The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

Raining on my parade... or other things

Well, a rainy yucky weekend totally bamboozled our plans this weekend. A fishing rodeo for the boys was cancelled until summer weather is over (the wet part-not the hot part, crazy fisher-people). Then, our Saturday afternoon plans of floating down the river or swimming at the springs were both wrecked with thunder and wind... driving rain. The poor boys got stir crazy chilling with grandma, while my wonderful groom worked. We did take them to see the 3D G-Force movie, with the spy guinea pigs. It was funny in parts, great 3D effects. The boys loved it. This was a swap weekend... the girls went north with the girl cousin and the boy cousin came down for some guy time. The weather persists as a plan destroyer today... When I left home today, I noted a beautiful altocumulus mackerel sky... which immediately made me thing of the saying "Mackerel Sky, mackerel sky... never long wet, never long dry." That's right, just enough to ruin your plans. Poor mini-dew at the amusement park with her dad is getting rained on...

Fortunately, one very important part of our plans was not rained out. My wonderful groom celebrated x years on Sunday, and in honor of his big day, I baked him a 4 layer milk chocolate and french vanilla cake, covered in whipped milk chocolate frosting, which I then allowed the kids to "decorate". They did indeed.Have a great day!!!
