Rainy days…

July 19, 2011

It’s summer here in Oregon and while much of our country is sweating it out in 100 degree plus heat, we are waiting out the rain. I love rainy days – the mellow pace, the many stories to be read, the projects to be had – but in the summertime, oh, in the summertime rain is just infuriating!

Now I am grateful for the chance not to water my garden or lawn, flowerbeds or pots but in the Pacific Northwest we have waited on baited breath for so, so many months for this sunshine we call summer. We wait and wait and dream of flowers, swimming suits, sunhats and sunscreen. We dream of long evenings on the patio in the heat – of being able to complain about the heat (for once!) as opposed to the rain.

And yet, here we are, another rainy summer day. I decided to make the best of it during nap time today and get a sewing project done. Sometimes the only thing help a rainy day along is a good sewing project.

What about you? What do you do on these rainy summer days?
