After weeks of dry, we finally got some rain today and it felt cleansing. I headed out for a run around 7am and saw the storm clouds swirling over the mountains, but I was able to finish the 9.2 mile loop with only a few drops falling on me. Then I was able to enjoy the beautiful, cool, autumn rain from inside the house. :)
I spent all afternoon baking, which felt like a perfect rainy-day activity. I roasted 8 or 9 butternut squash, then made puree. Some I froze, the rest I used for (clean) muffins, cookies, pancakes and even for my bedtime protein smoothie. Our house smells like cinnamon and allspice.
