|ACEO...bet they are happy!|
Ok, this post is not about being sick, unless of course I am referring to the constant rain we have had for the past week. Yeah, I am sick of that. The rain we have been receiving without end has stranded motorists, flooded roads and sent the nearby Rappahannock River over its banks.
The term under the weather actually refers to seasickness (when ancient sailors would go below deck to get out of the weather when not feeling well) and if it doesn’t stop raining soon being at sea might not be too far a stretch.
I know all the cute little phrases about may flowers and liquid sunshine since my husband, the perennial optimist, keeps coming up with new ones.
As for me I will be content to just get “under the weather,” meaning my basement studio and paint, flowers and trees and sunshiny days. For now, that may be the only place where the sun will shine.
If it doesn’t stop soon, well, I’m almost ready to lead a mutiny and maybe…c’mon you knew it was coming… walk the plank.
