Rainy, Rainy Day

Song I’m listening to today? Out in the Park by Sarah Slean. Awesome song!!
It’s raining. Again. And while I love the rain, sometimes it really stinks. But, and this is why God is so good, just when I think I can’t handle it anymore it stops. My husband gets home and I suddenly have an opportunity to get out of the house!
I thought, “Hey! I can go shop for more fabric!” I really thought about it. Then I decided that I have already bought enough fabric this month and decided I should go for a run instead. Sitting in the house all day with kids makes Mommy a crazy bear. So, I went for a run.
And I was so happy I did! Not only did I get some energy burned off, but it was the most beautiful run ever! There is a bike path that borders a wetland preserve right near our house. It is literally a two minute walk away. It was so beautiful and green - just like what I would picture Ireland or someplace like it looking like. Ironic, what with St. Patty’s Day being a few days ago. Anyway, it was gorgeous and I was gone for an hour.
After getting back home, I decided to go back again a day or so later (it was still rainy) and take a few photos. Here they are!

Note! I am totally going to visit Ireland one day. ;)

To tell the truth, I actually do love it when it is raining. Yes, it’s hard to get out and do stuff with the kids, but it makes for great crafting time! I was able to create my own pattern for a crocheted lion beanie! This size is for a 12 month old, but my 4 year old was still able to fit in it pretty easily. One of my closest friends is having a baby boy in May and the theme for his room is the jungle/Savanna. Her brother painted this beautiful picture from the Lion King that I just had to make something for! So cute!

Anyway, I will post the pattern in a few days, once I finish correcting a thing or two. J
