It's raining, it's pouring… I never understood that nursery rhyme; is it about a man who has a concussion and dies? Anyway my hair isn't happy, I couldn't wear a lot of my shoes, and I didn't want to get out of bed today. This is what I was able to wrangle together and this is all the photos my husband could get without us getting completely soaked.

How was your weekend?  Saturday my husband was hired to photograph a wedding and went along as his assistant.  He had two cameras, I had one to capture a different angle/effect and hand him batteries and such when needed.  It was a gorgeous wedding at River Farm – the couple was lovely and they had a really elegant yet totally fun event.  Yesterday was Father's Day – we didn't do much for it (other than me teaching Emerson how to yell “Happy Fathers Day Daddy!” and buy him a Misto ir?t=whaevewomneei 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B00004SPZVwhich he has wanted for a long time).  We headed to the farmers market and then the local cafe for brunch.  Emerson went down for a nap and we watched Oscar and Lucindair?t=whaevewomneei 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=0679777504, and then we made pork loin and collard greens for dinner.  Pretty low-key but we wouldn't have wanted anything different!

    You caused me to Google it!  I found that it was first noted in 1939 by Charles Ives.  However I also found on, “The poor weather conditions in line one reflect the genocide committed
    against Irish Catholics whilst the last three lines are most likely a
    wish that Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector of England, will die in
    his sleep.”  I prefer the idea that it’s about God, however wouldn’t want “the Old Man Upstairs” to die from a head wound… 🙂

    I was listening to “It’s Raining, It’s Pouring” By Peter Paul and Mary and my husband remarked “You know that song is supposed to be about God, right? The “Old Man Upstairs” (We don’t believe in that type of God..) I was totally blown away! Never had realized that was probably the history of the song/
