The Rain In Maine Is Becoming A Pain

Can you believe it?  The weather dudes are forecasting rain for everyday over the next week.  We won’t get to see the sun again until Friday at the earliest.  Not only that, but the temperatures won’t find their way out of the fifties – yuck!!!  I asked when summah would arrive and was told, “Don’t be out of Maine during the third week of July!”  I believe it!!!

Yesterday was one of those forecasted overcast, rainy days.  So, I didn’t even get out of my PJ’s.  I was going to do some painting, but it was just too cold to stand outside painting.  Plus I have a hard enough time painting without attempting to do it with gloves on.  Judy did work on her quilting while I kept my nose stuck in a book.

I’m reading “Promised Land” by Derek Prince; it’s a history of Israel.  Derek Prince is our first pastor’s grandfather who studied philosophy at Cambridge University in England.  He and his family lived in Israel during the forties and in Jerusalem in 1947 through 1948 when Israel became a nation once again. 

This is an interesting history in that Derek Prince has incorporated Biblical prophecies into the timeline.  If anyone doubts the existence of God, then all they have to do is look objectively at the history of the Jewish people.  There is no doubt that the hand of God is on His people.

Anyhow, we played inside yesterday and may just do so again today after church.  If it weren’t for w*rk, we might just eat up a bunch of nuts and berries and go into hibernation for the rest of the week – we want sun and we want it now!!!  Oh well, it is what it is and we’ll just have to make the best of it.

Take Care Until Next Time - - - - - -    


  1. Oh - quit your whining! Think of all the folks who would pay big bucks to be able to spend a spring weekend in Maine - eating fresh scallops, enjoying the beautiful rocky coast, and kicking back with a good book! But on the other hand - you don't want to be gone for summah weekend!!!

    Just as wet here in NJ.

  2. Wet down here in PA, too!! And our forecast is much the same as yours. I figure it's just getting out of the way so that the week of June 13 is bee-yoo-tee-full!!!
