Rainy Day Monday
It started raining in the wee hours of the morning and didn't stop until mid afternoon. It was fantastic. I opened the windows throughout the house as the temperature hovered in the high 70s. We even slept with them open last night. What a rare treat for this part of the country where our usual highs are 105ish.
Aine and Benton splashed in the puddles created along our street, returning to the house soaked to their undies. Eamon walked through our muddy backyard letting the wet dirt squish through his toes. I made butternut squash soup in the crockpot, filling the house with delicious aromas. Dave didn't come home for lunch; his parking lot at work was flooded and parts of the freeway were closed.
It doesn't rain much here, but when it does, we all feel refreshed. It means extra books read, snuggles on the couch, arts and crafts and possibly movies. It was a crazy, wonder-filled rainy day.
