Easter Monday beat all records it rained and rained and rained.

That's what I saw from the inside looking into the rain, while cat Arthur sat on the window sill under the roof and admired the rain from outside.

Fortunately Nicole had some work for me to do on her computer, and to explain, so we spent the whole afternoon together. We didn't have our scrabble afternoon, because all the others were busy with their children and grandchildren. Mr. G. hid behind his computer and played Whist as usual.

The next days were not better, I just could do some shopping to feed my "What do we eat tonight" husband, this is usually the sentence I hear when I just wake up. Sometimes I can understand that people have killer instincts. I blogged a bit and looked on Facebook, at the group "Living in Waterloo" because I badly need somebody to help in our garden. Usually it always works people are very helpful. I put a little request and now I am waiting for an answer.

Another friend wanted to join Facebook but didn't know how to do so. I don't know very well either only that it is better to adapt

this policy, because some people can get so aggressive and have no humour at all. That's why I told her to only read and eventually comment in our group, although even there are some black sheep.

As we missed our scrabble game on Monday, we did it today

As usual the winner was always the same, our half blind friend (red pullover) !

What a boring week again, I feel like in prison who wants to go out in the cold, wind and rain if it is not absolutely necessary !

more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

Well the rain has to end sometime right??

I honestly dont know what. A boring week is...there is always something to do around this house!! Although this spring break week has been kinda "boring" in that it was way too cold for me to go up to the mountains and hike! They still have a foot of snow up there!!

Have a good weekend.

Spring remains in a holding pattern here too.

I've never played Scrabble. I remember my grandparents playing it, and they would either play in English or in Dutch.

I love the 1st photo with Arthur. Such a cute picture :-)

Glad you got your Scrabble game in, though later in the week. Hope the rain stops soon! We're supposed to get rain over the weekend and maybe even snow.

I am ever hopeful that some decent weather will start to emerge we are back to wind and rain.

Spring is bound to get there soon. You actually did quite a bit for a rainy week.... I remember how hard it is to get motivated when the weather is gray and depressing (from when we lived in Oregon all year long -- it rains there a lot in the winter and spring).

It does seem that Mother Nature is ranting and raving and needs to take some meds this year. We had yet another snowfall warning this weekend and are again blanketed in the white stuff. It does get difficult when the weather makes one housebound but it sounds like you were at least able to see some friends and enjoy that scrabble game at some point.

Hope the rain clears up soon. I am sure you will soon see signs of spring.

Wow, it sounds like you are getting a lot of rain there. Spring WILL arrive eventually.
Your Scrabble parties always amuse me. Obviously, you all have a great time.
