Rain, Rain go away!

It's raining, It's Pouring, the old man is snoring!
He bumped his head against the bed
And couldn't get up in the morn-ning!

If you sang that when you were a child, you are old --like me-ha!  It has been raining for three days now, gloomy, gloomy!  And after temps in the 70's and 80's last week, it is back to winter and 41 degrees again.  Come On SPRING!!!

Yesterday, the squirrels got caught in the rain and made a bee-line for the large bird house on our tree in back that they took over.  Too funny as they sat there watching the rain.
Here he (or she) is after scrambling through the rain and peeking back out of the hole they chewed to acommodate their size.  It is so funny to see them!
As the rain tapered off, he emerged to check out the situation and hung in the opening for a while.
Once the rain sufficiently let up, he got down and searched the whole yard for peanuts in the shell that he buries one day and digs up the next-ha!
We are so blessed with all of our critters in the back yard and they all seem to live harmoniously with others and with us.

At dusk, a large raccoon was on the opposite bank of the lake running along the water edge and then started to swim across towards the yard.  We all ran to the window and that must have spooked him so he turned around and went back disappearing into a duct pipe.  Last year we saw a family of them every night at dusk come down to the lake to fish and eat.  Hopefully, we well get some pictures as they seem to come the same time each eve.

But rainy days are good days for getting things done inside, reading, crafting (See my Egg Carton Tulips at Kerrie's Krafts 3) or you could wash and Iron:
Or sew something...

Or......You could just chill out which is what hubby is doing-LOL!  This is not my cat but our ragdoll also knows how to chill out....

Sweet Isabella napping on "HER" couch in the den with her toys.  Nervous, isn't she? LOL!!

come back soon and visit with us again. we love your company!  And if you have time, please visit our other blogsites that are linked in the sidebar-THANKS!

My heart to yours....

Yes, we need the rain, but I had to rescue my tender lettuce leaves into the house from being crushed ;-) Good time to stay inside and crochet!

I think I'll pass on the washing and ironing. Maybe I will just try and see how long I can sit without moving hardly a bone in my body, that sounds like fun!!! Practiced laziness! Kind of like your cat!! The squirrel is TOO funny!!!! Are you just going to let him have the house? I hope you get the racoon pictures, I have heard they are very bold when food is offered.
