look out the streaked window with complacency

Hello, September. I'm so glad you're here, and with you, the onset of autumn.  This Uncertain Summer is all but over. Next week I fly to Canada, then Chicago, for training at my new job. Tomorrow I'll be FIFTY. So  - yeah - we're turning the corner...

After months and days of hellish heat, autumn blew in a few nights ago on the back of a storm, and has settled in to stay awhile. Daytime temps are cool, nights are downright chilly. It's been raining on and off since Sunday, and I couldn't be happier about it.

Bring on the cozy...


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

Love how you describe the change of weather, "... autumn blew in a few nights ago on the back of a storm ..."!

Nothing beats cozy.
