A rainy day is a day to look forward to.
It is an excuse to snuggle down with rusty pups at my feet,
a good book in my hands or perhaps some stitching.
But that rainy day should be sandwiched between two sunshiny days.
Not day after day, after day, like this month has been.
Can't get near the vegetable patch....it's flooded.
I hate to whine especially when our thoughts are
with those who live in the flood plains of the
Assiniboine and Mississippi rivers.
All this water dampens my desire to stitch.
But thank goodness for all the collections
of precious things
dotted about the house.
Perhaps just looking at them on a dreary day
helps keep the flame of creativity alive.
Perhaps tomorrow the sun will shine.
