A Rainy Day

I love the rain, even if it does make traffic epic and even if I have manged to lose all my umbrellas since moving. I like the way the city gets grey and cold and misty and it feels almost like a different city altogether. Most of my vacation traveling has always been done in the dead of winter or the more affordable shoulder season and so when I think of cold, grey skies and spitting rain I think of Prague on February, Poland in October, Paris in March. For 349 days a year Los Angeles is sunny and bright and the few rainy days we have are such a departure from the ordinary that everything feels changed.

And I think a little part of me has vacation fever, or maybe just cabin fever. Or fever fever. Mostly I'm just glad it's Friday so I can have a weekend to myself, to sleep late (or sleep at all), to drink coffee in my pajamas and not have to talk to another blessed soul. It's supposed to rain all weekend, too. Perfect. Perfect for hibernating and knitting and daydreaming of vacation.
