Well, it's raining again today.. how about where you are? It's been pretty steady since sometime Sunday night.
But I'm not complaining. I actually love the rain.
Especially if I can just stay tucked in and cozy at home, with a candle lit and the windows open to hear it pounding against ground outside.
It's one of my favorites.
Evie and I have been hunkered down, for the most part. Thankfully she really does love books, because that is all she has been doing the last few days. Either sitting somewhere on her own, surrounded by books and "reading" or coming to find me with a book in hand. She reaches the book up to me and then says "cozy?" That means she wants to sit on your lap while you read her the book and get cozy with a blanket wrapped around both of us.
Another one of my favorites.
Somehow the rain is just so cleansing to me. Washes everything away and makes things look sparkly and new. Especially in spring. I love the vibrant green of the grass after a good rain. And I really love the gray blue sky and clouds during rain and storms.
How about you?

Last night I started uploading a bunch of pics from our trip to California last fall to make a photo book. I always use Shutterfly and have been happy with them. Uploading is always the longest/most annoying part to me, but worth it. Well, somehow I have a Groupon for a book, a free book code through email, discounts AND 2 free books from Target coupons. SO. I took that as a sign that I should get in gear and put together a book while things are FREE. Rainy day project for me.
But the 2 coupons from Target are only for new customers/accounts. I thought about opening another account under hubby's name, but didn't really want my pics in two different places. So I gave one away through Facebook last night. But I still have one left if anyone wants one!
Leave me a comment or email me at strangeandlovelyride (at) gmail (dot) com if you want it! First come first served.
1 free 8x8 photo book from Shutterfly
New customers only
