rainy days and new starts
This morning, after taking my car to the shop for a long, long, long overdue oil change, I came home, sat down at my Mac, logged on and sat staring at the screen. An instant message from my friend Dan immediately popped up.
dan the man: Freedom! Woohoo!
karen: Now what?
dan the man: be happy in whatever you do
Be happy in whatever you do. I love how that sounds.

The temperature has dropped today, and this morning is cool enough for a light sweater. It's also raining like cats and dogs outside.
I love this kind of weather, and always have. When my parents got married 42 years ago, the weather on their wedding day was horrible: very wet and stormy. Since then, though, and certainly since my very earliest memories, every time there's been bad weather my father says calmly, "This is a good day. This is Walrond weather. Very, very lucky."
I love that it rained yesterday evening, and it's supposed to rain all day today.
Song: Use me up, by Bill Withers. It's my favourite rainy-day song.
