"Rain, rain go away"

We are still getting lots of rain here, it seem to just keep on pouring.
Here a just a few pictures from yesterday, the happenings on the homestead.
( seems to go with all this rainy weather, and besides I love Shel Silverstein's poetry!)
I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

Aimaija and Celeisa, in their dresses, that Julia whipped up for them yesterday afternoon! Rainy days are good for sewing ;)

Julia, writing.

I also wanted to let you all know about a giveaway, our friends that West Ladies are having, over at their blog, Homestead Blessings.
Be sure to head over and enter for a chance to win a their great dvd, The Art Of Crafting!


  1. Rain is needed we all know this...but it is also a time to spend indoors enjoying the blessings there.

    The poetry is so lovely...


  2. I always love to come here every morning to see what goodies in the way of words and pics you have posted:). That is sooo funny about Julia "Whipping" up dresses in a morning. Gosh, she must be a great seamstress!One morning? I crochet blankets, but alas, cannot sew! Sew to me:) that is funny!
    Snow... oh yes, used to live in Minnesota as a girl of 7. Blizzards. Now Im almost 37, and live in Texas. It is October, and almost in the 80s! So much for snow!:) Blessings on your day

  3. rainy days, to me, are glorious!
    happy times and coziness abounds, especially if there's homemade soup and fresh bread at the ready.

    enjoy the rain. :o)

    love the poetry.


  4. Hi Rosie,
    Love the pictures....I always enjoy it very much when you post pictures from around your homestead. Those dresses for the little girls are adorable!!
    Do you all still use Mrs. Meyers products? I have used them before, but they can get to be a little pricey. But, oh my, they smell so good.
    Wishing you a blessed and happy day.

  5. We adore the West Ladies! We have all their dvd's!

    Julia is a very fast seamstress! They are adorable jumpers!

    I guess the rain took away your bit of snow....

  6. We are due for a major storm, in a matter of minutes, here. It's going to have a lot of rain, as well! I bet your household is just itching to get outside, huh? :)

    Love seeing your drawings! :)

    I have already entered the giveaway over at the West's blog! I have them on my blogroll and saw when they made the post! :) Thank you so much, for sharing it, though!

    I hope sunshine and happiness are yours in abundance, soon!

  7. Rain, rain, come and visit me - I like you a lot! Although I can't complain - it is a beautiful day here. Bright and sunny, with a nice cool autumn breeze. Love y'all! Raquel XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
