Ah, those rainy days...

We awoke this morning to the pitter-patter of

rain drops

followed quickly by the feet of two little girls.

Another rainy day in Georgia.

Perfect day to spend inside near a fire and do nothing, right?

However, that didn’t happen. Instead our rainy day was spent:

*playing soccer with a 6-0 win!

*visiting the library for new books but also running into friends there, making a snack, and getting a balloon (always a hit)

*restocking the sad pantry

*taking a nap (one of my favorite things on a rainy day, well, any day)

*shopping for bathing suits (depressing)

Since our day was spent outdoors in the rain, dinner needed to be the same way. Yes, we are the crazy Yankees who grill year-round in the south.



As Dave would say, “I may be wet, but my martini is dry.”

I am, once again, behind on my blog reading and writing. I will try to improve my behavior. Life has been busy and, ahem, Facebook is addicting.

There I said it.

So glad my crazy husband isn't the ONLY one who will grill in snow, rain, hail, earthquakes, hurricanes...you get the idea. Our neighbors think we can't afford indoor appliances!

Dreading our first rainy day soccer game...Meggie has always done dance (indoors, thankfully) so this sports scene is a new one for me.

out in the rain today, eh? I didn't go anywhere until tonight and that was to get the boys haircut and dinner! Had to stay home with the sick kid (and other well kids)

No rain here, it was suppose to rain all day.

I did however manage to stay in my pj's all day long. (more than you wanted to know right)

I wish my dh would grill more. I do not like using the grill (we are in need of a new one) but love the food off of it.

We grill all year ... in the North. We've had awesome BBQs in the snow.

I have been blissfully away for a few days. I have enjoyed catching up this evening. I love the pic of grilling in the rain with the martini...classic! Enjoy that rainy day and all the simple pleasures they can bring!

Sounds like you were very productive in spite of the rain. I'm usually very sloth-like on rain days...luckily we don't have too many!

Love the grilling in the rain...

Hope the weeks brings sun and warm temps your way!

Sometimes I crave a rainy day, they seem to slow everything down a bit!
