I Love A Rainy Day

It started raining Thursday afternoon and by Saturday afternoon an inch eighty had accumulated in the rain gauge.  A beautiful spring rain.

Since getting married and moving away from home if I have any exciting or fun news I usually call home.  My Dad likes to remind me “Rob, no one likes a bragger.”  I feel the need to brag not about the rain but about J.

When I got home from work on Friday J said “I need to talk to you.”  I sat back in my chair crossed my arms and thought OH NO; What’s Wrong!  J proceeded to tell me that the living room and bedroom were vacuumed and he swept the bathroom, kitchen and entryway.  I jumped out of my chair and give him a Thank You kiss!  I also told him that I had noticed he gathered up all the trash and took it to the burn barrel. 

It is the little things in life that mean the most.

Sweet Peas are in bloom.


Saturday morning I did some baking.  I tried a new muffin recipe, had some buttermilk that needed used up and made bars.  Recipes coming soon.  I also got a lot of laundry done and squeezed in a nap!

Saturday afternoon the sun came out and I opened the windows.  After doing chores in the rain the house smelled a little stuffy kind of like wet muddy clothes and stinky little dog. 

I ventured out and took a few pictures.

The spring wheat is up!


 Heading out to chore.  We want to beat the next rain cloud  headed our way!

Does your husband do housework to surprise you!  How do your crops look?

    Isn’t it fun to be spoiled?! You are one lucky girl, but we both knew that already! *wink* I haven’t gotten any suprise housework lately, mostly surprise “let’s go on a little drive/adventure/walk and not talk about your parents.” Which is great for now.
    I’m not qualified to comment on crops in general, but I can tell you my garden is NOT planted! It is planned though; I’m planting tomatoes, habaneros and pumpkins.

      Glad to hear your garden is not planted. I am not the only one! I am still in the do I want to do this stage. As I was riding the 4-wheeler doing chores this morning I thought “It is to cold to be a little plant outside.” Sunshine may get me more motivated.

      Sounds like fun!
      I think an inch and a half of rain and sun would be excellent. I am starting to need SUNSHINE, so does J, the cattle and crops!
      I <3 You too!

    I’m with you–I love rainy days too. They’re very soothing to me and make me feel like I have permission to relax and do something for myself instead of housework and such. Don’t you just about hyperventilate from inhaling the scent of fresh rain? I do. The air always feels so good too.
