Just to drive home my point about the rain, here are two photos from yesterday. They were taken (by my daughter) about ten minutes apart in the early afternoon.
This morning I was playing with this first photo, thinking about switching it to black and white, and then I was like, Um, why? It's already totally gray. Rain really does take the color out of life.
And then, a few miles down the road, brilliant green and almost sunny.
Virginia weather is crazy.
It's scheduled to rain all next week, I hear. But the next week? TONS OF SUN. Can't wait!
PS. It's Friday and I'm still upright. I planned my week carefully, scheduling at least one social interaction for each day. My I-need-people plan continues through this weekend and right into next week. Go me.
PPS. This is sort of a non-post. I apologize. I will be back (who knows when) with cookies. Peanut butter and chocolate are involved. Sit tight.
PPPS. Come to think of it, maybe this is a good time, what with the rain and the upcoming weekend and all, to share book/movie suggestions? Yes? Okay then! I'll go first.
Reading: Currently, On Acting, by Steven Breese, and next up, Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson (for book club) and A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith (reviewing it to see if it would be a good family read aloud).
Watching: Seinfeld (because some friends gave us a bunch of seasons for our broken-back son), Catastrophe (because a friend mentioned it on Facebook), and House of Cards (I'm a couple episodes short of completing the show). As for movies, I've recently seen Brooklyn, Spotlight, Concussion, and The Big Short, and I'm wanting to see The Lady in the Van, Eye in the Sky, and The Intern.
Your turn! What are you watching and reading?
This same time, years previous: on getting a teen out of bed in the morning, the quotidian (5.12.14), maseca cornbread, two quotidians, lemon rhubarb chicken, rhubarb sorbet, and bald-headed baby.
