Quinoa Crunch Bowl

Since late 2009, I’ve had a pretty crippling fear of weather.

Specifically, any weather events that didn’t involve a cloud-less sky & a bright sun with a happy face in the middle.

Overcast day? No need to speak to me.Thunderstorms? Don’t expect me to leave the house. High winds? Buckling myself to a sturdy object. Natural disasters? I carry a helmet and a bottle of water wherever I go.

As usual, I continue to evolve. I woke up yesterday to a thunderstorm and instead of burying my face in my pillow and asking God to blow up my car so I couldn’t go anywhere, I was comforted by the melodic sounds. It was like waking up to a big ole bear hug from Mother Nature. Rain is pretty! Rain is fun! Rain is an excuse to not do my hair!

However, I think the sun is starting to turn on me & I’m not happy about it.
