After the record breaking heat wave that we have been having, I am so thankful to see the rain. This was a view from our front porch last evening. It was a difficult drive home from work yesterday as a huge storm moved in right at 5:00. The wind was blowing around 45 mph and lightning was striking all around and it was pouring down rain. Having said all of that, I felt my mood lighten and I welcomed the rain. We got home to discover that our electricity was off which didn't surprise us in the least. We just changed into something comfy, opened some chips and salsa, made a couple of turkey sandwiches and ate dinner on the front porch, while watching it rain. By the time, we were finished with dinner, the electricity was back on again. It was a beautiful evening!
This morning I woke up to another beautiful rain storm and I thanked God that it was my day off and it was raining and that I had absolutely nothing to do outside of the house today. I can stay home and rest and enjoy a day of peace and quiet AND rain. My weary soul needs this time of rest and rejuvenation. It's Friday and I still have two beautiful days of my weekend left before Monday rolls around and we have absolutely no plans. *whew* In fact, I might not leave my
recliner house all weekend! What about that?!
I have been quite busy this morning though!
