Hello dear cyber friends,

Oh, we've had a beautiful day today. It seems kind of funny to say so but it has been. It has rained all day but it has been so nice. I've had the doors open all day letting the fresh air in and I just love the smell of rain.

The kids spent a huge portion of the day outside playing the puddles in their rain jackets with umbrellas.

We even cooked out on the grill on our covered porch! It's just been beautiful.

I spent a lot of the day reading about being "green". There is much to learn. I've always tried to be but it's not often easy and it can be rather expensive so... but I'm going to try to do better. If you have any suggestions please let me know them!!

When the kids came in after dinner they put up the card table in the living and played a board game. It seems like it was a perfect day! I didn't get much done (as usual) but it was still a wonderful day. I hope you all enjoyed yours.


  1. If you are looking for some great resources on the green life, as well as how to do it economically, let me know. I have a ton of information to share, and would more than happy to email/mail you some! Also, go check out Tash's site at as she has lots of info as well...

  2. like Leanne says - it doesn't have to be expensive. It is great to hear of children playing board games! instead of watching tv, I think that is wonderful - great bonding.

  3. Leanne, I'll check out her blog now. Thanks!

    miss*r, I try to get my kids to do other things than tv but it's not always easy! It was so nice last night though.

  4. Isn't it glorious to get rain! My son asked me this morning if I had heard the storm. I missed it as I was probably snoring away! Grrrr. I love rainy days.

  5. You know, Rosa, I guess I slept through rain last night too! I woke up and noticed the ground seemed wet. I thought maybe it was just a heavy dew but the preacher talked about the shower we had so...

    I do like the rain but I have a hard time when it's cloudy. I tend to get cranky and down. But the rain can usually help release that.

    Thank for stopping by my little space in the blogosphere and commenting.
