Oh friends, I need the sun to keep me cheerful and going and right now I'm feeling pretty desperate.
The pouring rains started yesterday (Wednesday) morning. So here it is 3:00 pm (Thursday) and the rain is still coming down. At 8:00 this morning there were 4 inches in the rain gauge. Who knows how much now and it's simply too wet and messy to go check.
Maybe I should back up and talk about our warm and sunny day, Tuesday; with the back door propped open and the animals wandering in and out...Tuesday was a day filled with sunshine and colored leaves; camellia blossoms and shadows on the porch.
and looking a little closer, a Christmas cactus too.
This cactus came from cuttings taken from an old, very large, Christmas cactus that belonged to Poppy's mother. She had it for years and years and when she passed away, Poppy's sister Pat, brought it to her house.
Oh, let me tell you. I brough in all those "frocks" from off the clothesline and plugged in the iron. What a job! Made me wish I had left them hanging in the sewing room, dusty and dirty. That was a lot of ironing!
but the dresses are fresh and clean now and back in the sewing room. I finished another apron too...
Little farm animals. Here's another apron I finished last night...
