Last week was drenched in rain and storms followed by a beautiful sunshine filled weekend. We were so excited to see the sun we stayed outside all weekend and have the sunburns to prove it. And now it seems we’re back to the drizzle, damp, chilly air. Week after week of rain starts to get old—I’m over it. To help get me through, it’s all tea and soup, snugly sweaters and rain jackets, and candles and cozy blankets. Yesterday I even enjoyed a cup of coffee with a doughnut smack dab in the middle of the afternoon. All this rain must really be getting to me! Another week of drizzle and I may not be able to zip up the ol’ skinny jeans! Not to mention, I’m starting to wonder where I’ll be hiding the muffin top once the sun returns.
So yesterday I allotted myself some time out in the garden. But with all the soggy mess and wet grass, I opted for a bit of a pillow shuffle and play on the sun porch instead. Pillow shuffling and candles can really make all the difference during these long bouts of dreary weather. Sometimes a tiny bit of joy is all it takes to turn around a dreary day. And candlelight and foofing always seem to do the trick. Are you with me?
I grouped some of my taupe, blues, and whites together out here on the sun porch for a fresh look. It has a simple, clean feel that I’m digging and the candles really help add a dose of warmth and romance with all the clouds and rain.The forecast is actually calling for another rainy week to come. I might need to replace my pillows and candles for wine! lol
Thanks for visiting! See you soon.
