I Don't Need Much...

I don't need much to feel good. Not happy, but content...
Maya is finally asleep, after a day of much running and coughing. My husband watches TV, my son is in his room (nothing new here) and I am alone in the living room, with my new laptop and a pot of strawberry yogurt. As the forecast for tomorrow is rain, rain and more rain, I've put my laundry to dry here, in the room, on a drying rack and the room smells deliciously of clean clothes. I sigh with content as I anticipate the few hours of reading I have ahead of me. I intend to start the fourth book of Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files". And maybe later I'll drink a cup of ginger and hibiscus tea. What else could a mortal like me ask for ?

I sure wish we had some of that rain over here. We had five minutes of heavy rain on Friday followed by an hour of light rain, and that was about it. Too many sunny days get me depressed.
So you are enjoying the Jim Butcher books?

Oh my, who took my rain?

I love the proper autumn/winter! I like having a fire, reading a good book, while the hose smells of roasted chestnuts and mulled wine!

Hi Simcha, yes, I enjoy Jim Butcher's books. I like that each book introduces different characters, and I also like Harry Dresden a lot.
Hevel, as a European born person, I can understand what you're saying...Don't get me started on the real autumn/winter subject...But, what the heck, we have to be grateful with what we have, so I'm OK with the israeli rainy season. I just hope it'll rain a lot!
