Lazy Weekend

It is raining cats and dogs. Or maybe geckos and frogs. Lots of rain.

And it almost feels cool* enough for some cheesy potato soup. Mmmm!

Just the sort of day to lay around reading and napping! So far today I have taken one two hour nap and read half a book.** Perfect! Unfortunately reading and napping does not interest the kids so much.

They were playing in the garage, watching the rain, but I just saw Emily putting on her poncho. I have a feeling I should get out some towels and heat up water for hot cocoa. It's not often that hot cocoa sounds good here.

There goes John in his poncho. I wonder why he's not wearing his rain boots?...

Do you have any weekend plans?

Later tonight we are heading into Honolulu for the Symphony. And dinner, I hope!

* if's funny how 78* with a slight wind can feel cool.

Funny how napping and reading doesn't interest the kids much. Blog surfing and sewing don't interest my kids much, either.

Good job with the 3 pounds!

I love that book! Enjoy! It is one that you don't want to end.

Nice weekend! I love that the kids were out in their ponchos and rainboots in the rain. That's fun!

How was the symphony? That sounds so grown up :)

mmmmmmmm, cheesy potato soup! I wish that didn't sound good everyday. HOt choc either. I gain too much weight when it's cold. I could use some Hawaiian cold right about now!

I will take your cool 78* over my high of 65* which was a first for today. As the tempratures keep dropping I know I will miss living in South California.

Your evening sounded fun. I went to see Mamma Mia with a friend and my daughter.
