Tuesday Talking...

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. ~Langston Hughes

It rained yesterday. A LOT. Buckets and buckets. I was so grateful it wasn't ice, DH was angry it wasn't snow. Had it been snow, we would have been buried! As it was, DD and Dakota were still able to go out in it -- at least in the late morning (by lunchtime it was raining FAR too heavily to go out walking).

I thought they looked adorable -- a matched set:

What's most amazing about the rain we had is that the snow is all but gone! Look behind DD and Dd ... see all that snow? The edges are still there, but the part that is lawn is now down to the grass. It's driving Dakota nuts -- she prefers to go potty on snow, and she's really having to search for spots to go! I only wish this was the end of winter, but it will undoubtedly snow again, and probably quite soon. This rain was an anomaly.

DD is feeling much, much improved. It's amazing how quickly she's bouncing back to normal! I want to be a kid again...

She made two of her custom pairs of earrings over the weekend, but still needs to make both bracelets, which are far more time consuming. Hopefully she'll have time to do that this weekend. It's amazing how much more time school takes this year than it did in years past, and I don't imagine that's going to change as time goes on.

I posted on Healthful & Homemade on how to tell if something is actually food. I'd love it if you gave it a quick read!

Now, I got up early to write, so I'm off to do just that. Have a great day!

You Love to Talk About Current Events

You are an admitted news and political junkie. You pride yourself on knowing what's going on in the world.

You prefer to talk with people who are equally up on current events. You think there are a lot of important things to discuss.

You get bored easily, and you prefer to always be discussing new things with your friends. You feel like it's easy to get in a conversation rut.

You are the type most likely to bring up new and interesting topics of conversation. You always have something fascinating to talk about.

Yep.. that's about right -- though I don't really discuss politics and news here, it's a BIG part of me IRL.

I love the picture of DD and Dd with their matching rain gear.

You Love to Talk About Relationships

You love to talk about people you know. You're not exactly a gossip - you just think a lot about your friends and family.

You're likely to be completely up to date on what's going on in everyone's life. And when someone has good news, you make sure and share it.

You also spend a fair amount of time dissecting relationships and analyzing people. You are always trying to better understand the people you're closest to.

Of all the types, you are the most social. You have a lot of people to talk to and to talk about!

What an adorable photo! We got an incredible amount of rain here, too. Thank goodness it wasn't snow.

Am so glad your kitty is okay. Whew! I know that must have been frightening. They really are part of the family, aren't they? We do miss our Piglet here.

Hope the writing is going well. I'm looking forward to getting back to my wip--hopefully today. I hope I remember where I left off! :)

They are so cute in their matching slickers!

Brandy said...

Aww, matching rain gear! Too cute! Glad to hear your Daughter is feeling better. It's amazing how kids bounce back.
My quiz results were the same as yours. And no, I don't talk about religion or politics (especially politics) on my blog. It's hard not to say something about either one, but I keep my "mouth shut". *G* But, at home? Yeah, Chris and I talk all the time.

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Very cute pic of your girls in their raingear!

So cute! :)

I'd worry about all that rain-covered pavement freezing when the temps go down, but that's just me. *g*
