Rain is for.....

....big round mugs with steaming hot tea, sweetened with a spoonful of honey and a pinch of brandy.

....cell phone off, TV on kinda days.

.....planning to go to the movies and popping in a DVD instead.

....old movie marathons.

.....comfy comforters and cozy high thread count sheets.

.....a pajama party with someone special. without the pajamas.

.....the spoon. of the human variety.

......falling asleep to the lull of the drops tapping your windowsill.

......waking up to the patter of different raindrops in the exact same spot.

.....not cooking a damn thing and ordering in for every meal.

.....baking cookies from scratch just for the warmth that escapes when you break them in two.

....sharing secrets face to face. and not going anywhere.

So why am I here at work????

This was beautiful. Don't know why you went to work, but after this one, I wonder if you're going to work on the next rainy day.

girl i am sooo sick of this rain i don't know what to do.

But there are a few things rain is good for and you've mentioned most of them.

This weekend looks like it might be more of the same :( and if so i'm hitting everything on this list.
