….but you really never know until the clouds are right over us and I start to hear the “tat tat tat” on the roof of the screened-in porch.
We have no plans today, except maybe a quick trip to the grocery store. Between rain clouds, hopefully.
I like “no plans” because then I don’t have to worry about when Baby K “has” to get up and go somewhere. I really dislike waking a napping baby. But sometimes I have to.
I also don’t like “no plans” because I feel like we need to be doing something. But really, we don’t…
So, here I sit, savoring my coffee, while sitting on the sofa in my p.j.s and watching Little G play with his favorite toys while Baby K sleeps in.
I’m already looking forward to the holiday weekend. But I’m also pensive about the fact that this is the 5 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which GREATLY affected many of our friends here just a few short years ago.
Some lost property, some lost relatives. Some lost both.
I can FEEL how this time of the year is hard for them, every year.
Part of the reason I look forward to the weekend is that we are contemplating a trip to New Orleans. I’ve never been and I also feel the need to support and celebrate it. And honestly, I’m also just itchin’ to get out of town.
So yes, it may rain a little today and as it does, I will think of and pray for those who are still hurting and wish peace for my friends…
P.S. I’m going to do Past Post Parade again tomorrow and I would LOVE it if you would link up with a post of yours from last year at this time (or even 2 or 3 years ago!). And if you haven’t been blogging that long it can be ANY past post that you like. So go on and peruse your archives and then come back here tomorrow and join the fun! Now, I gotta go find an ‘old’ post myself…
