Naining and Naining

When my daughter was 2, my parents took her to Six Flags on a camping trip.  It started raining and they were stuck inside looking out at the monsoon.  With not much to entertain a 2 year old, my Mama used the tape recorder to record her granddaughters little voice..she described the weather to Mama in her baby words.the phrase she used over and over was this. It's just naining and naining.. it became one of our family's phrases...

So, today...that is a perfect description of our weather.....

It just has to get warmer soon, doesn't it?

I hope you are having a good weekend and staying warm and dry..


  1. That is just the sweetest little story.

    I hope the cold "naining" stops for you soon and that the sun warms up your world soon.

  2. How cute! I am sure that Betsy loves reading this! It has been raining or "naining" all day here and has been so chilly - so much for global warming, uh?

  3. What a charming story. CC and I went to an enormous neighborhood yard sale in the nain because we lack good sense.

  4. I love that! Isn't it funny how these sayings gain a legacy in our families? We have so many that we still use and I'm sure we'll start collecting more as the grandkids grow. I love your garden - even in the nain! I hope it's warm and dry for you soon.

  5. It has been "naining and naining" here in the Kansas City area for days now, too. This morning there is no rain, but the skies are so cloudy it may as well be pouring! How did London and Seattle's weather somehow worm its way into the Midwest??!?!?!?!

    I hope things clear up and warm up there soon. Lord knows we're just "weathering the storm" and crossing our fingers here!!!!
