A Taste of the Future

Today, on August 24, 2010, a cold front came through. Anyone living within a 500 mile radius from here as been feeling the heat lately. You could almost here an audible "Ahh...." as everyone exhaled a sigh of relief. This cooler weather and rain is definitely an answered prayer. At least for me. 8-22-10_edited-1 As a child I loved summer. It meant school was out, vacation, camp, and my birthday. As I have become an adult I started to resent summer. HOT hot days, sweating, mowing, kids were out of school, and camp. When kids are out of school and have way too much free time with no parent guidance, bad things happen. Since my hubby is a youth minister we get to hear all about the things that go on. But things have begun to change. Kids went back to school yesterday, and a cold front came through this morning and brought rain with it. It was surely God's timing as yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far. It was a miserable day. I even cut my finger open. Not out of frustration from the heat just being a goof. On a side note, you should not pry open a can with your thumb, bad things happen. Blood everywhere, well just down my arm. Back to the weather. Today is much cooler, I know that it will not last but I can't help but to hope that it lingers. At least for my sanity. With the cold front came strong winds. Which was partly great because I opened my house and let the wind blow through and air out my house with the sweet scent of cool rain, Yummm.... The wind also did this to our awning..... fallen awning This is not the first time this has happened. The other time was in a crazy storm a few weeks ago. The repairs we made to it just snapped in the wind this morning. We shall fix it again. Oh, and by "we" I mean "he" as in my hubby. Love you hubby. As I was out trying to straighten the awning I noticed the great lighting on our "barn". barn org So pretty. I may have to have some fun with this pic today. I'll show you the results later. This is what I saw when I came back in from fixing the awning. Cowan lounging My sweet munchkin lounging watching Sesame Street eating his lunch. He is giving the "I see you mom but I am pretending you are not there." look. See... it is in the eyes. Hopefully the cold front will cool everyone down, even if it is just for a day. It gives us a taste of Fall. The best time of year. Enjoy
