    It is POURING rain like crazy here in the SF Bay Area! We need the rain, but what a downer for a Saturday. DH is gone all day, so the 3 kids and I are stuck at home! What do BYCers do to combat cabin fever? [​IMG]

    Thank your lucky stars it's not 90 (like is has been for the past 6 months) like it is down here! Bring the rain... we need it.
    I always like to go to the bookstore or coffee shop, maybe the mall.

    Bored? If you're bored I've got some chores you can help with...

    Rainy day list (soon to be, oh no, snowy day list):

    Knit one of the projects in my "50 weekend knitting projects" book
    Sew a quilt, or sew a piece of a quilt anyway
    Sew a dress
    Cook up some homemade chicken food and give the chooks a taste test (today's verdict: cranberries are inferior to blueberries, quinoa is an acceptable substitute for brown rice)
    Bake some dog biscuits
    Make candles, soap, laundry soap, shampoo, hand lotion, bath stuff, etc. If you actually add up all this type of thing you use all year + gift baskets for those random gift swap things that pop up annually, you can make quite a lot before you'll truly run out of storage space for it.
    Brew some beer, bake some bread, make some cheese
    Take a nap! I never get enough sleep

    Hi Neighbor!!!
    It really came down yesterday so we went to the movies. (HSM3 actually). I hope it clears up today though.
