Bring on the rain

It rained today. And I mean it freakin' rained. The worst of it only lasted, oh, half an hour or so, but man did it come down. And was accompanied by hail and gusts of wind up to 60 mph. By the time it stopped, the streets were flooded...

Luckily, within 20 minutes the water was down to almost nothing and the skies were blue once more, if only for an hour or two.

It continued to cloud over and sprinkle a bit throughout the day, though, so lil' J and I thought it best to stay inside. (I'll admit that I did try to talk her into putting on her rain boots and standing in the middle of the puddle at the end of the driveway but she was being difficult...) We amused ourselves by watching Kung Fu Panda (never saw it before...not bad!), playing games (she kicked my ass at Memory, but I beat her at Candyland and Chutes and Ladders) and putting her new charm thingers (whatever you call them) on her Crocs.

Personally, I was cool with having a lazy day to sit around and do a whole lot of nothing. Now it's your turn...what's your favorite way to spend a rainy day?
