Quand la vie te donne des citrons…

That's right, when life gives you lemons... I make lemon earrings! :)

I put these sweet little earrings together last night. Sure, it's not summer anymore, but that doesn't mean you can't wear a sweet, citrus-ey pair of earrings to juice things up during the cold winter months!

Speaking of the cold, I checked the forecast this morning, and it looks like our awesome autumn weather is over. We've had beautiful, clear days showing off the bright leaves and warming the crisp weather, often all the way up to 70! Well, this morning's forecast on KGW shows a seven day look-ahead filled with rain and fog each day! I'm sure that's going to freak out my friend Amanda, a new reporter at KGW. She mentioned over the weekend how much rain she saw in the forecast. Before moving here in September, Amanda lived in Florida for a couple of years. Poor thing, (yes for both living in Florida and now dealing with rain). I don't mind the rain at all. In fact, some of my favorite days are those rainy days that clear up just enough in the afternoon so there are sunbreaks splitting through puffy clouds.

In fact, I can remember ever since I was young loving the rain. I used to go to summer camp in Colorado for a week or two each summer. I remember one year laying in my top bunk during our afternoon mellow-out time, writing letters home, reading books, and writing in my journal, with the rain pounding down on the tin roof just feet away from my cozy sleeping bag. I think there's something about the rain outside that makes me appreciate being in my warm condo in bed or on my couch or reading in a great chair. Listening to the elements come down outside, refreshing the environment, while I'm warm and comfortable inside is so comforting!

Well, that's it for now! Time to go plug away on the Romeo and Juliet unit for the Freshmen! :)
