Cloudy and a Chance of Meatballs

The Rainy Day by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

Soccer finals cancelled!  Paper completely drenched on the front drive.  I love still, steady rain on a lazy weekend, but golly - why today?  Blow. Boo hoo.
Just as well we arranged for the badges and plaques to be given out at the school assembly yesterday.
The lovely G's are having the whole team over to their fabulous, enviable new digs this afternoon for an end of season celebration.  It was meant to be a BBQ and swim in the pool.  Now it will be indoor games and a pot roast.
