There's a big storm headed our way as I write this. Friday and Saturday we got lots of rain, and Sunday and Monday we're supposed to get heavy rain. They are calling it a 'flash flood watch.' But I think it's God cleansing the woods. Do you know how many fires we had up here this Summer?
I did get some rain seeping in my back porch area, and the cardboard box which holds my photo albums got wet underneath. I immediately went to the store, and bought a big plastic bin to put them in. There are 26 albums from when my kids were growing up, and I still hold on to them. There were three albums that didn't fit in the bin, so I have to get another one soon. Now they are all organized for my children. If you're wondering why she keeps all those albums.......Oh, my friends, I was a stay-at-home mom with three children for many many years, and that was my life! I have so many memories in those pictures. I was with those little ones every day and all day, and I had lots of sweet moments with them. Doesn't Jess look like Francesca here? I remember putting pink make-up on her cheeks to make them rosy.
I looked out the window one day,
and saw this.....eeeeek! I took a picture from inside cause they still scare me haha. I know, it's kind of crazy living in the mountains and being afraid of squirrels........but I am.
My poor pink rose drenched with rain.
I have some Halloween candy in case any kids stop by.
I love this picture of Mia looking through the Halloween goodies. I gave the kids that witch on top. She twirls and cackles when you press her arm.
And her witchy fingers on Zoom.
I'll leave you with a couple pictures of the storm.
Oh, I wish you could see Fall here when the rain had stopped. Its so pretty. But we'll have two more days of heavy rain.
Have a fun Halloween week.
