While the rain intermittently poured down outside, and drizzled in between those downpours, we remained (mostly) inside, all dry and cosy. I think there's something quite indulgent about wet weekends like this. They are the perfect "excuse" to eat comfort foods and sip warm drinks, snuggle under covers with good books, watch your favourite shows (having dragged those same covers to the lounge) and finish off a project or two. Here's a snapshot of the our rainy weekend:
Our rain soaked front verandah.
Raindrops on the olive trees.
Freshly baked Zucchini Slice Muffins.
Blanket stitching around a little felt brooch.
Cooking homemade minestrone soup.
A bunch of flat leaf parsley for the soup.
Pots of zucchini in the garden.
Little chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven.
(The delicious smell of them wafted through the house.)
A cucumber plant soaks up the rain.
Washing drying inside.
A warm drink & a library book.
Hmm... quite a bit of comfort food there. 😊 I'm sure the homemade lasagna and sticky toffee pudding we shared with friends who came for dinner on Saturday night would also be classed as comforting too. It seems I cook and bake (and eat?) a lot when it rains!
What's your favourite way to spend a rainy day?
