It's raining!

Such good news.....I'm excited.....I don't even care that it's a week-end day. Waking up to a steady rain has to be one of the most comforting sounds on earth. Well, maybe next to the sound of  waves on a beach. But I never woke up to that sound. I would love too, though.

It is now a cool, drizzly kind of day. A good afternoon nap kind of a day. But I can't nap. I have guests. My daughter Marcy, her hubby Scott and their sweet little Paityn ate lunch with us. They will soon go to their house where we will gather to watch a very important football game. No one wants to watch it here. We don't have a huge TV......something that is very necessary for true sports fans =) Our kids love the Eagles. Our Grandson Andrew loves the Cowboys. Poor boy takes quite the ribbing from his Aunts and Uncles. Since his Nana really doesn't prefer any team, I stand up for him and rejoice when he rejoices. It's all good natured fun!

I also have a reminiscing kind of afternoon today. My sisters Jean and Mary Ellen and I have been invited to a 50th wedding anniversary. We all helped this couple as they had their children. I washed stacks of dishes, helped clean, picked vegetables, helped to can or freeze them and babysat when I was a young teen. I think they may have had 5 children at that time. Their family now numbers 109 (including the parents, 12 children, 4 great-grandchildren and the rest are grandchildren!). Several live in other states. Today they will all be gathering at the family homestead to celebrate their parents. They want us to meet their family and to walk through the farm house to reminisce. They will be soon moving to a smaller home and their youngest son will move into the farmhouse when he marries in November. Should be a wonderful time!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Sounds like a great morning to me! I love to listen to the rain, but got totally soaked yesterday:) That wasn't so much fun but I know we desperately need it!

Enjoy your visit with the family and the football games!
