Good day



We woke up this morning to the gentle sound of a soft rain. There's a sidewalk below our bedroom window which catches every little slap, smack and plop of rain. I can smell the coffee brewing. *sighs* It's going to be a good day, I can tell already!

A rainy day can bring on all sorts of nice, quiet indoor activities. I love the sound. And with fresh coffee- perhaps a little reading in bed. I hope it's a wonderful day.

It's such a nice thing to wake up and hear calming sounds. Just sets the correct mindset for the day. I hope yours has continued to be a good as you anticipated.

It's been *so* hot this summer that the few times it's rained, I've just *gloried* in it. In Seattle of all places!

I also woke to the sound of rain today. It was refreshing. I haven't commented for a while, but I've been enjoying your blog as always.

I have a coffee shop to suggest for you. Our very good friend, Pete, owns a little coffee shop called In the Company of Thieves. Thieves for short. He serves fair trade & organic coffees and uses a french press to prepare them. He is a Madison native whom we met while he and my husband were classmates in Culinary School in Portland, Oregon.

The address is...
908 E Johnson St
Madison, WI 53703
