It's raining

It's raining. Again. Although we haven't been subjected to extreme heavy rain and floods like some areas, it has been raining non-stop almost all week and doesn't look likely to change any time soon. It's not bitterly cold (yet) or extremely windy, but the rain has been constant and quite heavy. And winter isn't due to officially start until Tuesday.

Today would make a great duvet day, if it weren't for the cabin fever resulting from several days cooped up inside. Luckily I've been working from home this week and haven't had to brave the elements very often. Still, there are some good things about being inside at home on a wintry weekend: vegetable soup with French sour dough bread and fresh coffee, movies, hot chocolate at a local café and reading while curled up by the heater. Unfortunately, most of these still require at least some attempt to leave the house, as the only thing I could do right now is read one of the many books I've got handy.

We're planning to leave the house at some stage and maybe even catch a movie tonight. In the meantime, I can't help having a few themed songs going through my head.

It's Raining Again - Supertramp

Here Comes The Rain Again - Eurythmics

Rain - Dragon

What are you up to this weekend? Is it raining where you are?

Yep. Raining here, just as it has all week too. Exciting times though as I've been in negotiation with a real estate agent all afternoon and I am veeeery close to buying an apartment :) :) :)

Yup, lots of rain over here in Canada. We've been itching to get on the fields, and just when things are getting dry enough... ok, not really, but you could pull a tractor out there... it rains yet again. I hope we get our crop before it drowns!
