Winter has made a comeback in central Texas today, like in much of the rest of the country. Our grand ambition of going jogging despite the cold was tempered by 20 mph winds and intermittent drizzle… and now sleet. Eh, some other day.
Instead, we’ve been doing laundry and relaxing inside the Casita.
It’s not as bad as you might think, being cooped up in a little RV on a bad weather day. My bed is comfortable. Both space heaters are running to keep the trailer nice and toasty. Chance is happy to have us inside all day to provide him with a warm lap and scritches. A new book on Kindle keeps me occupied. And Little Rock outside my window is showing it’s moody side, the towers of thick clouds and changing lighting providing a dramatic backdrop.
It’s, in a word, cozy. I have everything I need in this small space, and do not feel trapped.
Maybe in a little while, Julie and I will watch an episode of something on the computer and partake of a cup of hot cocoa with a dash of Bailey’s. Happy Hour will be enjoyed indoors this evening, no need to cancel on account of winter.
In fact, I’m reminded of snow days as a kid growing up in Wisconsin. Days like this are made for quiet enjoyment. For lounging around in pajamas and thinking no further ahead than what to have for dinner. For shrugging off the To-Do list, just for one day.
So now I’m going to go enjoy the rest of my vacation day. I hope you enjoy today’s pictures, they’re photos that didn’t quite make the cut in earlier posts that I’ve been waiting to find a use for, and today was that day.
I hope you all had a good holiday weekend, take care!
