A Rainy Day!

I grew up in the beautiful Northwest state of Oregon and in the winter you would cuddle up on the couch with hot tea, a good book, a blanket and enjoy a cold rainy Saturday. We can already feel the effects of the storm its been over cast all morning and raining on and off. I'm prepared for the storm but I can't help but love days like this. I love days off from the blaring hot sun. It is different though; the air conditioning is still on I'm still in summer clothes but not sweating because of intense humidity. I still like to put the days plans on hold a little and cuddle up and read to the kids are bake some fun treats with them. The kids even like me to make hot chocolate. I should just make chocolate milk but they love to breakout the mugs and add the marshmallows every time its over cast which isn't that often. School is still delayed so I'm thankful to have my little guy still home with the rest of us. God is in control and we are all safe. The rain and wind is due to pick up this evening and last through the night as the bulk of the storm passes by to the west of us but the outer bans can still given us some intense weather.
