It's Raining

it's raining.
finally.
it  was 110 degrees today...with lots of rain clouds surrounding the valley.
but, no rain.
which meant lots of humidity.
it was miserable out.
i mean...MISERABLE.
but, tonight..as i was making dinner...it began to rain.
we heard the rumble of thunder.
saw the flashes of lightning.
and smelled the raindrops.
ohh...that wonderful smell.
you have never smelled a rain storm until you have been in the arizona desert.

we munched on pizza (left over)
gnocchi
and salad.
and mr. c and i enjoyed a lovely glass of pinot noir.

i have lots to do.
i need to finish the goody  bags (pictured)
for cade's birthday party tomorrow.
why?
i'm a glutton for punishment.
truly.
nothing like waiting 'till the last minute either.
{it drives mr. c crazy.}
and, i have been accepted to participate in two big boutiques come november...
guess i should get busy.
and the house needs cleaned...
i'm sure i need to bake something...
and i need to email my dear friend,
{from my youth}
whom i have recently reconnected with.
she makes me smile.

but, for now...i will tuck my kids in...
enjoy vino with my husband..
and watch the beautiful rain.
