Here's what I love:

. . . . rainy Saturdays.

Today we are feeling the effects of the outer edge of the outer edge of Hurricane Bill; for us this means a cool, steady, day-long rain.

Rainy Saturdays around our house mean curling up with a bowl of popcorn and a good book.

Of course sometimes the book gets read, and sometimes it doesn't . . . but that's one more thing to love about a rainy Saturday.

Hope you're enjoying your Saturday -- whatever the weather!


  1. Loving this post; especially the image of "the sleeping reader" because this is what Carol usually looks like when she reads.

    I did a wedding Saturday in Fort Belvoir Chapel and just as I began the opening prayer, the storm visited in a dramatic way. My gospel was the teaching of Jesus: when the winds blow hard and the rain pours down, the house built only on rock will stand! You can imaginge the homily and the engagement of the folks assembled in a house built on the Rock of God's love!

  2. Rainy Saturdays are the best, Liz ... I agree! Your comment on my BBQ sandwiches post made me laugh -- sorry to cause a run to the store ;). The slow cooker is my friend, believe me.

    Have a great week!
