It’s been a rainy spring break week around here. We’ve spent all of it so far at home. At the beginning of the week, I challenged myself to take at least one photo each day. I did manage to do that.
I decided to share the photos as glimpses of each day of our rainy spring break for my Five on Friday, hosted by the blog, F.A.S.T.
It was gray, gloomy morning with rain on the horizon. However, it was a great day to wake up to a purring cat as opposed to a blaring alarm. G had a friend stay over Sunday night and a gloomy Monday morning seemed a good time for doughnuts. Unfortunately, most local doughnut shops take Mondays off. The grocery store selections had to do. The apple fritter is always, always mine. Waiting until Tuesday will be our plan next time, however.
Another rainy morning but I was determined to get the family out of the house if only for a bit. Only for a bit to have lunch at a local restaurant was all we could manage. Even that proved to be a bit of a fight.
A local park’s waterfall (turned on for the spring and summer season at last!) made for a nice view during our lunch. I just had to annoy the family and take a few pictures from the parking lot.
Guess what kind of weather greeted us on Wednesday morning? More rain! Tuesday evening was J’s turn to have a friend over. The boys stayed up quite late and so Wednesday turned out to be a perfect lazy day for me.
I spent it with a cup of tea, my book, and a rather sub-par cupcake (boxed mix and frosting…)
I left the boys all to their own devices (J actually had plans to go to a local science museum with a friend) and went to get my hair done.
I was slightly nervous to be getting a perm again but I was ready for a change. I trust my hairdresser and she assured me I wouldn’t come out looking like my grandmother.
I was quite happy with the results. We’ll see how I do with styling it when I can actually wash it in a couple of days. Things haven’t changed that much and I still must wait to wash my hair for 2 days.
We also decided to take advantage of our damp, rainy weather and throw a bit of grass seed down in the now muddy patches of our yard.
Well, so far it has not rained. However, the skies still look like this: My mood is starting to match the weather (and yes, more rain is called for during our weekend!) and I’m feeling a bit gloomy.
This was not exactly the spring break I had in mind. How do you cope with gray, gloomy days?
