There’s no getting around it. It’s a gloomy morning. It’s not raining hard enough for me to settle in with a mug of tea or a good book and actually wallow in the gloom. When it’s not really doing anything outside, that seems excessively over-indulgent.
So for now I am soldiering through, trying to pretend it’s just another day, which it is. My area certainly needs rain, and I don’t begrudge any actual days of rain, but when it’s not raining and is still this gloomy, doesn’t that seem excessive, too? Get on with it, already! Rain or don’t rain but let’s not just gloom along for days on end.
