I couldn't sleep last night....

Awesome storm last night!!! Thunder, lightning, high winds....the whole shebang! But I woke up realizing I could have brownies for breakfast (I made them yesterday) and my day got brighter. I will need the treat and my coffee to give me the courage to walk my dog in this still rough weather....



I'm going to imagine that I'm the wind that is blowing up there in those tree-tops. When I get tired of the trees I'll imagine I'm gently waving down here in the ferns — and then I'll fly over to Mrs. Lynde's garden and set the flowers dancing — and then I'll go with one great swoop over the clover field — and then I'll blow over the Lake of Shining Waters and ripple it all up into little sparkling waves. Oh, there's so much scope for imagination in a wind! ~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you’d just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency. ~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons
