little post on a rainy day



Home on a rainy day. One of my boys is home, too (just a little under the weather). In between keeping him comfy, I'm fitting in some tinkering.

What do you like to do on rainy days?

I love your tinkering, Elyse! Yesterday was a rare rainy day in Idaho and it really helped me rest and recover! Ever tried resting and unpacking at the same time? HA! ♥

Cute tinkering projects! I love to do some cleaning on a rainy, cool day! I need to get busy finishing some projects that I started yesterday! Enjoy your day and I hope the little one feels better! HUGS!

Rainy days are perfect for puttering around the house, baking and tidying up OR for just cozying up with a cup of tea and a good book!

I hope your little boy feels better soon.

I long for a rainy day. Only humidity around here mixed with a little dust. :/ I just adore your pretty painted clothespins. I keep saying I am gonna give that a try but haven't managed to yet. So many ideas, so little time, where to begin. Hope your little guy is feeling much better. Wishing you all the best, Tammy

Hello:

I used to enjoy rainy days...until fibromyalgia come to my life: I felt more pain in rainy days. I almost would have wanted never rain again.
Now I feel better and with that I have recovered my joy for rainy days. I enjoy baking with my little daugther and sewing and watching old movies... sometimes I don't make anything: If I can watch the rain without pain I don't need anymore, that's enough for me.

Cariñitos.

Aloha Elyse;
Love your clothespins! Great how you tinker.
I like when it rains, must be a rainy season everywhere right now. It's been raining here in Hawaii too. Actually in my section of the island I get rain almost everyday, even if just a little.
I spend time in my "room" working on unfinished projects or if I have a hand-needlework project, I'll be in my recliner with my dog snuggled up to me as I bead or quilt.
Hope your son feels better.

PS.....thank you for all your sweet comments you leave me...you are such a sweetheart!

Today was a misty, rainy day at the beach. I laid a fire in the fireplace, lit some candles, wrote and posted on my blog. Now, I'm blog hopping. All in all a good day because I found your lovely blog and became a follower!

NanaDiana said...

You KNOW I love your little tinkerings. Seriously...you should sell those things...oh wait...you do! lol

I am waiting for tomorrow. MyHero and I are going to tinker away 10 days and I can't wait! hugs- Diana

Suz said...

Excellent tinkering, Elyse. When ir rains, I like to do mindless things...like punching out tags.

LaurieStar said...

Such pretty things! When it's rainy here (like it is again today) I like to curl up in bed and watch an English film like "Sense and Sensibility" -- even though I rarely do it. Usually I clean house or work on crafting!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Elyse, I LOVE a rainy day to putter around the house. Maybe do some baking, a nice dinner. Or a day of reading .
Sorry your little guy isn't feeling well.
Have a pretty day,
Kristin

Vintage Amethyst said...

All I ever what to do on rainy days is curl up with a mug of hot chocolate, perhaps a sweet treat too, snuggle under a blanket on the sofa & watch a favourite film.
Hope your little one is better very soon.
Love

I love a rainy day! I think they are perfect for reading, blanket/cat/sofa snuggling and movie watching.

Pansy Cottage Girl said...

Its raining here too! I cant believe this weather, it was over 100* last week and now it is a yucky mess.
On a rainy day I like to curl up with all my favorite magazines & books and a huge mug of coffee. Oh yeah, cookies too!

Mary Ellen said...

We are looking for some rainy days to come- it is a bit dry in Colorado these days which is a unusual!!

I had to come over and tell you the I won the Plow and Hearth Certificate and so will be getting my own little elfin door and accessories!!!! I am just so ecstatic as I would never have been able to have gotten these with out the win!! You little elf will have to come and visit my little elf when the quaint little cottage is all ready!!

Getting ready for a blogging friend to come to my house Friday- It's the first time Sally will be here and I don't have Fall up yet so I better get off this puter and get putsin around!

On rainy days I like to read blogs, thumb through decorating or gardening magazines, or sit under the pavilion. Sometimes I take said magazines and listen to the rain under the pavilion.

Ana said...

Hi Elyse,
I think these dramatic changes of weather here...first super hot, then cold and rainy, are causing people to feel under the weather. My daughter being one of them too. Anyways, I do love rainy days though...they always put me in a crafty creating mood. Hope your son feels better soon. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana
