Play in the puddles…

When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles

Pooh Bear

Tap, Tap, Tap

Goes the child against the door

Drip, Drip, Drip

Raindrops roll from coat to floor

Wag, Wag, Wag

Tail of the eager dog

Great, big, sigh

This is going to be a slog

Please, please, please 

Says the one who can barely talk,

Even in this weather?

Looks like we’re going for a walk

Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh

Goes the Invasive wind

Splash, splash, splash 

The child and dog grin

Thud, thud, thud

Throbs my beating heart

Smile, smile, smile

Happiness is an art. 

When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles.

Regardless of the weather and whether you’ve been home all day or just walked in, a walk is always welcome in our house, especially a walk with puddles. My little guy and the four-legged old lady both conquered the puppy dog eyes long ago. They have no regard for an imposition the wet walk may cause. However, often those two know better and after we’re home dried and snuggled back under a blanket, I too must succumb to the notion that the walk was a good idea.

    1. Thank you, Marsha. That’s a really kind compliment. I was struggling with this one a little this week but my tiny boss and his four-legged companion inspired me. 🙂 KL ❤

  1. Love it, you’ve really captured the moment. I recall many long wet walks with my departed Pippa. She hated the rain, but nothing stopped her walk 😊

    1. Aww that’s lovely, what kind of dog was Pippa? My old boy that passed away a few years ago was a rough collie (Lassie style dog) and he needed a lot of long walks regardless of the weather. Millie, our little dog now is 17 so happy with a shorter/slower walk which suits the toddler too. 🙂 KL ❤

      1. Pippa was a rescue dog, so a bit of everything, but she was simply adorable. It was really hard as we lost both of our dogs within 12 days.

    1. That’s such a lovely comment to hear, Zelda, thank you. I was struggling a little with this week’s prompt but got a sudden burst of inspiration :). KL ❤

      1. Oh it was amazing and wonderful, a day brightener! I’m SO glad I found you through the blogging world–sometimes we just stumble onto someone we didn’t know we were missing 🙂 ❤ Life's good–blessings to you!
