Morning Meanderings… Rainy Day and Books


Good morning.  Mmmmmm….. coffee is good here.  I am sitting at my kitchen table writing this post and watching it gently rain outside.  It is a hazy kind of day – the kind that makes for good reading or keeps you inside to do house cleaning.  I need to do a little of both today as I get ready for the basket assembly that will be happening here tomorrow morning with my friend Gail in preparation for the Wine and Words auction.

The bummer side of the rain is that today is the annual Church Picnic and baptism around 12:15 today.  It still has time to stop raining, so perhaps things will just be nice and clean.  We do need the rain it has been pretty dry here these last few weeks.

A few treasures came in this week:



Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evanovich  (audio)


Thrones and Bones by Lou Anders (audio)


The Young World by Chris Weitz (audio)


The Girls Of August by Anne Rover Siddons (audio)


Enchantress by Maggie Anton


The Secret Sky by Atia Abawi


The Last Breath by Kimberly Belle


Always A Catch by Peter Richmond


Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand


So We Read On by Maureen Corrigan


The Barter by Siobhan Adcock


Lots of good listening and reading!  I have to go and get ready, but curious….

what do you like to do on rainy days?

  1. i love rainy days!!! it’s nice not feeling like you HAVE to be productive and happy outside because the sun is out! that being said….rain makes me sleepy so I usually nap, read and flick thru the tv. hope the weather clears for your picnic..but churches have a marvelous way of turning lemons into lemonaide so I am sure it will be wonderful, enjoy!

    1. I cant wait to have one of those rain days where I can watch favorite movies with a big bowl of popcorn or a great book! Today was FULL. Then I came home and cleaned as I have people over in the morning to start work on the wine and words baskets. Just set down now and am eating supper while I type…. it is 7:33 pm here. 😀

  2. Hope the rain stops in time for the church picnic. You received some good books! The Girls of August and Winter Street are both on my wish list. Enjoy!

  3. On rainy days I like to play games with the family (we’re going to our daughter’s house in a few hours for games and pizza), watch movies or read.

    I hope it clears up and the Church Picnic/Baptism is a go!!

  4. Hmmm…since I spend so little time outside (can’t due to health issues), the weather doesn’t dictate much for me, BUT there IS one thing that comes to mind (other than reading) that rainy days lend itself to 😉

Hmmmm... what do you think?
