The Vacation is Over, but Life is Still Beautiful

John's mom left for the airport this morning.  As if in disappointment, the clouds rolled in and rain drizzled.  It is hard to have her go home. We've had a wonderful week:  Disneyland, California Adventure, the Getty, Solvang, a matinee showing of The Help, and lots of talking and laughter. 

But, alas, it's time to return to our regularly-scheduled programming of schoolwork and housework. This morning as I opened the blinds, this rainbow appeared, seemingly to cheer us on.  While I love the adventure of vacations, I also love being cozy inside my house while the blustery winds blow outside.  It's the perfect day to curl up and read, while a pot of soup simmers on the stove.

Thankful thought of the day:  Thanks for sweaters, shelter, soup, and other warm things!
