Rain drops in gumboots

For the first time in as long as I can remember, I woke up on a Monday morning and wasn't sure what I was going to do with my day.  I had planned to spend the morning taking photos but alas there was a storm brewing outside.  So instead I am sitting at the kitchen table with my laptop watching old Julia Childs cooking reruns (because I am rereading Julie & Julia for the millionth time and watched the movie again last night with Saba), have a spicy dahl soup simmering on the stove (not one of Julia's recipes!) and can't help but think about the fact that I should really be getting to the gym.  I think the first real day of Autumn has arrived today and I'm not sure I like it. 
Oh by the way what do you think of my new (old) winter hat?  I was actually going to sell it but when I put it on... well what can I say, I fell in love!  It is fur (I'm not sure what kind but it's very soft) which I usually make a point of avoiding, however I figure that this hat is so old that maybe I can make a relatively guiltless exception.

How was your Monday?


  1. Those rainboots are so needed right now. SoCal is raining like crazy!

  2. Here we are just coming to the end of summer, so to have the temperature drop and the rain start falling isn't something I get too excited about!
