Winter Weather

A few days ago, we had some really nice rain. It was perfect. Not too much and not too little. Winds were very mild until late night. Even then the winds weren't too bad.

It's interesting that the rain actually lifted my spirits. I love how it sounds as it hits different surfaces. I love the smell afterwards. I just love the rain. It's so refreshing to me.

I am enjoying, as always, the winter months. These are the months where I get a few days off each month. It is a struggle to take a vacation with the day care. November, December and January, I get 4-day weekends!

This year, I am going on my first cruise at the end of January. I'm a little nervous. I don't like water, quite afraid of it. At the same time, I am excited and very much looking forward to it. I'm a little uneasy to leave my household. Yes, my kids are older but, I guess it's a mom thing. Just not use to it. I'm sure I will be fine once I'm on my way :).

I hope you have a great time on the cruise. We went on one once. It was fun but be warned - FOOD. Lots of it. I ate so much. Morning, mid morning, lunch, afternnoon tea, dinner and then more. I think they almost had to roll me off down the gangplank.

Glad to hear you are getting some time off. Much deserved.

Thank you ladies for your enthusiasm. I am quite excited. It really doesn't seem real just yet. I do plan to blog all my experiences. I would like to steal away just to rest and do nothing but enjoy the scenery if my girlfriends will allow it :).

Yes, I've been warned about all the food! I've heard of people gaining a few pounds just from a weekend on a boat! I am one to stop eating once I am full. Can't stand the smell of food once I'm full. Don't even like it on my hands. Hopefully, that will be the case on this cruise :). Thanks for the warning.
