We had a high temp of 53 degrees today (it's down to 49 now at 2:30) but the forecast is for rain this afternoon (well, they got that right as it is, indeed, raining), then high winds with rapidly falling temperatures and snow tonight continuing over into tomorrow morning. Will it be just a dusting of snow? If the weathermen can be believed, it will be 2-7" of wet, heavy stuff. Oh, darn.
So what do we do around here on a rainy Sunday besides filling the wood box and pulling the snow shovels back out of storage?
Why, Papa Pea goes out to wash vehicles, of course. I'm not sure I understand his reasoning or rationale, but they are filthy so I'm letting him have his fun.
I'm doing something that strikes me as much more enjoyable --- spending quality time with one of my new spring table runners using a thimble, needle, scissors and a big ol' spool of quilting thread. This is the second of the three runners that I'm doing the quilting on. Gosh, with luck (and more bad weather) I might stand a chance of having them done and usable yet this spring.
If you could see how much I've been yawning since sitting down here at the computer, you might suggest I take a nap this rainy afternoon. That might not be as much fun as quilting but . . . hmmmm.
I'll let you know tomorrow if we're snowed in. Admittedly I'm not as smart as the weather forecasters (ahem) but I have a feeling we're going to get all rain and nary a flakelette of snow. Will I have to eat (or shovel) these words? Time will tell.
Rain, rain and more Rain
