“The winds of change are blowin'”

Husband said that to me at 3am last night, in a half asleep daze as 50mph wind gusts sounded as though they would rip something from or on top of the house. As I sat there on the bed with a cup of tea and sucking on a lemon drop, I couldn’t help but crack up laughing at his revelation. The wind was so loud, I only slept about 2 hours.

This is the thing I hate about the fall/winter turnover. We go from a near 60 degree day yesterday, to high wind advisory last night which leads to our first possile snow fall this evening. Now husband has horrible sinus pressure/congestion, I usually get a horrible sore throat or head cold anf then my kiddos have the runny noses and cough.

We had a nice evening last night though. My parents brought over pizza and a copy of ‘Madagascar’. We had a little picnic in the family room and watched the movie together.

I think I’ll go pop a movie in and head back to the couch with my hot cup of tea and snuggle up with the kiddos under my old, tattered quilt. I intend to stay in my jammies today. There will be a nap involved.

  1. It sounds like y’all had a great evening with the picnic and the movie!  I love doing simple things like that.  It just makes you so happy to be surrounded by people you love.
    Aren’t the old, tattered quilts the best???  That makes me want to snuggle under mine and read my book.  I may get a chance to do that later this afternoon once I get all my housework done.  Have a good day!!!
