Back Issues and Rainy Days

Okay, I’m ready for some sunshine now.  It has been rainy and cloudy for so many days now I can’t remember when I saw the sun last.  I really shouldn’t complain because this little piece of New Hampshire has been very dry and can surely use the rain.  However, I want some sunshine.

Saw this along the trail
Yesterday, I stayed inside all day. Gene went over to Wal-Mart for an hour or so just to walk around.  He pulled a muscle in his back a couple days ago and walking helps.  On Wednesday, he did a lap or two around the campground a few times during the day--whenever there was a break in the rain.  He felt better yesterday morning and wanted to go for a longer walk.  Since there’s no mall around here, Wal-Mart was the next best thing.

Today, with the chance of rain down to about 10 percent we planned for a short walk.  Wouldn’t you kno--it was drizzling as we were getting ready to leave, but decided we’d had enough of staying inside and would just walk in the rain.  We drove over to the Rail Trail for our walk since Gene didn’t feel it too wise to try to hike on these steep and rocky trails around here.  We’ll save that for tomorrow.  We enjoyed being out and it only sprinkled for a few minutes after we got started.

This afternoon, we went back to town to the coffee shop.  One of our favorite things to do.  There is a very small bookstore attached, but instead, we found on a table in the coffee shop a picture book of the White Mountains and another of the Appalachian Trail.  We looked at the pictures and sipped our coffee.  It was a very nice afternoon--a great thing to do on a cloudy, rainy day.

It really feels like fall today.  The temperatures were only in the 50s when we got up this morning and, with the cloudy skies all day, only got up to about 65 this afternoon.  We’ve had the fireplace on several times today.

Well, that’s about all there is to tell for today.  Not much happening other than trying to stay dry and longing for sunshine.  Tomorrow, the forecast predicts sunny skies with a zero chance of rain.  I think we’ll be on the trails.
