Mother Nature

September 8th, 2011

Rain-  That’s something we’ve been seeing a lot of and also something that has put a damper on our sight-seeing this week.    We have spent a lot of time going to malls, supermarkets and other stores- but at a certain point- one has been to Ikea enough times and is ready to do something much more fun.

We have been keeping busy in that aspect of things, but we are all itching to get out and about.   The winds have been around 30 mph- and that coupled with the cooler temps and rain- I think we’re all a little hesitant to just toss on a rain coat, rubber boots and just get outside in it, because we do have bigger travels coming up and none of us need to be sick.

I think tomorrow we are just going to wing it and pray for the best.

Next week-  Germany and Austria.  I’m SO looking forward to it.  I’ll probably be unplugged most of the time- aside from maybe having the occasional wi-fi connection on my phone.   If I can’t update from there- I’m sure I’ll have lots of stories to tell once we return.

Right now- I need to look for a hotel for our trip back.  I made our weekend reservations weeks ago- but we decided to stop along the way and take in some of the sights- and are going to do the same on the way back (only via a different route) .   I made one hotel reservation yesterday- now I just need to make the other.   Fun times ahead- and I’m exited.  I just pray the weather cooperates.

Mother Nature seems a little angry these days-  and for some reason I can’t help but think of an old commercial (not even sure what it was for) that said, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.”

    The quote was “It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature” It was a Tropicana 100% pure orange juice commercial…I want the braincells holding that information back…
