Rainy Day Random Pics

Yesterday was a cool and rainy day.  I'm not complaining 'cause Lord knows we need the rain.  It was a good day for cooking comfort food and getting some laundry done.  I made vegetable beef barley soup, gruyere and bacon scones and banana muffins with streusel topping. Yummy!


When Fred and Gloria weren't waiting by my feet for a taste of things to come out of the oven....


......they were sleeping.  We did however, get a chance for a short romp outside when the rain stopped for a bit.

I love the way this shot came out because it looks like Gloria is trying to touch Fred's tail.

Gloria looks like she has a saggy butt under her chin in this one!

"Whew! Gloria! Did you have to let one rip when I'm right behind you?"

And finally, go attack the camera lady!

Sometimes rainy days can be the best.  The only downfall to yesterday, I think I put on ten pounds because all I did was eat! It's supposed to rain all week so I'd better curb my appetite now!

  4. I love all the pictures, buy my favorite is the 4th one. It looks like you're doing a synchronized swimming routine (only without the water).

    Have a great day.

  15. Yes, that rain yesterday did not make for fun outdoor play here! And like your area, it's going to rain all week here too :( We all feel so lazy on weeks like this.

    Great pictures! Gloria looks so funny with her saggy butt chin!

  16. I have to agree with Mayor Frankie, these are some of the best pics. Rainy days can be good. I don't like to go out in the rain. If I have to go out but won't MOM holds an umbrella over me so I can pee. hehhehhe
    For some reason MOM wants to make soup now, maybe because it is suppose to rain today.
    Blessings,

  17. What a great series of photos!! I love the one of Gloria standing in the kitchen looking up at you. :) Today we're getting the rain, so that means Daisy will be napping most of the time. It's funny how weather can affect pups so strongly!

    That soup and those scones sound so good - my breakfast bowl of oat rings isn't looking too good anymore.... ;)

  18. We had a rainy day here too - fairly rare event. I baked Rubies Birthday Cake and did some prep for the peeps dinner at Grandpaws tomorrow! We will also celebrate someone's Birthday while we are there. Rubie tells me she has nominated her Grandpaw to be in charge of the "present draws " so that will be fun too!

    I'm sure it wasn't 10 pounds!?!

  27. Aww, Fred and Gloria are just so cute! We get a lot of rain here, especially this time of year, and I try not to let it stop us from getting outside and having fun. Although, I'd give up anything for a gruyere and bacon scone right now. That would be worth any weight gain!

  32. Sounds like a good rainy day to me, even if the dogs only got a short romp. Rainy days are great when you need to get stuff done around the house, sounds like you did!

  33. I love that last picture of Fred. We had a rainy day yesterday too. But we needed some rain. Rainy days make me want to nap like Fred and Gloria...and I like to watch bad movies. Not sure I have your ambition to cook and bake. :)

  34. Rainy days are good for getting things done. Looks like you got to have a little bit of fun!
