Second Chance Saturday: Week 158

Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to TAG ME in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Hi Nina Hollander 
Our homes should always be considered a refuge, should they?  I've always felt that way and am happy to have a comfortable place to hunker down. 

Have a great week and stay well.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 
We had a forecast for rain over the weekend but it never happened. It was cool, though. I've been doing ok with the isolation so far but I suppose once the weather really warms I'm going to feel the cabin fever increasing.  I will most likely have my first ever birthday all by myself.  That will be different.
