Rain

Today it's been raining the entire day. It started yesterday afternoon already so it basically rained non-stop for 24 hours. Last night it was really stormy outside with strong gushing winds and the rain was just pouring down. It was almost like one of those tropical storms.

This morning it was so dark and grey outside that I decided to light a candle for breakfast. It suddenly felt as if summer was over just like that and fall was here. I even decided to pack some of my summer skirts today. I remember how I when living in Alabama by now was getting sick and tired of the summer clothes. I usually had bought some nice new fall pieces and was eager to start wearing them. The summer season could almost feel way too long there and here today it felt so short and so sudden that summer is reaching it's very end.

Well it has been a good summer overall. Some sunshine and some rain but not too much rain to spoil an entire week. It has been a good summer and I am happy with all the places we have been to me and C during these three weeks. A great vacation.



The rain was still lingering in the air most of the day today, slowing down and picking up again until it finally stopped raining this evening. My last day of vacation promises much better weather and sunshine. So I get to end my vacation with some sunshine at least.

I det stora hela verkar ju sommaren varit bra och ni har haft superväder under semestern, skönt! Det ösregnade hela söndagen här för en vecka sedan. Jag fick massor gjort inomhus :)

Bra att det blir bättre imorgon iallafall!

Ha en fin söndag

Kram!

Lotta, ja jag måste säga att jag är nöjd med sommaren. Som du säger får man passa på att göra saker inomhus som man inte skulle gjort annars.
Kram!

Ja vi kokar fortfarande här borta i New Orleans! Men augusti är ju värsta månaden också. Jag längtar till hösten när det blir som en bra svensk sommar :-)

Du kan väl skicka litet regn. :) Här är så torrt. Det har blåst under helgen och det har yrt sand/jord. Jag skulle gärna ta litet uppfriskande regn nu. Du och C verkar ha haft en kanonsemester. Kram!

Sådär är det...
Jag brukar vara sjukt trött på mina sommarkläder i oktober innan det är dags att plocka bort dem.
Galet trött på dem.
Skönt med regn ibland, gillar det.
Kram!!
