i want to know....

it's raining here today
the color of grey is everywhere
it's the kind of day that makes staying in your pajamas justified
i mean really, if the only thing you're going to do is sit and watch the football game and eat sandwiches with too much mustard, does it really matter what you're wearing. i think not.
do you want to read my favorite poem
i hope you do. it's quite perfect for a rainy grey day.
any day really, but especially today.
happy weekend


  1. happy weekend. i won't spoil your perfect rainy day. mine would be to curl up with books in my bed. but alas...to much to do.

  2. Rainy here too... :( That poem is just beautiful. Enjoy a cozy Saturday indoors!

  3. I really love the poem, Thank you and have a great pajama days !

  4. I can't believe I've never read this before.

  6. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day, enjoy!

  7. A very dreamy looking picture today. Nice!


  8. truth be told, i spend several days a week in my jammies, after i shower i just put a clean pair on if i am home and working, today was one of those days, making jewelry on my pajamas, watching harry potter movies, baseball and football on in the background.
    the poem is beautiful.

  9. Nothing like a cozy, rainy pajama day that we can just melt into...Enjoy it, beautiful Beth , and thank your for The Invitation.
    Big Love !

  10. Love your poem! The following poem was chosen as poem of the century. They read it to us at the children's school - it was the first time I heard it. Sad, but beautiful...


    When I die tomorrow
    tell to the trees
    how much I loved you.
    Tell it to the wind
    who climbs in the trees
    and falls out the leaves,
    how much I loved you

    Tell it to a child
    that's still young enough to understand.
    Tell it to an animal,
    maybe just by looking in it's eyes.
    Tell it to the houses of stone,
    tell it to the city,
    how much I loved you.

    But don't tell it to a human being
    He wouldn't believe you.
    He wouldn't want to believe that
    only a man only a woman,
    that a human loved another human
    like I loved you

  11. My 21-yr-old son just ran to the corner drugstore in his jammie pants, so, hey...anything goes today.

  12. Rainy days are the best days. Ones in which we get to hunker down and play. Love the image!!!

  13. I love this poem, Beth. Love it. Do you mind if I post it tomorrow?

  14. I had never read this before. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  15. I love rainy days... :happy sigh:

    And you're right. There's something wonderfully lazy about them. It makes indoors seem so cozy.

  16. Lovely, Beth.......the poem and the music. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

  17. This poem is amazing. Who wrote it? I would like to post it on Facebook. Hope that is OK.

  18. Ooooh, that is what love is really all about, yes?

    Your images are making me gasp this morning. It is grey outside here today, so you are my sunshine. :)


**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
