It's raining...

This is really the first significant rain fall we've had since we moved here. The ironic part of this is that when we started telling folks that we'd be moving back here, they kind of sighed at us with sympathy and commented about how it does nothing but rain here.

Just to set the record straight, we only say that it rains so much here, so the people out THERE don't move out HERE. How do I know this? Because the only green spots in my lawn are where the swimming pool and the slip and slide were. Everything else died. Because it never rained.

This rain business is just FINE for Sebastian, who bounced out of bed today excited to use his...well, you guessed it...his Spiderman umbrella! It doesn't take much to make this kid happy. Well, I take that back. The fact that this rain has a chance of being accompanied by thunder storms was thrilling to him. He was standing out there at the bus stop today, looking over the mountains, and trying to pick out thunder clouds, and mentioning that it would be really cool if there was a tornado to go with it.

Should I be concerned that my child is a natural disaster freak? gulp.

I took this picture of him in his red jacket yesterday, and I thought it was such a cool picture that I had to post it today. What a beautiful kid, eh?

This morning we had a discussion about what he was going to be for Halloween. He announced that he wants to be Dracula...again. I tried to argue with him that he couldn't be Dracula, because he was Dracula just LAST year.

I think though, that he spent some time thinking about this before I ever brought it up, because he felt it necessary to remind me that he was new here, and since no one here has ever seen his Halloween costumes, that he could start over again, and be whoever he wants to be, and that THIS year, he's going to be Dracula.

I got owned by a seven year old before I even had my first cup of coffee today.

My progress with the Clapotis (my current knitting project) is going very well. It's really starting to take shape and I'm really excited to finish it and see what it looks like when it's done. It's a really easy pattern that I have memorized for the most part, and that really seems to make things move along quickly. I live for the rows where I get to drop stitches. Annie should be starting hers soon, so we can compare notes and be Clapotis addicts together.

Well, I'm off. Now that I'm feeling better, I have a lot of catch up to do around the house...it appears that while I was in a Nyquil induced stupor, that everything managed to fall down around my ears, and this is not a good thing when you consider that I have a Cookie Lee open house here on Saturday, lol. I need to go grocery shopping too, but I think I'm going to wait until after the mail gets here, just in case one of the cookbooks I found on Ebay managed to arrive today. :)

Have a good safe day, everyone.
