It's Raining Cats and Dogs

Well, the weatherman was way off on the forcast today! It was supposed to be 92 and humid. Instead it is 72 and pouring rain. So much for outdoor activities.

This is a great day for sewwing, though. I got alot done, but I still have alot to do. I think I will bake something delicious instead. I love to bake, and since I found out how high my cholesterol is 2 years ago, I can't do it as often as I would like to. Oh well, what can you do? Applesause and splenda do not make cookies taste the same as butter and sugar do.

Days like today always remind me of getting off the school bus ,and the lights being on in the kitchen, and my mother baking cookies. It is one of my best memories from childhood. I do not think that my mother really baked everytime it rained ( I am the eldest of 6 children, she didn't have enough time), but in my memory she did.

I hope you have great chilhood memories that you can enjoy on rainy days too. Lauren

I love love love rainy days. The other day my husband asked me why, and I said, "because it means I probably don't have to spend any time outside." guess I'm not much of an outdoors person. lol.
