Salutations! It’s nonstop rain here today on the East Coast, which I don’t mind. I like the odd rainy day as long as it’s sandwiched between several days of sunshine. I’m not sure why we correlate rain with romance, but it’s lovely. Doesn’t a cup of morning coffee seem to taste extra delightful when it’s raining out? Aah, a hot cup and a cozy knit throw on a soaker of a morning is pure bliss.
Paisley on the other hand was a tad put off that I didn’t leash her up for a trot, instead we headed up for a session of Fitness Blender on the iPad. My back has been killing me since the battle I had this past weekend with the ivy in the front garden; the ivy won I’m afraid. So I tried the Restorative Yoga Pilates Workout to Improve Mood & Circulation. Fitness Blender is really my go to source for whatever kind of workout I’m in need of lately. I really wasn’t needing a mood improvement before I started, but I have to say after finishing the workout my back felt so much better and my mood did improve!
This is why Paisley’s not so fond of Fitness Blender – she spends it watching from my bed. Lets all feel sorry for her, shall we?
So then it’s off to the store, which I’m not a fan of when it’s raining cats and dogs. I had hoped to pick up some flowers to brighten up the cottage dining room and counter the dark and rainy day (the pink ones in the bedroom are from the back garden.) I didn’t see anything I liked, for some reason the market I was at only had fall bouquets that had been died strange colors. Weird. I opted for some fresh pears instead which will make my teenage bear happy—he can’t eat flowers!
This day is shaping up nicely and I like the pears. I’m quite happy with myself I have to say. Now for some domestic type things, I believe there’s about 20 loads of wash waiting for me in the basement and I’m thinking of finally putting on the new bedding that I’ve been collecting.
I’ve slowly been buying new goodies for our master bedroom. Cloudy billowy bedding can get expensive so I decided to stretch it out over a month or so. I think it’s really been several months now! Isn’t that how everyone does it? Anyway, I picked out a new shabby chic duvet from Target and all new pillows and a comforter from a discount store. I also splurged on a memory foam mattress topper after falling in love with the one we slept on while on vacation at the beach.
I wanted to wait until Mr. Handy put the headboard up and then put the bedding on. But we need to fit in a trip to Lowes to get something or other he needs for attaching the headboard. I just couldn’t stand to wait any longer. The freshly washed bedding has been waiting for me piled up beside the bed for too long now. I think it’s feelings were starting to get hurt! And there’s nothing like new bedding to cozy up in at the end of a long rainy day. I can hear the rain twinkling on the rooftop now.
