It’s been a wet May so far. Last week it rained, hailed, and the winds came blowing across the region with a ferocity that knocked over wooden swing sets, set limbs free from trunks, and moaned as it snaked around the corner. Today, clouds heavy with rain, linger like a low, gray ceiling. What to do on a rainy day?
Stare out the window at naked stalks of dandelion sporting white pored heads among grass grown too long because mowing wet grass is never a good idea.
Keep the Weather Channel on in the background hoping for a glimmer of sunshine in the forecast.
Grab tweezers and do a little facescaping. Shape the brows, check for unwanted hairs or stiffies, as I adoringly call them, on the chin.
Slap a white muddy face mask on after careful plucking. Write a blog post in the fifteen minutes it takes for the stuff to dry and pull the skin tighter.
Sigh a lot.
Ponder article and query ideas. Check the list, check it twice and decide to create an organized, informational spreadsheet in Excel.
Watch the tops of trees wave to-and-fro in a wind dance.
Put headphones on and listen to a Sting CD, Sacred Love. Muse over the song Stolen Car and what a naughty little story it is. (Yes, I know the Weather Channel is still on, too.)
Check the MLB site to find out how the Indians and Red Sox are faring. Yikes! Both in 4th with the Sox 5 games out and the Indians 9. *sad face*
Look up dates to go to a Mud Hens game.
Become a voyeur and watch the Cape Cod cams to see what’s going on in my favorite place.
Finally…stop procrastinating and get busy on this rainy day in May.
