And it rained, and rained, and rained


For the past couple of days, it has been cold, dreary, windy and rainy, and we’ve been shut inside, doing our best to spend our time productively and pleasantly indoors. I started some seeds, did some baking, and went on with my crocheting projects. The little poncho/capelet is coming along nicely.


I’ve also ordered some yak wool blend, and I’m excited to try it – I’ve never worked with yak wool before, but it sure feels very pleasant to the touch.


A batch of super simple granola bars, thrown together in 5 minutes, out of the oven in 15 – a healthy snack to keep up our energy in the afternoon.

I look forward to sunny days and puttering around the garden, but in the meantime, there’s so much to be grateful for – for instance, the fact that we repaired the roof and the air conditioning before this last cold and rainy spell.

  1. We in Israel (and the Middle East in general) have to be thankful for the rain because we don’t get it all year round. So far this morning, we’ve received only 48% of our normal annual rainfall.

    On the other hand, I understand that the rest of the week will be warmer and sunnier. Today is the worst of it. Or the best, depending on how you think of it. I am always thankful for breaks like this if we’ve had a decent amount of rain beforehand.

    By the way, have you noticed that I’ve put this blog on my blogroll? 😉

    1. I am grateful for the rain… But ideally, it would just fall during the night and leave the days clear and sunny 😁
      Thank you for adding me to your blogroll! I’ll add you as well in a bit.


  2. It has rained and rained and rained some more here, too. I don’t understand it, but we’ve have the rainiest November and December in decades this winter. If we could claim it could be good for the wells in the summer, that would be nice, but this past summer was rainy, too. Oh, complain, complain! At least it hasn’t been snow. Every inch of rain is equal to 10 inches of the white stuff. (about 15 cm, I think.) It would be up to the eaves by now!
