Rainy Day

We had such a lovely, rainy afternoon today. We had run errands in the morning and then returned after lunch. I was awakened during my nap by the rain and thunder. I continued to doze off and on for awhile just enjoying the sound of the rain on my window. Eventually, I got up to discover Sweetheart had made a pot of tea, so I relaxed a little longer with my tea, a few tea biscuits and The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Then Pumpkin woke from his nap and we were off and running again!

Sweetheart came from from work a week ago with the entire "Little House" series for me that he found at the thrift store on the way home from work. I've been enjoying rereading them. I love the entire series. I used to have the set when I was teaching, but had not been able to find them again when I looked last month. That's okay, the set he bought me is in much better condition than the one I had. Aren't the simple things in life just wonderful?

Oh, Kimberly, napping while it rains and thunders sounds just about perfect! ;o)

I love the Little House series. It was a joy to share it with my older daughter ~ sweet days!
