Rainy Days

Now that the rains have started and the days are wet and gray, I’m homesick for the area around Hadrian’s Wall—and all the space and greenery and sheep.
Somehow the rain seemed cozier in England.  There was always the chance of tea (Earl Gray, Darjeeling, blackcurrant), and sandwiches (prawn mayonnaise, chicken and sweet corn, cheese and onion, egg and watercress), and tempting liqueurs (damson gin, ginger wine, elderflower wine).  Happy chances, happy rambles getting there.
