Joy 54/82: Rain

There's a storm coming in and it looks like rain ... maybe even snow ... for the weekend.  Normally I would be disappointed at not being able to get outside for the weekend but today I am delighted.  For two weeks now, we've been redoing my back yard.  I've had some great help and they've done most of the heavy lifting but they have other jobs and in order to move the project along, I've worked like a laborer.  Last night we were sanding the pavers until after dark in order to get them set for the rain to come ... think 4 solid hours of bending over.  My body doesn't quite understand what's happening.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to being inside all warm and cozy with a hot cup of tea and a good book for the entire weekend.  My house mate calls it:  Eat, sleep, read ... repeat.  I think I'm going to take a hot shower, put on my jammies and not take them off till Monday.

About the image:  This is an ice-storm in Arkansas.  I hope it does not look like this here this weekend.

  1. I will wish for you a gentle, soothing rain; the kind to which you can fall asleep.

    Have a good weekend. Rest up that body!
