It’s Rainy Today

Lovers Under Covers

Rain_cottage_womanI like the rain – sometimes.
If I’m indoors and it’s cozy.
Not if I’m outdoors & it’s cold.
The best time I like the rain – is at a cottage, when you have all these outdoor chores to do, but you’d rather not and you wake to rain.
You are forced to stay inside and take a me day.
No where to go, nothing in particular that has to get done.
Just you and the rain coming down and hitting the roof in rhythm.
Inside rumbling, crackling fires are better in the rain,
Making hot tea or hot chocolate is better in the rain,
Making breakfast is better in the rain. Hot buttered toast smells better in the rain. Bacon smells better in the rain.
I don’t drink coffee, but even fresh percolating coffee is better in the rain.
Big fluffy robes are better in the rain.
My long, black cashmere sweater feels better in the rain.
Freshly dried clothes, hot sheets & primped towels feel so much better in the rain. Playing board games with friends and family is better in the rain.
Playing cards and chit chat with friends and lovers is better when it rains.
Calm kids, giggling kids, kids getting along are better when it rains.
Soccer games are so much more fun in the rain. Dancing in the rain.
3:00 Daytime knaps on the cottage couch or sun porch daybed rock in the rain!
Diving under big puffy down duvets are better in the rain.
Curling up beside your loved one and nestling your bodies together is way better in the rain.
And aren’t the other things we do under the covers with our lovers all better in the rain? lovers_cuddle
Music is better in the rain – especially jazz, ambient and Morrison.
Songs about rain are better in the rain.
The CBC is way better in the rain.
Reading books is better in the rain – Did you ever notice you read more pages?
Hot bubble baths rock in the rain. The bubbles are bigger when it rains.
Tea lights and candles are better in the rain.
Red wine tastes better in the rain.
Paris is better in the rain. It’s even more romantic in the rain.
And hot tropics like Costa Rica are better when it rains.
Homemade soup is better in the rain.
Chilli, spaghetti & garlic buns all taste better in the rain.

Why? Why is everything better in the rain?
Because we are nature.
And the closer we our to nature, the closer we our to our soul.
And our souls often need nature to reboot.
Rain feeds the soul.

If it’s coming down over you, around you, into the earth beneath and through you and even if your caught running in it – You are getting soothed by mother nature.
A very wet mother nature.

Getting caught running in the rain without an umbrella is the worst thing about the rain.
Unless it’s sunny and you’re about to have your first kiss with a lover – Then, then it’s way ok getting caught in the rain.
What do you love to do in the rain?

In Richness of Being a word lover,
