Rain, rain go away

Little Emmie wants to play,
rain rain go away.

We broke the state record for rain in May and April, and are about to do the same for June. Flowers are bent over, grass is soggy, pools are empty. It feels like late October, and our daily highs are in the LOW 60s. In JUNE.

Climate change, evident every day here in Oregon. Readers, are your climates changing?

If not careful, this is what can happen when you live in a house with four sisters: you fall prey to Spa Day, complete with painted, glittery fingernails. (No female here has ever atually been to a spa, but we hear stories.)

He doesn't look too put out, does he?

I aint no Betty Crocker

Hubby came home from work, hungry, and glanced at the banana bread made earlier in the day: "All right! Meatloaf!"

Chit Chat

Emmeline is quite the talker now. A recent conversation:

me: "Emmeline!"

baby: "Mama"

me: "Love!"

baby: "Yes"

HOW CUTE IS THAT????? Brought tears to my eyes!

mea culpa

I shall post. Soon. And not because I have to, but because it is almost FATHERS DAY and I never got my mothers day post published. Seriously, I do not know how busy moms keep their blogs current. Just ... can't ... keeep ... up!
