Why does it always rain on me?

Dear rain,
Whilst i appreciate your recent appearance-thus ensuring i don't have to come home from a long day of work and water my flowers when all i want to do is snuggle with the cat-i think we're good now.

Dear rain,
How exciting that my foray into zucchinihood is fruitful-growth!  hurrah!-but i can't get close enough to inspect the specimen without standing in mud and getting drenched.

Dear rain,
It won't be long before the windows need to be kept shut and the air conditioner turned on-90 degrees this week?-so could you let up so i can sleep with a lovely breeze blowing?

Dear rain,
You know i do a lot of public speaking, right?  So let's not even talk about my hair.

In the past week, we've had 1 nice day...and this week is already starting off to look the same.  Thankfully the one nice day was Saturday since we had a yard sale.  I'm 177 dollars richer and slightly tanner, too!  Anyone go to any good sales or have their own this weekend?

Same story here. Lots of rain and storms. Although right now I have the windows open and it's wonderful!

I hoping some sunshine for you this week. We've been having some lovely days but getting up to the 90's already in the afternoons. Yay for a yard sale. I have been staying away from sales until I can get some of my clutter under control. hugs, Linda

Hooray for tan and money! I feel ya on the rain... we've had SO MUCH. One of my customers said that come July & August we'll be praying for this rain... and that's so true!

And P.S. How's the Irish Spring handling all the rain? ;) lol

My dad and both grandmas battled different types of cancer... so did my puppy and roxy ze ferret -- so if you ever want to chat - don't hesitate to email me girl!

The goodies in your garden will be perfect foods to incorporate into your diet as well (duh you were totally already gonna do that! haha) and just try to nix as many processed foods as ya can! Potato chips contain some unhealthy carcinogens and so does the lining in microwave popcorn bags. I can do more preventative posts if you'd like! just let me know =)

I'ts super rainy here too -- The april showers brought may showers.. balls!

Hope your week is off to a great start love! <3

The rain in Indiana is NOT helping the farmers get their planting done. While some areas are completely done with planting, others are too wet to even start. This has been a very bothersome spring!

I'm sorry about your rainy days. I love them! They're my favorite nap days... but since I have to work, I don't get to nap!!!

What a cute picture of that sleepy cat looking like it's hanging out in the rain! :) Thanks for stopping by my 'place' this morning - and for the sweet words about my tray. You heard me right - they don't sell spray paint in the city of Chicago...I was horrified and annoyed as all get out when I first discovered this a year ago. I either have to drive to the suburbs, order it off amazon or wait until I visit my good old KY home...all because of graffiti - I wish people would get a better hobby so they wouldn't infringe on mine! ;)

I just love this! The cat illustration is such a creative picture. Reading this made me feel good, like on a comfy raining day. I could almost smell the rain aroma coming into the windows. Not to mention the sound of listening to the pitter patter. Thks for the pleasant break in my day. And for commenting on my Painting of the horses. ;-) It's me:

That one nice day was my graduation, but the humidity did something else to my hair.
