The thunder rolls, and the lightning strikes...

The past week or so here in Utah have been hot.


So I finally decided yesterday that I was safe to get my car washed today

Then at about 5:00 I woke up to a thunderstorm.

Not just any old thunderstorm.

This was AMAZING and I'm sure it was beautiful!!

It was a continuous thunder/lightning sequence for about 30 minutes.

I was really tempted to go upstairs and watch from the living room

But I instead opted to just lay in my bed and listen and watch my window light up.

I was in absolute heaven and peace for that 30 minutes. 

It even rained really hard for about 3 minutes.

It was so nice. :)

So when I went outside this morning I was debating whether or not to still wash my car.

I decided I would be safe. The sky was a little cloudy, but it didn't look like it would rain.

Boy was I wrong.

About an hour after I got home it started raining.

Luckily Mr. Man at the car wash told me that I had "weather insurance"

If it rained within the next two days I could go back and they'd wash it again for free.


So it looks like I'm going back tomorrow if it's cleared up.

I just love days like this though.

It feels like it cleanses everything.

The earth is clean again

Everything is clear and pretty and fresh...almost like it's brand new.

It's one of my favorite things in the world.

So I'm trying really hard not to begrudge the fact that my car now has water spots on it again...

And to end with a question....

Do you like my header? Do you think it fits?

Is it too much?

I guess that's more than one question...

But you're all so nice I'm sure you'll answer them all!! :D

Night everyone!!

Weather insurance?? Oooh la la! Your car getting washed again for FREEEEE makes me SO happy. Yay for happy happy free gifts from the universe!

Of course, I will answer. :) :)

Blog header made me smile. :) It is purple and glittery!!!

Can you reduce the blog width a bit? There is a scroll bar at the bottom of the screen too now despite me using the larger desktop. I want to see it ALL at once. :)

Did you ask about how to change the default font a few posts back? And did I forget to answer? Mean me! Click on "design" in your dashboard, then "template designer" and then "advanced".

p.s. Big hug.

Haven't those lightning storms been so awesome te last few nights?

Jessica said...

Thanks for washing your car! You should do it more often so we get this weather. ;)

And you and I rarely agree on what constitutes awesome weather, but this my friend, is indeed AWESOME weather!!

I LOVE your new header, BabySis. It works perfectly. I also think the picture is beautiful, and I like that you can see beauty in a thunderstorm - or in its after-effects.

Why is it that the mere thought of washing one's car brings about the rain?

Dearest Baby Sister,

I made a mistake.

Your blog looks PERFECT.

I am so terribly sorry.

I feel kind of foolish now.

Here's the story-

I normally hit "zoom in" SEVERAL times on each page I see on the internet because my eyes hurt really bad with excess computer use (to blog and study because my books are pdf files.)

I've been doing this for a few months now.

The amount I've zoomed remains the same for that particular page, each time I use the computer.

SO, you must have recently increased your blog width and it went beyond my ZOOMED computer screen area.

I must have been over-worked when I told you to change your blog width.

Today, I had a sudden flash of RARE common sense. :D

And I clicked the "reset" tab in the view section above.


Rest of Baby Platt's readers- try not to think I'm mad! :D

Can I now say- INCREASE your blog width to as much as you can/want.

Because there's LOADS of space on the page...

Are you very very angry with me? It's possible. SORRY.

A good old fashioned thunder and lightning and rainstorm is one of my favorite things. Everything smells so good afterward. I think your header is perfect. It definitely fits! =)

Baby Sister said...

I agree jayaycee. I love the smell afterwards!!
Thanks!! I'm glad you like the header. :)
