thoughts on a rainy day

it's been raining here. a lot. all. week. long.

yesterday there was a short break, so little man and I made a quick run to the grocery store. big mistake. when we were leaving the store, it was raining, once again. so here i was, trying to load groceries into my car and push the cart back to where the carts go (what do you call those things? i'm totally drawing a blank right now.), all while holding a toddler, an umbrella, a big 'ol diaper bag full of amuse-the-baby-while-I-grocery-shop-tricks, and a coupon box that I'm terrified of dropping because they are filed in order because I am slightly anal. i'm sure i was quite the sight to see. needless to say, we were soaked when it was all over. Caleb seemed to enjoy it. i guess that's all that matters!

this rain does have me itching for fall. i look outside, and it's dark and gloomy and looks cold, and then i go outside, and it's 81 degrees and humid and i remember that we're in the south. the fall-like weather will tease us for the next couple of months until it officially decides to stick around. drives. me. crazy.

but in our house, fall is on. time for some homemade cookies, pumpkin bread, smelly candles, and some fall decorating. i might even crank up the air so i can snuggle on the couch with a quilt.

i love the fall, in case you couldn't tell!

now, on to more important things.....

this is my dad (grandpapi) with little man.....

tomorrow he is having surgery to clean out some clogged arteries that are leading to his brain. will you please pray for him?
