Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks

I pretty much have to. I’m from Seattle where rain – or the threat of rain – happens often, especially November through March. And while we only get an average of 38 inches a year – far less than many other U.S. cities –… Continue Reading “Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks”

Rainy Day Workout with Benji

We are having another record breaking rainy start to the year in the Pacific Northwest. I don’t mean to complain as the rest of the country has been hammered with snow. Still, the rain is dreary and keeps us all pent up in the… Continue Reading “Rainy Day Workout with Benji”

Rain, Clouds, and Eagles

Saturday evening we took a walk at Coulon despite the threat of rain. I didn’t carry my camera – I’m always slowing my poor husband down on our walks – but I did have my phone. The clouds were spectacular and of course I… Continue Reading “Rain, Clouds, and Eagles”

Rainbow Cheer

Rain, rain, rain all week long but today I caught a little sunbreak and saw the hint of a rainbow over Lake Washington. I managed a short walk at Coulon Park while the rainbow played hide and seek with the clouds and sunshine until… Continue Reading “Rainbow Cheer”

A Rainy Last Day of Fall, Two Cats and Clam Lights!

After a mostly dry fall in the Pacific NW it seems that all the pent up rain has finally been loosed in a fury making today the rainiest Dec 20th on record, with many more like it to come.  How quickly we forget! Benji… Continue Reading “A Rainy Last Day of Fall, Two Cats and Clam Lights!”

Cats Seeking Shelter in the Rainy Northwest and Baseball

After a bizarre winter in the Great Northwest – featuring summer temperatures and record-breaking snowfall – we have now settled into a typical rainy spring. The garden is loving it and new plants are being thoroughly watered in. Cats seek shelter wherever they can… Continue Reading “Cats Seeking Shelter in the Rainy Northwest and Baseball”
