It's Raining Horses and Sheep


I don’t mean to have to many posts about rain, but “geesh, it’s been raining for 3 days!” I do love rain. I know I said that. I still do. It’s just that the rain is different here. It really rains! Not the southern California drizzle, drizzle, rain, drizzle, tiny bit of thunder, drizzle. No this is RAIN, rain, RAIN, !!!!RAIN!!!!! THUNDER LIGHTNING, rain, drizzle, !!!RAIN!!!!, RAIN… and so on. So on for 3 days so far.

Last night we got home late, {I’ll tell you from where when I have the nerve!} Dinner had just been cooked and whamo, the electricity is off! Do I know where the flashlights are? No. I let the kids play with them the other day. Now only one works and it’s about 3 inches long and I need divine intervention to find it. Thanks. I found it. Now we are telling the kids to eat their dinners fast and go to bed! Paige is having a blast using her acting skills, “Oh, sorry Troy I didn’t mean to hit you across the face so hard, It’s just in the dark, I can’t see you!” Yeah, right! We get everyone to bed with much confusion. I use the rest of the flashlight battery to read my book about being “content”. And here in the dark, with my book, no dishwasher, a tiny house, frizzy hair and sleeping family, I am content. I am very content.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A GREAT AUNT!!!!!
WE MISS YOU BRIE!!!

No electricity! That is rough!, We had it turned off for a few hours a few months ago and I was dying...

I can't even imagine having that much rain, is it still really humid with all that rain or does it cool things off?

The boys school schedule sounds great, have the kids picked up on the language at all?

The rain does cool things off. The temp will say 78 degrees, but feels like 90. :)
Last night it was about 65 degrees, so nice.

Love the rain, and love that you are happy. That is awesome. Please feel free to email the story as to why you were out late, my curiousity is overwhelming. :-)

You are a blogging maniac. I love it! I miss it when my peeps don't blog, so you really feed my need. The other blogs I read have really died out lately.

You escaped our southern California rain/hailstorm/tornado last week. We've always told our kids that they woudn't have to worry about tornados here so when Ashley caught us checking it out on the news she freaked out "Is that at our house?" Well within 5 miles but Jeff told her it was far away. Jacob had just earned his weather belt loop and pin a few days before the storm and his leader got up at pack meeting and had to apologize to the boys for telling them that we never have tornados here:) Of course we don't have the heat to contend with, in fact I keep having to pull out the warm clothes just when I thought I could put them away for awhile.

What is your "content" book? Sounds interesting.

One thing for sure, you can appreciate it when the sun shines again!
