The rains so far have been a nice slow steady rain, with a few mild summer thunderstorms.
But you know, I love a rainy day. Well I love being home snug inside on a rainy day. Rainy days at home are cozy. I love to turn on the lamps, light my candles (or tart warmer) and just nest. I love hearing the raindrops on the window. On rainy days, I enjoy reading, watching movies with the kids, and it even inspires me to tweak and clean my house. They’re also good days for naps.
I remember playing outside in the water puddles after a rain as a kid. Yes, my mom would let us put on our swimsuits and play in the water puddles on our non-busy street. My mom associates rainy days with paper dolls. She must have played alot of paper dolls on those rainy days.

Rain gets a bad rap sometimes. There are so many poems and quotes with rain associated with sadness, hurt, or grief. But truly, the rain brings life. Everything is so green after a rain (which we certainly needed, especially our garden). And then there’s also those beautiful rainbows too.
Do you enjoy rainy days? If it’s not raining in your neck of the woods, you can close your eyes and imagine a summer rainstorm. This video is done entirely by people making the sounds of a rainstorm with their bodies and by jumping on the stage. So hit the play button; close your eyes; and enjoy.
"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
