Soggy Sunday

I had just a small window of time, but I got in the flower beds and finished putting mulch down on a path.  And then the rain came.  I don’t mind so much because now I can curl up with a book.  A great way to spend an afternoon before getting back into the grind.  What’s your favorite way to spend a soggy Sunday?

Tess Morrison weaves the nuances of northern Wisconsin small-town living with rich, heartwarming stories, finding humor amidst the struggles of life where love conquers and laughter heals.
“The whispers of fate are calling…” – Tess
