Wind or Sunshine, I don't mind!

Hi Beauties!

Our California weather has been a little on the wacky side. Two days ago it was 80*, we were in shorts and everyone was outside working in their yards and just enjoying the sunshine. 

The warmer temperatures seem to encourage all of us to lighten things up in our homes.

Lighter fabrics, cooler colors.

I love how the sunshine brightens up the room when I hang sheer curtains. In the evening I just pull down the shades!

But then yesterday mother nature surprised us with the sounds of howling winds and rain!

So instead of the shorts and flip-flops..
everyone seemed to flip-flop back to boots and jackets.

But do you think I'm complaining?

Absolutely not! The devastation caused by the tornadoes back East have put a whole different perspective on the term " crummy weather."

My heart breaks for all who were affected by the horrible disaster!

I pray that any of my new friends out there are all OK.

I don't understand why tragedy's  like this have to happen.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you will come back soon!
