Finally A Rainy Day

It has been a very long time since rain has fallen for hours here in Alabama.  It started with a sprinkle today around 11:00 and as the afternoon has moved into evening, the rain drops have multiplied.  It is now a steady rain falling, a little bit chilly and the weather guys say this should go on for the next couple of days.  I am thrilled.

Jordan and Breeze had swim meets today.  They both had an impressive day, shaving time off their past meets and placing in each heat they competed in.  We hope they are creating a "Phillips" dynasty for the next several years on their swim team.

We did Christmas shopping yesterday and birthday shopping today.   December is full of family birthdays.  I had meant to come home and paint Christmas cards, but a lazy streak hit me hard this afternoon and I have done nothing but  read and watch it rain.   Tomorrow my siblings celebrate Christmas with a lunch at my sister's house.  This weekend has been non-stop.

I can't help but continue to say how grateful we are for the rain.  For over a month, every morning when I opened the front door I smelled smoke, finally no more.  I am sure there are some who are already complaining about this rainy day, but I can't.   Tomorrow is Sunday, I wish blessings of peace for you all and a day full of joy.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. I'm glad you got your rain finally.

  2. One of my favorite pleasures is a rainy day when I can sit with a good book and a cup of tomato soup. A small blanket over my legs a nd the sound of the rain at the window. It makes a perfect afternoon.
