Yesterday wasn't rainy at all but all my kids had conspired and did something naughty yesterday so they were grounded from the backyard today. I know, torturing not just them but also myself. My kids will play outside for hours! Well, with how windy it was today with heavy rains, it turned out that I wouldn't have let them out their anyway but they didn't know that. They were begging me to go out and I reminded them that they were grounded.

Beautiful, Dreamy, Rainy Day
I wish I could have rested more today. Maybe I should have. It doesn't rain here very often. When it does, we all think it's so neat it's hard not to keep looking out the windows. Heck, when it rains here, some schools even shut down. No joke. Being I homeschool, well, my school was open for the day. It was also my husband's night out with his friend so we were going to be alone tonight. Around the time it was to get dark, our power went out. I had just enough light peeking in that I quickly gathered the few candles I had and one flashlight. The kids were scared once it got really dark. We left a couple of windows open to hear the rain and there was a tornado warning. Well, the wind slammed our bedroom doors shut and it would make the kids scream. They kept opening the doors back put to have them only get slammed again. Finally, I shut the windows. When the power went back on, I very quickly turned on every light in the house. I hate the dark and I rarely have our lights off in the house unless we are gone. Anyway, I thought it was so beautiful outside and I knew our flowers just drank it up.
