Rain on a cottage roof

“How was the weather?” people ask when we return from our cottage. They assume we would wish for nothing but sunshine and warmth.

But wet weather is a wonderful part of vacation life too. Rainy days are perfect for cocooning with a good book, or for settling in for a nap.

There are few sounds more soothing than rain on a cottage roof . . .

Photos are way more dramatic is wet weather too.

    As a writer AND a reader, rain on the roof is a signal for cocooning, so cozy. Some family members got together to buy me a wall fountain for the patio out back. Now the trickle there is soothing. I know fall will bring more tolerable weather for enjoying this.

    Thanks, Arlene, for providing comfort today. 🙂

      Oh, I love a water fountain. Just thinking about it makes me feel more relaxed. I used to have a small one in my office, but it got broken in a move. I think I need to replace it, now that you mention it. How wonderful that would be.
