It's raining. It's pouring.

It has been a weekend to be spent in the house. But instead, a lot of it has been spent out in the weather!

Steve took the boys to our church's fathers and sons campout last night. They decided not to sleep over, but instead came home to get warm and dry and sleep in their own beds. Then it was up and back out to get some breakfast back at camp. The morning entertainment was watching everyone who pulled a trailer down into the meadow try to get it back out. Mud diggin' and campin'. Does a boy's life get any better? My sons were thoroughly impressed!

This afternoon, Steve & I visited Home Depot to price summer yard and home projects. A fence. Fixing up the bathroom. Redoing the original wood floors in my early 1900's house. Oh my. After thinking and talking and walking and pricing I came home and took a nap. My mind was on overload. So much work. I *like* work, but hate the unknown, never-done-before and don't-want-to-fail-at projects. I am a perfectionist. The nap did me good.

Then back outside to take a walk in between the showers. We got caught in the rain and decided to just enjoy it. With my jacket hood down and glasses off, I just enjoyed the clean scents, the cool spray on my skin, and the conversation with my Sweetie. With every other sane person spending time inside during the rain storm, it seemed like we were the only people on earth. Very, very nice.

Then back home with a warm shower and dry pjs. Life doesn't get any better than that, does it?

Then a quick note here to you, and time to get everyone in bed. I hope that your day has been just what you've needed.


  1. Sounds lovely to me.
    I don't think I got out in the rain at all yesterday!

  2. Glad you took time to enjoy your walk in the rain.

    Smart guys coming home to sleep. I don't blame them one bit.

    ♥ Joy

  3. I love getting caught in the rain!

    I would LOVE to live in an early 1900's home! That has always been a dream of mine....John not so much.

  4. That sounds like a wonderful time in the rain!!!

    Someday I hope to have a garden. Right now my backyard qualifies for some sort of purgatory. I cringe every time I go out there. OY!
