Some days all you need is a little rain.

There is something about a rainy day in August that always has me turning towards September. Perhaps it is the chill, the need for socks and long pants. Perhaps it is the longing for quieter days spent around the home cooking, drinking a warm cup of tea. More likely, it is the coming season peaking around the corner to see if anyone is paying attention.

Hurricane Dan blew through today. A steady rain beat on the roof all day. On the stove top, a big pot of chicken soup was simmering. Hubby took some time to relax and play his guitar. The boys played together with legos. The elder brother teaching the younger the ways of the lego master. Our cares are still heavy and sometimes dominate discussion; today was no exception. But still, we needed the rain to keep us indoors gathered around a table ....just hanging.

I wish your cares would bear less weight and although I know eventually they will ... this is the tough part.

I too hunkered down and in ... and made a large pot of tortellini soup. Ahhhhhhhhhh
