It has been brought to my attention by the Hubs that New England has a different kind of rain than Florida. A rain that is mostly soft, often lasts all day and can last dayssssssssssss.—PLURAL I did not understand this, but he’s pretty smart and went along with his plan to purchase rain gear for hiking, with the idea that the rain jacket would be used during the above-mentioned rainy days when not hiking. My rain gear arrived yesterday and today it rained. All. Day. Long.
Another hike scratched.
I did have a few windows to walk the dog for necessity’s sake and was able to grab a 40 minute exercise walk. But it rained. And rained. And is still raining.
I wore that rain jacket though. I wore it to the grocery story. I wore it on the dog walks. I took it to Mass tonight. That thing is handy. Hubby is spot on—again! It now lives at the front door, ready for action.
Since it was such a wet day, I cooked a few things for the week: Hard boiled eggs, sweet potatoes and pepper mixture for lunches and a White chicken chili for dinner tonight. Y’all. I don’t know if it was the weather or what but that soup…………..a gift. So good. So, SO good. I’m going to share a link HERE and a pic below (for inspiration), but you should absolutely make this once the weather reaches soup-appropriate wherever you live. You’ll thank me! I’m thanking myself and froze half for another night—yum!
