There’ll be days like this

Home at last, I haul in the grocery bags, swallow a couple of extra-strength Tylenol, put the entire Van Morrison play list on the stereo, and spend the afternoon roasting vegetables and making pasta sauce, salad, and a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Outside, the rain comes down in sheets. I am singing “Days Like This,” belting out the song. The kitchen fills with good smells.

  3. Such a coincidence, I’ve been listening to Van M.. quite a bit the past ten days! In the car or I listen while I am surfing the web. This is currently playing in the background, ” I’ll Be Your Lover, too” I even sent the link to to a friend,
    last week because the lyrics and sound are so great….signed Christie, ” a brown eyed girl”

  4. Smile-inducing. When you get tired of the rain, please send it our way. I think California’s reservoirs are beginning to forget what water feels like.
