Magical Moment 386, "Emily's Cozy Spot"

On rainy days like today, I like to cozy up on the couch. I guess Emily the cat has her own place to cozy up. Having a dog and cat, I find animal hair in my carpet, on my clothes, and all over my furniture. The bathroom sink was the one place I thought was safe, until today...

(Although, she might think it's raining inside, when I turn the water on...)

The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency.

I know exactly the kind of day you're describing. They're "delicious" once in awhile. Loved the kitty in the sink. Precious.

I think you're referring to a 'mental health day' ! ;-)

Great shot. It's said that if you want to know where the best seat is in the house, just move the cat - but it doesn't apply here.

I always wanted a dog and cat that get along, but have never had them.

I also liked gentle rain days when I taught. It provided a conducive atmosphere for learning.
