so after yesterday's perfect day, and me blogging about it, today is cold and rainy. ah, the 'joys' of autumn. i took the recycling today, got bentos from the supermarket (for lunch) and even had an hour or so for cross stitch without the kids this morning. after lunch we got the kids to take their naps, so even more 'quiet time' for me! woo hoo! even so, i am already missing summer, though i am sure we have a few more warm days in store for us. i'm hoping. wishing. anyway, sukiyaki for dinner (our first nabe of the season!) and then a hot bath before bed! rain, rain, rain.
