Rainy Days

We are having rainy days
we have been under a severe flood alert
for the last three days.

Alfie dog and I have been watching it rain, rain and rain even more!!!!

To pass the time I have been reading
simmering  a pot of pinto beans on the stove
baking corn bread
 taking photos
keeping a close watch on the weather.

Alfie does not know
what he wants to do
one minute
he wants outside to play in the cold rain
the next he wants to come inside to take a nap.

It has been raining a very long time
Alfie and I are warm, content and safe.

  1. We have had off and on rain here in Florida. Some of the downpours have been amazingly heavy - straight down - no wind or blowing. Usually at home it's just whipping around, so this is quite different. Stay safe!

  2. I'm hoping we get an hour or two of sunshine today! ;) It has been raining up here, too. I LOVE the last photo! LOL! I need reminders of staying calm. ;) Hope you and Alfie find a ray of sunshine today! blessings ~ tanna

  3. Alfie is adorable! Stay safe and dry, Jean

  4. What a little cutie Alfie is. Hope you two stay warm and cozy.

  5. Love the picture of Alfie and I have never seen an elf like that. He looks like chalkware. I hope your rain lets up soon-xo Diana

  6. Our rain let up today and it was springlike and sunny. It felt great to open the windows and let in some fresh air. That's all going to change in a couple of days, though and winter is going to blow back in. Love your little elf. :) Laura

  7. What a cute doggie...Have a cozy day...Balisha

  8. Pinto beans and cornbread sounds like a perfect rainy day meal to me. Yum! Hope the rain lets up soon! Hugs to you and Alfie and best wishes for a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  9. Sweet Alfie pic and such a cute elf....and oh you have me craving some cornbread now! Hope the rain lets up soon!

  10. I know how Alfie feels. It has been snowing here and now it is really cold. Bentley wants to go outside and play but the weather just is not cooperating for that. So inside he stays and plays with his toys. From time to time he looks longingly out the window. Poor Alfie and Bentley.

  11. I'm glad to know you are tucked into your cozy home, staying dry! We've had a lot of rain lately, too, though I don't think nearly as much as you're getting. It's sort of gray and misty now. There's still snow on the ground but less of it than there was.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  12. I hope your area does not get bad flooding. Staying inside with a pot of bean soup simmering on the stove sounds like the best thing to do for now.
