It’s been POURING rain here for at least 2 weeks. The weather this week has been crazy. Within 6 hours on Tuesday it had rained x 4, sprinkled, snowed x2, hailed and was ridiculously sunny x2. Yesterday Micah and I walked home from the lightrail station and we’re attacked by sideways rain. Everyone at work has been depressed and complaining about the rain. Micah’s tired of the rain and even Izzy is a little depressed. She’s been tired and isn’t really that excited for her walks – particularly if her raincoat is involved. As a true Seattle native, this is a bit much and it’s making me crazy too.
I decided that this weekend, instead of complaining about the rain, I’m going to do all my favorite rainy day activities. We’re all going to sleep in, wake up and have a big breakfast that lingers on with copious amounts of tea and coffee. Then we’ll probably head down to the TV room to watch the NCAA tournament. I’m sure there will be a rainy day walk with Izzy and her cousin. We’ll end the night with a corned beef dinner and a DVD.
Sunday will be more of the same except maybe we’ll hit up a coffee shop so Micah can prep for classes. We also might head to a movie. Intermixed in all that will be lots of time in front of the fire, snuggling on the couch, planning our quick trip to Vancouver in a couple weeks and a little bit of tidying. Perhaps this warm and creamy dish for dinner?

We’re not going to let the rain get us down this weekend. What do you have planned for this weekend?
