Rain ,Rain, Go Away

This is what I want to see. Sandy Beach and Sun. It's raining and raining and raining...I am developing webbed feet and fingers. Of course, the grass and flowers, etc. love all the moisture. I suppose I could dig a hole in the garden step into it and pretend to be a plant. Hmmm...what flower would I be? Lavender (my favourite scent) Daisy, Peony, Petunia, Forget-Me-Not, Wild Rose. I think Wild Rose.
Well, all this rain is forcing me to stay inside and do .....aggghh! housework. Nah! House work is Evil and should be banned! I did put some bread in the Breadmaker this am and the house smells good. There are some scrapbook projects I could finish. Well I'll get off my leeetle you know what and go do something. Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.
Some definitions of Rain: (courtesy of Knitwych on Ravelry)

Rainsneeze: Not enough to qualify as a shower, but enough to make the dogs go “WHAT? Pee in the rain!???? We’re calling PETA!”

Rainfart: Is when the skies darken oh so ominously but only three drops of rain fall and they evaporate before they hit the ground.

Rainpsych: Which happens when the skies darken oh so ominously, thunder rumbles in the distance, and the skies flash with lightning, prompting you to race outside to roll up vehicle windows, snatch the laundry off the line, pull the patio chairs up under the eaves so they won’t blow away, and then nothing happens at your house.

Are you SURE these definitions are in the dictionary, Mar? I'm almost afraid to check mine and find out that they ARE in there! :o)

We got just a smattering of rain, but we need more...could you send some our way so Michael will stop leaving the water for the garden on all night long??!

So glad to hear you love lavendar...it is a recommended scent for soothing and calming!

blessings and hugs,

I hope that your rain diapates soon so you can go and play in the sand or garden or just sit and enjoy the sunshine.
I'm strange as I love the rain. I don't have any idea why except that it makes me feel kind of cozy!
I told you I was strange!

I love rain too, like Diana it makes me think warm and cozy, but at the same time I want some sunny days in between...

Keep smiling!
