This morning McKay and I were reading one of our recent library selections, Raindrop, Plop. One page talks about going inside for some hot chocolate after playing in the rain.
I thought to myself that some yummy hot chocolate sounded delicious, not to mention the rain. Then I checked the weather and realized there was a fat chance we'd get rain today with the mid-80 degree weather and no clouds in sight.
When lo and behold, this afternoon we had a splendid thunderstorm, complete with rain to cool things off (although the humid heat afterward was not so great . . . ). We played in the rain and came in afterward to enjoy some hot chocolate together as we watched the rain falling outside. It was lovely.
I guess I made a lucky wish this morning.
