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!
