Rainy Days

Rainy Days...

So what do you do when a tropical storm creates havoc with what would normally be a perfectly lovely Florida fall weekend? Having been house bound for three days my husband and I have worked through our short list of bad-weather-in-door-activities. I suppose people up north have a huge arsenal of fun filled things to do to keep occupied when bad weather forces them into hermit crab mode. Floridians though – are bad at being weather challenged. We take our sunny skies so for granted that we don’t develop other options. Below is our short list – again – already finished – hoping others can share their ideas – otherwise I will be forced to live with the Carpenters singing in my head for at least another 24 hours…Rainy Days and Mondays… 

  1. The obvious – snuggle with your Bunny…
  2. Movie marathon – ours included The Dilemma, The Social Network and Paul – all not too bad – but nothing else at the Blockbuster Box was worthwhile after these 3 flicks – guess we’re not the only ones indulging in couch potato mode…
  3. FOOD – shopping for – cooking for – eating – and start all over again – not sure my waist line can stand this one…
  4. Napping – when life bores why not snore? – ‘cuz I’m not sleepy dammit…
  5. Reading– finished my book – need to go to the library – still raining…
  6. Cards – I hate games…
  7. Facebook – email – surfing the internet – funny – when I don’t have time for these I can’t wait to get on the computer – when I do have time – I’m not interested…
  8. Cleaning – ugh…
  9. TV – thank goodness it’s Sunday – football just might save my sanity…
  10. Staring out the window – waiting for the sun…

    Too much water for the river...

 

 

 

 

 

Too much water for the backyard…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hoping the cucumber will survive storm force winds…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Looking for dry land...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Empty seats at the Tiki Bar…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Waiting for brighter days...

    Great Photos but everything looks so lonely. Not much happening there.
    These pictures make me wonder about the pool. The pool cleaning person is probably going to have to be called in. I can’t believe all the water. You definitely came up with more things to do do this rainy weekend than I would have. I don’t like rainy days!

    Wow I can’t believe all the water! Guess you guys will be pretty busy cleaning up once all this rain stops. Anyway, it sounds like we did a lot of the same things on this rainy weekend. I do have one movie to recommend and that is Brides Maids. Tell Jeff that Dave laughed more than I did, so don’t worry about it being a “chick flick.” See you guys soon.
