Rainy days

Rainy days are beautiful.

I don't think I could handle living in a place where it rained all the time. But the occasional rainy day is delightful.

Clouds hang low on everything. The air outside smells wonderful. I can wear a comfortable hoodie all day long. My kids get excited about simple things like carrying an umbrella and wearing boots. Warm dinners taste more delicious on chilly, rainy days.

Granted, if I had to spend a rainy day outside, I don't think I would like them so much. But as I have a lovely warm and dry house, these days are wonderful.

It's the simple things:)

I'm thankful for wheels on refrigerators. I'm not so thankful for spaces below refrigerators that are just big enough for bouncy balls.

Did it get a little crazy with the bouncy balls last night? I decreed this morning that all bouncy balls are henceforth banished to the playroom on pain of becoming trash.
