A Rainy Day

It's a rainy day in Knoxville - little chilly. I didn't really want to get out of bed this morning - it was so nice and warm.

We snuggled. We made breakfast. While we made breakfast, the maintenance guys came to inspect the fire extinguisher and change the AC filter. They didn't have a good answer for why the smoke detectors go berserk for hours after I've used the oven. I was disappointed. Jon finally detached both of them at 8:30 pm last night. They were still beeping. I turned the oven off at 4:30.

We bundled up to take the doggies outside. My windbreaker will fit around me and Gav in the wrap and still zip up. It's helpful on days like today. The puppies don't much like the rain. Gavrel doesn't much care. Not much fazes him.

I feel like I should venture out to get toilet paper, but it's pretty yucky out there. I really just want to make another cup of tea and go back to bed. Maybe there is time for both today. I'm hoping that the dark and the white noise of the rain will help Gavrel nap well. He only napped for 45 minutes yesterday because they were testing the smoke alarms in all the buildings around us. He wouldn't take another nap, either. Made for a rough afternoon. If Gav naps today, maybe I can too.

I didn't sleep very well last night. Or the night before. Crazy dreams, restless sleep, awake at odd times. I really didn't want to get out of bed this morning - it was so nice and warm. It's a rainy day here in Knoxville.
