How I started my day...


At 6:00 am this morning, rain was pelting my house, wind was whipping and driving the rain. Then I heard...

drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip

and I thought "that doesn't sound quite right". Well, low and behold the ceiling that meets right in my doorway of my dining room and front room was leaking. I don't recommend starting your day (or ending it for that matter) like this. I called my husband at work ~ did I really think he was going to rush right home? What could or would he do with the rain and wind the way it was? He knew exactly where the problem was and on the phone told me to get some plastic, open up our 2nd floor upstairs window and try to get the plastic out the window and on the roof, then close the window down on the plastic. At this point, I think I had more rain on me than on the floor. Luckily, the rain (or really the wind driving the rain) slowed down and is now stopped. My ceiling is no longer dripping. We now have to do some repairs :(

BUT...

This was how I ended my day ...



My wonderful grandchildren are the light of my life. They brighten my day no matter how dark and dreary. Kids are kind of like that aren't they? I think we can learn a lot from them.

Rain in the morning and such sunny faces in the evening. I'm glad the end of your day was better. Your GKs are adorable!

Sorry your roof is leaking, but look at those cute faces, and that alone makes all things better!

What a horrible feeling of what do I do now, as the rain is pouring through the ceiling. We lost the gutter on our house during that storm yesterday. But I like to think there is a bright spot in every day and those sweet faces, I believe, are proof of that. Isn't it wonderful being a Grandmother?
