Rain, Rain, Go Away...

The ESN scavenger hunt this week is about water.  How appropriate??

We've had a couple of really rainy days here in SE Texas. And a really long stretch of cloudy dreary days.
We needed the actual rain, but truly, it is time to see the sun. It rained hard Monday, but we've had a lot of misty, drizzly, cloudy days.
It makes me think of the rhymes we used to say on rainy days.
Rain, rain Go away
come again another day
Rain rain Go Away
Little Johnny wants to Play.
It's raining, it's pouring.
The old man is snoring.
He jumped in bed and bumped his head,
and couldn't get up it the morning.

Of course, a rainy night makes for good sleeping and it's no wonder the old man couldn't get up in the morning, even without bumping his head.

And, there's
The Rain in Spain falls mainly on the Plain.

Here it seems to be falling everywhere.
So I am off to search ESN for rain gear. Anyone have a good umbrella or raincoat?  How about Galoshes? Or how about a doormat to keep from tracking with wet or muddy feet?
I found this nice coat for wind and rain at La Petit March

A handsome green pull over with 100% nylon shell
For the ladies, I found this vintage black and white parka/coat at Griffin Garb

1960's Parka/coat

And look at these cute "weather" labels from Made 4UbyFaith.

Here's a nice doormat from Cleo's Collectibles to catch the drips at your back door.

This doormat features vintage wine labels, grapes and vineyards.

Since I started this the rain has gone away and we are enjoying some beautiful sunny days and a light south breeze. Just a bit cool. Like most places, the saying here is "If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute." How true that is here, especially in the winter.
Whatever the weather where you are, you can find a lot of nice items on ESN.
Just think, spring will soon be here. We are already putting seeds in peat pots to sprout for our "front porch" container garden. And the rain IS good for the gardens.

  1. Hazel, you left out "row, row, row your boat" which is what we're gonna need if it keeps up LOL! Another couple of months and we'll be hollering we need rain, though, so I guess we better soak it up while we can :D
