Rainy Day Fun

Ah, spring in Washington State. Majestic mountain views, blossoming trees, and heavily overcast skies putting forth a nearly nonstop drizzle. Oh, sure, sometimes the sun comes out. But by the time you can say, “It’s sunny! Let’s go for a walk,” find everyone’s shoes, and get jackets on, poof! the clouds are back.

I’ve been visiting my son and his family there. Aside from watching videos until their eyes glaze over, what are two active preschoolers to do on a rainy day?

I’m glad you asked.

Their mommy and I have a few tricks up our sleeves. Like hanging out at Barnes & Noble (I actually did buy a book!)

And making a batch of baking-soda dough, then fizzing it up with vinegar.

There’s the play area at the mall…

Writers gotta write!

Meanwhile, artists gotta, um, “art.”

Ah, a nice vacant sofa to sit on…

… or not!

I hope you’re having a sunny day, regardless of the weather.
Thanks for reading,
Jan

Besides blogging, I write humorous fiction, though real life tends to leave fictional humor in the shade. But I'm not a total goofball. No, really. I'm also working on a biography project. I live in North Texas with my husband, Brent. We enjoy bicycling, Mexican food, and traveling to visit our kids and grandkids.

    In Yakima, it was like that in the winter. Too much snow, cold and Ice. We played a lot of records, didn’t have videos. Paper, colors, water colors, home made play dough. And tea parties.
