Washington and rain -- synonymous, I know. But, come on.... torrential downpours in late June? So not cool.
I have been keeping busy to keep my focus on family, not the weather! Here are the ways I am keeping my focus inside instead of outside:
Keep a candle lit! I know, the smell is so relaxing!
Trying new recipes: The Pioneer Woman's Whiskey Peach Chicken was a hit. I am hearing Chocolate Cheesecake calling -- any advice or good recipes?
Sewing Baby Shower gifts! Quilts, burp rags, sleep sacks and some hooded towels. I will post my progress soon!
Researching Home school Curriculum -- a new adventure waiting for us this fall!
A trip to a LEGO Store opening in Lynnwood. We even helped a Master LEGO builder build an 8-foot tall Yoda out of LEGO bricks.
Purchasing a Seattle Pacific Science Center year pass! King Tut, here we come!
Trying to create a plan to update my living room -- frequent searches on craigslist, etc.
Purchasing some new summer reading for the kids!
Playing Settlers of Catan with the family ... don't forget to add on the expansions like this!
I am teaching myself to knit! Woohoo!
And, of course, the general business that comes with a household of three young kids, a dog, and a husband! :)
"Today is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!" Psalms 118:24
Sometimes when it is raining or I am feeling blue, this Bible verse is a conscious choice I have to make -- it makes all the difference in the world. Don't waste a day based on bad weather, make the most of it -- there will only be one "today." I would love to know what you are doing on rainy, summer days!
