When the sun shines

The sun is shining people! Shining! And living where we only see sun 2 out of every 7 days, it makes the sunshine a miracle! (I made up that statistic, but I'm pretty sure I'm not far off)

I always say that you will never find ANYONE who appreciates the sun as much as those of us who live in the Pacific Northwest. Can I get an amen from all my Washington brothers and sisters?

So now the question, what do I do on a day like this? Where the sun is out, the skies are blue. My first thought is always to clean. Why is that? On rainy days I just want to sit on the couch and mope. But when it's nice and we can go outside, I want to clean. I'm weird, I know.

So do I maybe clean up our back yard?

hmmm, sounds boring. Even though it's obviously necessary. And the grass could use a good mowing.

Or do I take these guys to a park? Which might be problematic since it rained yesterday and so everything at the playground is soppy.

hmmmm, what to do. Or do we go and get gluten free treats from Hayley's Bakery and hope by then the sun has dried up the rain on the slides and the swings?

That sounds like a plan. But there will be a little cleaning just to keep up with my 30 day challenge. Which by the way is going AWESOME! It's so nice to know that I can open the door to anyone and everything is already clean!

It really was just a matter of deciding to not let the grayness that is Seattle overcome my normally "likes to clean" persona. That part of me disappeared for a while. I'm not from here, ok? It has taken me 5 years of living here to realize, it doesn't get any sunnier just because I'm grumpy:)

Anyhoo, I also feel like shopping on days like this. Now if I could just find a big pot of money at the end of the rainbows I'm sure I will see today.

I hope it's sunny where you are. Chances are that if you live outside of the Pacific Northwest, that will be true for you.

Jerk. I mean, yay for you!

Have a glorious day!


  1. oh, i've never been to hayley's bakery, but my daughter is friends with "the" hayley it's named after. she's just the nicest most sweet girl. i love that my daughter has a friend like her. the whole family is super super amazing. i love them!!

    and, i'm with you about cleaning when it's sunny. i just feel happier and it just makes me want to get off my duff and be productive!

  2. We had sun for the first part of the day here on the eastern side of the state. Than it became really windy and cloudy. I thought it was going to pour, but so far no rain has fallen. Whew!

  3. uh. no comment...

    Just kidding. Sorry about all the rain. It does make that crazy jungle a beautiful place to live. Gotta pay the price somewhere. Love and miss you! We'll be in Seattle Aug 14-21, let's get together. I'll be in the states starting June 7, if you are by chance needing a get away to the 2nd driest state, come and see me!
