As a kid, I would have loved these temps but as you get older, all you can think about is what is still on your to-do list that you don't have the energy to do anything about.

It's a Rainy Day...

 The clouds are looking ominous so I think that it might be the perfect day to work on the family tree. I just remembered a story about my little sister tripping and falling hands first onto a wood cook stove.  You have no idea the blisters that she had. Her hands were covered!  I wonder if she ever told her own kids about that story?  That was also  when she found out that she was allergic to sulpha... another little bit of info that needs to go onto the family tree. 

If you have a family tree of any size, try to add one little story to pass down to future generations!
