A Blissful, Blustery Day

My idea of a great day:

A rare and welcome rainstorm in the desert.
Good friends visiting for the weekend.
The fire burning and candles lit all day long.
A soak in the hot tub while the rain falls gently on our heads.
Walking the dog in the desert, the usual dust subdued by the moisture.
Homemade bread and potpie aromas filling my home.
My husband working on this and that around the house.
My children milling around me.
A good chick flick before bed.

Color me happy.

I also wish I were there. We had no power for 52 hours. Those candles burning in our home was so that we could see not for ambiance. The inside temperature got down to 52 degrees. Lots of clothes and many blankets kept us warm over this blustery cold weekend. I did get some good reading time in. I'm more than half way through the book you left behind. Kyle keeps wanting to know why I am reading your book. (Because I have no power to watch a chick flick - that's why!!!)
