We Love a Rainy Night
More precisely, Cafe Drake HRV has always required at least two rainy days per week for maximum comfort and succor. At least if one has the luxury of being inside. A constant light rain has fallen on the Hudson Valley since mid-morning and we only had to brave the mild elements once for essential errands . . . dog food, cat food, grape seed oil, the wine store. While we cleaned the house and organized storage spaces the animals slept through the light patter of water drops, rising now and then to stretch and reposition themselves for the 4th nap of the day. Pasta and tossed salad for an easy dinner. Early to bed with a martini and The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton. Like we needed an excuse.
