So what do you (I) do when it’s pouring rain?

Well – number 1: get on all your Gore-tex and take the dog out to the back 40. Come back and hose down the dog and towel her off.

Then the indulgences: first stop – the Cedar Farmer’s Market for Red Fife Bread from Bodhi Bakery (amazing) and enough freshly picked organic lettuces to give me at least three meals and/or a dozen lettuce sandwiches. Yes – lettuce sandwiches are a thing.

Next – drive to a little house in the south end where a mushroom picker has freshly picked chanterelles for me – 2 pounds worth! Guess what I’m having for dinner tonight? Yeah – mushrooms and Red Fife. All of them slathered in butter. This is my birthday eve dinner and I am so worth it!

Then – on a rainy Sunday afternoon after a nap and fabulous Trader Joe’s chocolate, what’s a girl to do? Well – the movies of course and you have to know it was Downton Abbey all the way. And the cool thing? I got there and they had one seat left. Seriously. I got the last seat in the house and it was in the front row right near the centre which is where I wanted to be anyway. And it gets better. Reclining leather plush seats. I had no idea this was the theatre standard these days (goes to show how long it’s been).

And the movie was awesome – exceeded expectations. Maggie Smith and her zingers alone were worth the price of admission.

And then back home and a kind, loving and beautiful phone call.

My heart feels safe.
