Now, we are under a severe Thunderstorm warning and we had an earthquake today!! How crazy is that an earthquake in Northeast Ohio! I didn't feel it because we were driving home from the pool. I hope the storm passes so she can have swim lessons but for now all we can do is wait.
In my spare time today , we whipped up a batch of my grandma's raisin oatmeal cookies! These are Daddy's favorite and he feels a little neglected with working afternoons. So he will have a Surprise tonight when he gets home.
