On a Rainy Day in April

I love stormy days. It rained here pretty much non-stop yesterday and I was so happy. Perhaps it's the Washington in me, but I find being all warm inside with rain beating on my window incredibly comforting. I think thunder is a way of yelling at everyone to go inside and be with people they love.

Georgia and I spent the day napping, watching Shirley Temple movies and sewing. I don't usually have such lazy days, but with the rain, I threw my to-do list out the window and took advantage of the time and got caught up with some projects. I made my house smell like Willams-Sonoma, made a teacup candle, a diaper pouch system for a friend, a shirt for Georgia, and a cloud pillow because, why not?

I ate peanut butter filled pretzels. I drank tea.

Scott didn't get home until midnight because he was doing homework on campus. Georgia and I missed him as we cuddled up in her big teddy bear and read stories and scriptures before bed. When he got home, he caught up on some shows and commented on how "productive" I'd been. He will always see the good in me.

And while the day is still overcast, I feel like the sun peeking through is urging me to get back to being productive- make a meal plan for next week and fold the laundry
I'm okay with this.
I'm grateful the rain helped me take a little break yesterday. I'm grateful Georgia was happy to play at my feet (we've been pretty busy and I think she needed a quiet rainy day too).
I'm grateful for what a beautiful day the clouds can give.
