And check out my super classy thimbles (um, band aids)
Both older kids were engaged, Indigo in drawing a portrait of me quilting, actually. I found this to be quite amusing. I had never been the subject of a portrait before.
Then it started pouring. Pouring.
We sat on our covered back porch and "enjoyed the rain" as the kids said, until the downpour stopped about 30 minutes later. I love rain. I love the sound of it, the smell of it, how it makes everything so green and lush. Living in a state where rain is an infrequent but much needed visitor has made me appreciate the rain even more.
Speaking of Texas, I was out with the kids last week and saw this bumper sticker.
I just had to laugh... and stop to take a picture.
Yup, we're in Texas.
As for this afternoon, we are very thankful for the glorious rain. And for the quiet moments that accompanied it.
