A Happy Rainy Monday!

It was a lovely rainy morning here yesterday!
A hot mug of tea along with a bran muffin while 
watching a little news about what was in store 
for the day’s weather was on the menu
as I sat and planned out my day.

My hubby and I were awakened
by heavy thunderstorms moving by overhead.
Some lightning and not a little rain 
dropped down upon
the little town of Sanger.
It was sooo nice to 
have to go outside
until the rain let up!
This morning reminded me of another rainy day 
we had at our old home…

When it was cold and windy outside
inside was always nice and toasty
with a crackling, hissing fire
glowing away 
in the stone fireplace.
Candles flickering atop the mantel
spread their glow
and light
around the room ~
especially nice and heartwarming!
Pouring a second cup of Winter Time tea,
thoughts about the holidays and 
what I hope to find
here in Texas 
ran through my head.
Our new home is about an hour-and-a-half
north of Dallas up in the hills.
Driving around the freeways
I’ve seen billboard signs
Holiday at the Arboretum
in downtown Dallas.
Maybe I’ll head down there later this week
and make a day of it!
I’m needing a kickstart to this holiday season
and some inspiration.
What is inspiring you this
time of year??
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing
the final Tombstone photos
about the Architecture and Beauty I found there
in that historic city filled with saloon and gunfights.
Later in the week, I’ll be sharing the beautiful
ornaments I found online
and finally broke down and bought…
{silvery and swirly etherealness!}
Oh, and I found some flowers that I’ve never
had the good fortune to find in
Southern California.
They will be coming your way soon.
Have a great day!
Barb 🙂
