Here comes the rain again...

The loves of my life - my kids and my nieces and nephews...

Rainy days are here!  We got spoiled by the warm southern California winter weather.  We had an interesting day.  It started with me getting up before everyone and having a blissful 2 hours to myself to sip coffee and listen to the rain.  We then lit candles put on 95.9 the fish and listened to music while tidying up the house.  Stace braved the elements and went to the grocery store.  Later we tackled doing laundry in the rain - not so much fun...but got 9 loads done!  We finished the night off with a yummy pork chop dinner with fresh fruit and salad.  Taylor and Trenton took advantage of the break in the rain and walked to the store to buy some yogurt, granola and berries for dessert.

I like it when things are a bit calmer.  Don't get me wrong - the day was filled with playing referee between the boys and moments of frustration...BUT for the most part it was enjoyable.

Now our week will start tomorrow and we are in for lots of rain.  We'll see how getting the kids to school in the rain goes!  I love the rain when you can stay indoors...I hate getting all cold and wet!

I pray that you had a great 3 day weekend!  I got to go see LEAP YEAR for the second time around yesterday and it was as great as the first!  I love movies!  I have now seen LEAP YEAR and IT'S COMPLICATED  - 2 great movies!  I look forward to seeing some of the other romantic comedies that are "Coming Soon".  What a great way to escape life for a couple of hours! is time to hit the hay...
Goodnight all!
