It’s a Trifle Damp…

Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.  ~Kin Hubbard

So true. Today it’s rain, rain, rain. Rained through the night and it’s still coming down this afternoon. (Another good quote from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: “The best thing one can do when it’s raining is…let it rain.”)

Instead of the work around the yard and flowerbeds that desperately needs to be done, we’ll all be spending a cozy evening inside. Seems like it will be a good soup-making or cookie-baking evening. Or perhaps a relax-with-a-cup-of-tea and magazine evening. Then again, I could always reorganize the coat closet or put away the summer things…

What do you do when rain puts a damper on (ha ha) your outdoor chores?

I like to bake and curl up with a magazine on rainy days!

Another great quote about the rain. I believe it was Mark Twain that said: “Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it.”

I also love to bake on a rainy day – take a nap or read. I also love to weave or spin on a rainy day – it makes me feel more creative!

I like to have a nice fire in the fire place, oil lamp burning, bread baking in the oven while reading a good book or surfing the web. A cup of coffee and a slice of that fresh bread. We do most of our baking on the weekends, the weekdays are just “out of control”.
