Dressing the part …

I don’t want to brag or anything but we got some real Fall weather here in my part of Southern California today. OK fine, it was for like 2 hours and it was rainy-ish. But I also saw some leaves on the ground that had changed color. It was chilly too! I had to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Sure, I might be sweating now, but I even wore boots. Whoa.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you dress the part!!!


Helmet hair …

I have curly hair and because of that I use A LOT of hair styling products in my hair. It gives me a false sense of security knowing that I’ve at least attempted to keep it in place and prevent it from forming a life of its own.

It rained here today (stay with me, I’m going somewhere with this). I didn’t bring my umbrella when I went out and I got caught in a pretty good downpour. I knew that my decent hair day was over at that point. Way way way over. If water hits my hair and I don’t immediately apply soap my hair takes matters into its own hands. If it’s not being washed it sees no reason for being wet and, in rebellion … humiliates me.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t have helmet hair!!!

Rattled …

I have been a trooper with this rain. No. Really. I’ve not complained one bit. And I am not a rain lover by any stretch. Not. At. All. I’ve found the rain rather pleasant. Well. As long as I don’t actually have to be out in it. HA! But as much as we have needed the rain, I’m starting to notice the wear and tear of it. Some of our streets are horrendous! Almost every where I go there is a road that needs some serious work. Today when I was headed to meet my best friend from high school for lunch I drove down a street that was crazy BUMPY. Probably the worst I’ve been on so far. My car was shaking and the noise was thunderous. I felt like I had to hang on to my steering wheel for dear life and pray I didn’t crack a tooth from bouncing around so much. OK. I exaggerated a little. But still. It was really bumpy. Really.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you weren’t rattled!!!

Waiting for something big …

Southern California is supposed to be getting some serious rain today. So far, where I am, it’s been a little windy and somewhat rainy. It’s been quite a few years since we have had any considerable rainfall, so I’m not sure if all the “hype” is going to be realized in a Noah’s Ark size storm. Perhaps we’re all just a little shocked that it’s actually raining again. HA!

Well, I hope you all have a day where something BIG happens!!!

More of a good thing …

Today is absolutely amazing! It looks and feels like a beautiful Spring day, but it’s still winter! It started off sunny and cool and it evolved into PERFECT. We have had so much rain in Southern California that I almost forgot how good this kind of weather feels. And don’t even get me started on how gorgeous our blue our sky is. Eeeeee! I want this. FOREVER.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you want MORE of a good thing!!!

Enjoy it while you can …

It’s raining. It has been for the past day. I usually don’t like the rain unless I’m inside. It’s nice to watch, but I don’t ever really want it to touch me, HA! For some reason this rain has been unusually pleasant for me. Perhaps it’s that I feel like this type of weather goes along with Christmas. I’m not sure. But it’s cozy. And I actually don’t mind being out in it. Living in Southern California I know that the rain will soon be gone. Until then, I’ll just appreciate it and allow it to make our holidays feel … um … more holiday-ier.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you enjoy it while you can!!!
