It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
He went to bed and
bumped his head
And he didn't get up in the morning!
(I don't think I ever really considered what a violent song that little children's ditty is!)
It's been running through my head this morning because, well, it's true today. It is absolutely pouring down outside and has been since I returned to consciousness this morning. At around six thirty, I rolled over and looked out the window at the deluge. Realizing that there would be no bike ride this morning, I rolled over and decided to doze off for a few more minutes.
At nine, the next time I woke up, I looked out and it was still raining. I got up and did a bit of housework, made some breakfast, and had a bit of a lie-in on the couch with the dog. It's now just about noon and I have friends coming over for lunch. The rain has slackened but not stopped all morning. I hope I can get a ride in this afternoon. I doubt it, though!
Ah well, I have friends coming over for lunch and need to get cooking.
Wherever you are today, I hope the weather is not obstructing your plans for the day.
