Rainy Days and Mondays

Today is anything but a rainy day but there's rain in the forecast and while everyone says "we need it", I can't help but dread the dark and gloomy days that accompany it. And so it seemed appropriate to think of a way instead to celebrate the drops that will be falling this weekend. My husband always tells me that life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass but about learning to dance in the rain. Here are my rainy day party ideas.

First of course, there's the decorations...
