Today has been a rainy, cold, generally yucky day. As nice as yesterday was, that’s how miserable today has been. I woke up today, earlier than I would have liked, feeling pretty rotten. The rain outside really made me just want to crawl back in bed and stay there, but that wasn’t really an option. Instead, this afternoon I sat up a cozy little reading nook on the couch we hardly use. I lit a couple of candles, made a cup of tea, threw a blanket over myself, and read for several hours. Granted, it was reading for my classes, but it was still enjoyable to relax and listen to the rain beating on the windows. My little Corgi even came and curled up with me for a bit, making an otherwise icky day just a little bit more bearable.
