rainy day fun

As I may have mentioned, it has been raining almost daily since May. I recently contributed a rainy day craft idea to a wonderful online resource for parents based in Providence, called Kidoinfo.com and was told it would be posted the next rainy day. Well that day is today. Here is the link to the article if you'd like to check it out: Rainy Day Art

Just add rain


Here's how Mommy plays when it rains. I (re)hung my tea towel from Cindy at Cute Pink Stuff by some twine and my clothespins. I like this better than how I had it before.

Have a nice day ... rain or shine!

Look it at the bright side: you sure do a lot more when it rains than when it's too hot!

I've been doing the rainy dance daily but after weeks of rain, we now have a drought. Looks like everyone in your household spent a productive day, despite the rain.

I think my kids would enjoy that art project and we are in rainy season right now so it rains almost daily for a few hours.

What a delightful post. I love the line "Just add rain". This looks like a wonderful rainy day project. We had so much rain yesterday that I had floods of rain, looking like a waterfall cascading down the garden steps.

Did I say garden steps? Expect your miniature in the mail shortly. Have a fun day, Oh no, more rain here.
