Doesn't this picture remind you of Christopher Robin? Dang, I should buy her some galoshes.
Because she'd be freakin' adorable in them, and also, because it rains a lot here in our own little woods.
I don't like the rain very much. It makes me gain weight. No, really. It does.
Because, when it's raining outside, I don't feel much like getting out of bed. So, instead of getting up and moving, I do the bare minimum and then sit around (or lie around) reading a book and drinking hot chocolate. And each day that I do this, I inevitably gain 5 pounds.
I told you rain makes me gain weight.
It's rather unfortunate, really.
Rain is also pretty cold. And wet. And a little bit dark and dreary on the side. And I'm a little bit alarmed at the rate at which daylight hours are disappearing! Just last week, I swear it was still light at 8 pm, and now it's getting dark around 7:15. And you all saw the darkness of our morning bus stop. It's only October, and we're still on Daylight Savings Time!
Not Bria, though.
She rather likes the rain.
(And, I suppose Chloe is prepared should it rain all day and flood the streets. Please remind me to retire those jeans she is wearing. She is looking a little bit like JoJo's Circus about now. Yikes!)
PS These pictures make me happy. Happy enough that I'll forgive the rain for a while.
