Here we are at the beginning of another new month. It's a rainy start to this Monday but I'm sure the grass and flowers are enjoying their bath. Two days of rain after so much dry weather is a welcome sight. Normally I complain about a rainy day but I'm happy to stay in and enjoy this dismal day. The weekend flew by. I went to visit my mom yesterday but didn't stay long as the skies were ominous and threatening. Right after I got home we had a bad thunderstorm so I was smart to leave when I did. My daughter gave me a good book which I started to read and I love when I become immediately engrossed in a good story. As for today, not much happening in my neck of the woods. How about you?

I worked this morning, and when I checked my phone as I was leaving our son texted me that he had left the cottage 20 minutes before. I thought about the drive that he has and asked him if he'd like to meet in town for a burger. We met and tried a new place, but got our meals to go so that we could come home and enjoy them here. Now him and Ellie have left for their own home. Its a warm afternoon, I'm not up to much after working this morning.

I'm glad you made it home before the storm hit yesterday. Finding a good book is always an awesome thing, I haven't read any in a while because I haven't had the time lately. My husband is supposed to be home for part of today so we will be spending time with him. =)

We got some much needed rain here last night as well. Judging by the water level in various containers left outside we got at least 3 inches. Unfortunately it came down very hard and fast, so most of it didn't have a chance to soak in, but just ran off down into the stream.
