Rainy Days

If it weren't for rainy days we would not appreciate the sunny days, or at least that is what I am trying to tell myself given that it has rained for what seems like a week and upbeat weather man Sam Champion says we are in for more. One or two days isn't so bad but three or four and it tends to zap the energy. Although, it is making everything nice and green.

Originally planned to get outside and do some flower gardening but the rain put a damper on that idea. Although a brief dry spell allowed a trip to at least purchase flowers. And yes a mix of annuals and perennials are now ready to be planted. Home Depot and Lowe's are the best in that they allow dogs to accompy their best friends during shopping excursions in the outside garden department. If only more stores would allow our furry friends. Needless to say Angel had fun.

Sunday was a complete washout for outdoor activities like gardening or golf but a perfect excuse to nap on the couch with the dog and boyfriend. Quail Hollow turned out to be not as exciting as we originally anticipated but it was nice to see someone other than Tiger win. And Carolina did beat Boston in the NHL playoff. Oh how I would love to see Brindamour win another. If you don't have to go out rainy days can be nice.

Today is a different story though the weekday commute in rain is never fun. Why does such a thing as rain always create such traffic jams? At least being inside working on a rainy day is easier than knowing it's a sunny perfect summer day outside. Those make being stuck inside much harder. Yes rainy days might not be so bad after all, then again let's revisit that comment after the week of rain they are predicting here.
