Rain, Rain go away … Come Again Another Day


Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

I’m guessing you might remember standing at a window when you were young and wanting to go out and play! Well, I’ve stood at the window a lot lately wishing the same thing!

It looks like we are not doing Fall this year in the Dallas area of Texas! We have had more rain the last month and a half than the entire rest of the year, and there are many flooded areas around the city. Normally, October is a lovely month in Texas with moderate temperatures and very little rain.

So what did my family do? Way back in the summer, we planned a picnic in the park for our families to have a get-together for the first time in many years. Of course it is next Sunday October 21. Little did we know we would have a monsoon! Hmmm … we are still planning and, if the weatherman is right, we just might get to have it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love rain and it is a cozy time to read a book or to write my stories. I’ve always considered rain or snow days as adult time-out, but I guess at this point I’ve had more than enough time-outs, and I am ready to get out of the house. Sometimes I think the rain is God’s tears for the mess His world is in.

I promise you a better story next week about a 1923 Children’s Party Book that I found among my mother’s keepsakes. I’ve had children’s nursery rhymes on my mind ever since I found the little book!

So I’ll just end with another poem.

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

And I bet you know what my wish is!

    It is so good to hear from you. We have thought about you and missed your company. Feel free to call us anytime before 10:00 and share our main meal at 12:00. We have meals made ahead ready to pop in the oven. We’d be delighted to share. Bring your own hot sauce cause we don’t do spicy. I would love to see that party book as I often have nursery rhymes coming out of me head. K & J
