Singing in the rain (inside)

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
--Gene Kelly

It is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere. Our October is your April (folks up there). And I am hoping the flowers are going to be pretty this year because it seems to be a consistent London drizzle or an Indian Monsoon. I have soggy shoes and rain on the brain.

Naturally when I saw the lovely raindrops on one of my favorite artist's Camilla Engman's studio wall, I had to paint my own watery plops and platters (blush for copying). But I couldn't stop at the wall--I had to do appease the appetite (after all that work on a ladder). And out of my oven burst raindrop cookies. Pleased, Georgia and I stared at the new wall (while eating the cookies) and suddenly the sun illuminated the room. I tried to explain to G that rain plus sun = rainbows. So we made rainbow cupcakes. And to complete the fairy tale, I ran to the candy store and bought her some golden coins.

I told my dear daughter, I found them at the end of the rainbow.

But we'll keep that part a secret (wink, wink).


  1. by the way, thanks to helo and vera for helping me with the paint job! beijos

  2. It just remembered me another beautifull song:

    "...The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people passing by
    I see friends shaking hands
    Saying, "How do you do?"
    They're really saying, I...I love you
    I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
    They'll learn much more
    Than we'll know
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld..."
