Rainy Days...

It isn't that I don't love a beautiful sun-filled weekend, but sometimes it's nice to have a rain-out. My plants were thirsty because I'm not one to get out and water. They appreciated Mother Nature correcting my negligence. I appreciated it, too.

Rainy weekends are the perfect excuse to stay inside and get things done. I actually cleaned out the refrigerator (what WERE all those science experiments?), made some edits to a story that's been sitting for a while (months), and read a good book (one of those guilty pleasure kinds). Had the sun been beaming, it would have seemed a sin to stay inside. End result? I'd be growling today about how the weekend went by so quickly without me getting a single thing accomplished.

I'm feeling good, not in small measure due to the number one favorite rainy day activity at our house...

Oh, I totally agree with you. We're finally getting the sun (I think it arrived for my birthday, yesterday) but now the peep is complaining about the plants needing water. Never happy, that one. She actually put the sprinkler on in my woodland garden today! It's gonna rain lots this weekend but she said that's too far away. What a peep!

Sounds like you had a good plan for your rainy day and the critters sure do look like they had a relaxing time of it.

I love a rainy day too! You can get a lot done inside and like you said, your plants get watered automatically!

We are staying indoors anyhoo cuz we have several feet of slush in the yard still. It isn't even fun to play in.

Yes, I love rainy days as long as I don't have to venture out. Even thunder and lightning doesn't bother me if I'm curled up on the couch with hot tea and a great book!

Sometimes I get more accomplished when it is dreary. I do prefer sunny and warm, though.

Glad the plants got watered! Mommy always hates having to water plants in summertime when all the mosquitoes are out. She always wishes for rain on those hot summer days!
