pretty much daily!
I'll remember that I'm blessed to live in a "charming" area :)

Hello Mrs. White.
Enjoyed my visit with you on this rainy day. Looking out the window is a treat to me.

If I don't get by this way before Thanksgiving Day, I'm wishing you a sweet one.

God bless and may you have a wonderful Holiday,
