The Remains of the Day December 18, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Nature.

RWS_Tarot_01_MagicianOur plans for the day have gone up in a puff of smoke.

Or rather, they’ve disappeared in the plop of rain drops, steadily falling.

Don’t believe it, have just written those very words on suzicate’s blog :O

nrhatch - December 18, 2010

Really? That’s so cool!

Where’s suzicate’s blog? I want to see.

nrhatch - December 18, 2010

Found it!

Just as “Morning has Broken” here . . . with the sun making its first appearance of the day. 🙂

Yes rain drops have changed our plans too but a cozy day inside is a great change:):)

I’ve decided to engage in some holiday crafts!

Love the “Musical notation for a ‘Plop'” illustration. 🙂

Me too!

I am dying to see that film again now!

nrhatch - December 18, 2010

Awesome film and performances.

Yes here as well. I didn’t get to go decorate the little tree on the trail. Maybe tomorrow. Darla, Miss Kitty and I had a fabulous three hour nap though!

How purr~fect!

I’m delighted with how our day unfolded ~ different than planned, but enjoyable just the same.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, rain can put a damper on things, as long as it’s light, it better than snow! People get crazy around here when it snows! BTW, that is one of my all time favorite movies! A.H. and E.T. were perfect for those roles.

nrhatch - December 18, 2010

You’re welcome. Enjoyed the visit and your flowing words.

I agree ~ I much prefer rain to snow, sleet, and ice. And the movie is . . . wonderful.

Some people would have sat inside and cursed the rain for their ruined plans…glad you’re one to pick up and move on (life’s so much better when you can do that!)

One thing made it easier . . . Friday was a gorgeous sunny day and I spent five hours outside basking in the sunshine. That helped me not feel too sorry for myself.

I did feel bad for the artists and artisans who were involved in the events we had planned to attend:

Christmas on Bridge St.
Where’s Woody Art Sale
Luminary Walk at DeSoto Memorial

All were outside events and I’m sure that the crowds were sparse due to the raindrops. 😦

Loved this – you paint a beautiful image with your words…. 🙂

nrhatch - December 19, 2010

Thanks. I titled the piece, Remains of the Day, before writing a word ~ knowing that life is what happens when we’re busy making plans. When our plans gets washed out, it’s up to us to enjoy the remains of the day.

I was a bit surprised where the post ended up ~ with a link to a movie about the inevitability of change.

Where did you find ‘plop?’

nrhatch - December 19, 2010

After I wrote the piece, it was one of the recommended photos in the media gallery (powered by Zemanta).

Who knew that “plop” had a musical notation of its own? 🙂
