What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Day number two of storms on this, Thunder Mountain. 

Maybe all houses on hills boom and shake with storms (?), or maybe it is just the o.l.d. ones, but as much as I love storms, these can be at times pretty intense.  (I do have some residual apprehension from the tornado that hit down right next to our old place two years ago.) 

But on the other hand, I slept the best I have for quite some time last night-when the coolness of the stormy air came through the upstairs and took with it the stuffy heat of last week.  Ah.  I do love cool breezes.

And I get another day off of watering the flowers and vegetable gardens.

So, I'll take it.

It does, however, give me a sudden urge to sit and read.  Or crochet a bit.  Or do something frivolous of that sort.  In fact, I think I will.

Yep.  Thunderstorms are pretty nice in my book.  Even on Thunder Mountain.

Now I have Stormy Weather playing in my head.

We're supposed to get rain tonight and tomorrow.

You might like the book "Thunder Cake" by Patricia Polacco. We used to make one as kids when the thunder would start.
My mom has a "thunder candle", which she only lights during thunder storms, just for fun.
