Rain and more Rain
Remember how yesterday I was saying that it was so hot here and we could really use some rain?
I guess my wishes were answered because by afternoon we had this huge fluffy dark clouds moving in and then the wonderful sound, you know the thunder and the cracking of the lighting followed by the scent of earth and big fat drops falling all over.
I was so happy to see that rain, I think for me, rain will always be one of my simple pleasures.
It rained all night and then it rained some more this morning, now it's gone but I can't help feeling sad and wanting more.
I'm just waiting to see the skies turn this beautiful color again.
So you may be wondering what I've been up to, I haven't exactly been blogging much or visiting any blogs have I? I'll try to catch up with everyone today.
I've been taking it easy, enjoying the last few weeks of Summer before schools starts again, spending loads of time with my kiddos, cooking and baking, watching movies and old tv shows and reading....boy have I been reading.
There's a ton of book reviews coming up for you guys soon and some of them you even have a chance of winning a copy for yourself, for now you can go and enter my current giveaway which is running until Sunday. I also have some great Christian books to read and review, I'm super excited about sharing those with you all.
Life just flies by, there's days that I feel like there are not enough hours for everything I want to achieve, but I've learned to just let it go and not fuss about it, there's always tomorrow.
A couple of you emailed me and asked why my blog doesn't get as many comments as it used to and quite frankly I have no clue. It may just be the summer and people being busy and not having time to read or maybe tastes have changed and some have moved on?
It doesn't bother me, it used to, when I first start blogging I wanted so badly to make sure I posted something that would try and garner a bunch of comments but then I quickly realized that even with blogging, there's cliques and groups and it's something I've never enjoyed and steered clear of in school so I'm about to embark on that now.
This blog is a reflection of me and what I do on a daily basis, it's a place for my family and catch up and stay up to date and I think that's what I concentrate on, just being me and if I get a lot of comments that's great but if I don't that's fine too, there are some ladies who have been my readers for years now and they drop in often and I think that's what matters, right?
I'm stepping off the soapbox now, I'm so not into speeches LOL
I'm off to get dinner started, I'm making Chicken Pot Pie and for dessert a Blender Pie, then it's more laundry folding and ironing, cleaning up and bathes and bedtime and tv and all of that.
I do hope you're all having a blessed day and enjoying your summer!
