Recent blessings:

     Thursday morning brought a splendid surprise on the bus ride to work. It was very dark, cloudy, and a little rainy, it hardly seemed as if the sun had come up yet, so I was shocked to see a piece of a rainbow as we drew close to the city. Turns out just both ends of the rainbow were visible, along with some sullen colors from the sunrise along the horizon. What a treat--it's been many years since I've seen a morning rainbow!

     My Cuttle PoadTM that I won on eBay with million-word celebration money arrived on Thursday...and the poor box got splashed on by gusts of rain for a good hour before I got to it. So I'm very grateful it was still pretty dry inside. My tenth PoadTM is just fine, as is the COA with Melody's sketch on it. Yay!

     I was feeling on Thursday as if I was getting sick, and had a horrid gut-ache most of the afternoon, so I wasn't happy when I got some water in the closet Thursday evening. I wanted to go to bed early and ward off sickness--not spend the night bailing! But thank God, the rain slowed up enough and the flooding was minimal enough, that I went to bed early and didn't feel prodded to get up at all--and I'm feeling a fair bit better today. Hurrah!

So glad you're feeling better! Everyone at my school is getting horribly sick; I hope I don't, just because I love the winter weather so much--I am an ex-summer person who had a change of heart after spending too long in the tropic. :P

Sounds like gorgeous weather! The most fantastic mornings and evenings are on cloudy/overcast days, no?

I liked summer as a kid because it meant no school and birthday time. Then I got my first summer job--which was outdoors. That did it. ;)

There have been some incredible cloudscapes lately. Though I do appreciate blue skies if I haven't seen one in a couple weeks!

Glad to hear you won another Poad and that it was safe from the rain.
What is a cuttle?
That was neat with the rainbow.
I do not think I have ever seen a morning rainbow.

Melody decided to call them Cuttle PoadsTM because the pattern she painted on them reminds her of a cuttlefish.

Morning rainbows are certainly rare around here! I'm trying to remember if I've seen one since the one I saw back in 2000 that I used in my first Geren book.
