Happy Rainy Day

A rainy day at Clonmacnoise; no crowds, just stillness.

“Some people feel the rain; others just get wet.” ~Bob Marley

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

May the blessing of God’s soft rain be on you,
Falling gently on your head, refreshing your soul
With the sweetness of little flowers newly blooming.
May the strength of the winds of Heaven bless you,
Carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean
Sparkling after in the sunlight.
May the blessing of God’s earth be on you,
And as you walk the roads,
May you always have a kind word
for those you meet.    ~Irish Blessing

Pull Up the Drawbridge….More Rain Coming

A throw-back photo from Cahir Castle, when my son was a little man of seven, circa 2001.  995

Sure wish we had a strong drawbridge about now, or an ark would do fine also.  Multitudinous amounts of rain forecast here over the next few days.

Stay safe and dry in your castle.  Slainte, Lisa

Tricking Myself


It’s raining.  It’s Monday.  Hmmm….I could post “Rainy Days & Mondays” by the Carpenters, but that wouldn’t help a bit.  🙂  So I think a little tricking of myself is in order to flip this mood around.  I hereby publish:

The Five Official Reasons to Love a Rainy Day:

1.  The rain makes everything greener, and I love green for sure.

2.  The rain makes me very tired chilled out, which makes for a relaxing day.  And I like relaxing for sure.

3.  The rain sounds cool on my tin roof, and I like cool sounds for sure.

4.  Gene Kelly looks super happy “Singing in the Rain”, and I like watching that for sure.  genekelly

5. ?

Oh, well, I guess it’s now The Four Official Reasons to Love a Rainy Day.   And four out of five ain’t bad.  Slainte, Lisa
