    I am sitting here on Wednesday morning, watching the rain come down. The severe weather passed by us. I slept through the storm warnings last night, knowing that God was in control. Today would be a wonderful day to go back to bed with a good book and curl up under the covers. I actually enjoy days like today. I love the peaceful sound of the rain and the calmness of the day. As I get older, I realize that every day is special and something to be treasured, no matter what the weather. I hope you will do the same this week.

    KENTUCKYWEATHER. It sure is unpredictable, cold for a few days, then rain and warmer temperatures. Got a little break and turned the heat off and opened the windows for a couple days. As I write this, they are predicting stormy weather and then it will turn colder again with possible snow. You never know how to dress to go outside anymore. Oh well, we take it as it comes, can’t complain because it’s not going to change it.
