Oh, hello! I was scolded recently that you had to make your own sandwiches in here, so here’s a plate of brownies to make up for it.
I’m sitting at work, here at the Gas ‘n Sip, and it is pouring rain out. It’s gray. It looks cold. All the trees and grass are dead. This is day 3 of rain and it’s expected to continue for at least 3 more.
It’s one of those days where you feel blue, but not for any good reason. It’s a good day for a nap. And to be home on the sofa with a snuggly blanket and a familiar movie. If you have a fireplace, it’s a day for lighting a fire and grabbing a book, settling in for a good read. It’s definitely a day to NOT be at work, desperately trying to avoid doing the work you have to do.
Today, I seem to have turned procrastination into an art form. There is something that I really do have to get done, and yet…. here I am sitting and looking out at the rain. I’m thankful that it isn’t snow. If this were snow, I think we would have 3 feet by now.
On this gray day, think about what you might be doing. What’s your favorite way to survive a yucky, introspective day?

First of all DELICIOUS brownies so you are forgiven for the sandwich debacle.
Second of all, I have many days like this. I am all about getting lost in a book to escape the inside of my own head. I love to climb into my big chair with Gus, my book and some coffee (or a martini, depending HEH) and just go somewhere else. If i’m not in the mood to read, I sometimes hit the opposite end of the spectrum and go on a cleaning binge. Much more active, but just as good at emptying the head.
Third of all….POOH!!!! *swoon*
