Cozy Rain

It rained so hard this afternoon Mum thought that she would soon see boats floating past her window at work. I am keeping dry resting here by the fire with Ozzy's squeaky Cat, Mum let me have it since there are no bits of leg, ear or tail left for me to eat. Mum found a wonderful quote below that sums up our thinking exactly.

" The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency." ~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons

Ozzy napping by the fire; Mum thinks he looks angelic. - Whatever.

I like cozy rain too. It's definitely the best. Especially when my humans build a fire in the fireplace.

Awwwwh, you look so cute snoozing. We had bad rains here on Tuesday. Over 2 1/2 inches. We think we've had enough for now, hehehe.
Have a good week!!

Hi Nugget & Ozzy,

Yeap, rainy days are nice to sleep in . I just don't like the stuff leading up to the rain, the sky getting dark, lightning and thunder...


Hi Nugget,
Its been raining here too and we stay inside snuggled up on the couch. Its not cold enough to put the oil heater on but when it is mum and dad will have to have the cord repaired because Dixie in her puppy days managed to chew the plug off!!
Stay warm and dry,
Jazz and Dixie

Rainy Days are good for being lazy!
