after the rain

honestly, i could use some proper sunshine.
it's been a week.
my moods are very susceptible to the weather.
and all this grey is doing me no favors.

we had a glimpse of sunshine late this afternoon.
i brought out chairs, tablecloth, picked some flowers as a centerpiece,
brought some glasses of black currant cordial and a bit of white wine and sparkling water.
we enjoyed about 20 minutes of that golden light.

my family sent me for sausages and started a fire in the new little fireplace at the foot of sabin's treehouse.
by the time i got back, it had clouded over and begun to rain.
and it only took me about 10 minutes.

the forecast for tomorrow doesn't look good.
but i live in eternal hope that they're wrong.
