Rainy day rambles

Today it is raining and gloomy in Cape Town. Since I did not stay in bed this morning (though I wish I had), I am currently day-dreaming about escaping the office and going to a cosy coffee shop. Once there, I'll find a nice spot by a window and spend a few hours reading a book, scribbling notes & people watching (Its really been ages since I did that)...*le sigh*...Anyway, I hope the weather gets sunnier soon, I am quite ready to put away my winter clothes now.

Tonight I plan to do a little exercise (a rainy jog maybe?), make some yummy comfort food, watch an episode of Gossip Girl (season 4) and possibly paint my nails red. I have also been thinking that maybe I should bake some oatmeal cookies later, but I doubt i will get around to it.

How are you today?

  3. Well, what's the odds? I'm about to watch gossip girl (episode 2 season 4) while painting my nail red so that the time spent still seems productive somehow ;)

    Lovely post btw!

  4. I would love to escape from my desk & go to a coffee shop & daydream for a few hours. It's sunny here in NY but it's getting dark really early now. Maybe I'll go for a jog too. Thanks for the lil pick-me-up today! =)

  7. I love spending rainy afternoons at coffee shops. I have to admit that I end up more engrossed in people watching then reading my book.

  8. It has been raining in my area for a few days, and I have missed it. I'm sure after three weeks of it I will be singing for it to go away and come again another day. ;-) But for now I will happily drink my hot chocolate while reading a book (or textbook, whatever I need to study for). :)

    TONIGHT (my favorite tv show) THE BIGGEST LOSER BEGINS! I am much too excited. :)
