The Weather it Continues
Today is grey and blustery with the skies opening up on us. With rain this time, not snow. Which is a. good. thing. Rain is good. The ground is drinking it up thirstily, (is that even a word? my spell check passed it so I guess it is.) and grass is starting to take on a nice green. The hundred km an hour winds (60mph) that brought them though, not so much fun. I could live without that. But as long as the buds continue on sprouting I guess I'll put up with even that.
This kind of weather always makes me want to find my book, my reading wrap, and my nice cup of coffee. (And I am reading a really, really good book btw. " The Silent Gift." See my sidebar. Have to tear myself away from it.) But I don't think the kids would be thrilled with a day like that so we will be making Mother's Day cards and gifts instead. If I didn't think I'd lose one of them to the wind we'd go jump in a few puddles. But I don't think I'll risk that. Might be hard to explain to their parents.
So lot's of coloring, painting, glue and sparkles are in my immediate future. Hopefully, I'll be able to resurface to that book and wrap tonight. I might even turn on the electric fireplace. Yup, when I get cozy, it's no holds barred.
