Where do you go when you can’t get UNDER the weather?


ACEO...bet they are happy!



Ok, this post is not about being sick, unless of course I am referring to the constant rain we have had for the past week.  Yeah, I am sick of that.  The rain we have been receiving without end has stranded motorists, flooded roads and sent the nearby Rappahannock River over its banks.

The term under the weather actually refers to seasickness (when ancient sailors would go below deck to get out of the weather when not feeling well) and if it doesn’t stop raining soon being at sea might not be too far a stretch.

I know all the cute little phrases about may flowers and liquid sunshine since my husband, the perennial optimist, keeps coming up with new ones.

As for me I will be content to just get “under the weather,” meaning my basement studio and paint, flowers and trees and sunshiny days.  For now, that may be the only place where the sun will shine.

If it doesn’t stop soon, well, I’m almost ready to lead a mutiny and maybe…c’mon you knew it was coming… walk the plank.

I gave you an award. I didn't know if you did that or not. If you don't, no big deal, ignore it, I won't be offended.

I wrote on my blog that I HATE giving these out, because I see a lot of blogs with 'award free'.

Either enjoy! or ignore!

See? I am writing a huge comment about ths award!! ack. ugh.

We have a drake and hen nesting by the large fountain outside my office window. Today they regaled in the sunshine and on the warmth of the concrete - something they haven't been able to do for some time. I thought, what a great day to be a duck and for the first time in weeks felt like painting.

Thanks for the comments about my bunny post. I hope I did all I could for the little guy.

This weather is surely depressing for me, too. Even my daylight lamp isn't cutting it. Looking for my rainbow, Crystal....have you seen it.

Sick of the rain here too, although the sun did come out very briefly this afternoon. I love the pastel of the river!

Precious those ducks with beautiful colors and beautiful reflections in the water. The bridge is also delicious cake. Good luck to have a husband optimistic.

Love this painting. We're on the second day in a row of sunshine here in Estacada, Oregon. (first time this has happened this year)

All these years I have never known where "under the weather" comes from :-) That's too bad about all the rain - our summer last year was like that :S Hopefully the sun comes soon and dries everything out!
