soggy saturday....part 2


when last I left you
I was planning on sorting and tidying
and I did


I put the music on and I cranked the
yarn winder


and I found an empty box
which in itself is a miracle
and sorted and tidied my little heart out

big sigh
:)

but it kept raining and thundering
and the music kept me going
a mixture of oldies but goodies
Temptations....Bruce.... those hilarious '80's ....
the songs I mouthed  to at school  with two of my friends at some silly party they made us have
by the



:) :) :) :) :)


and Indian chants and sung prayers to the morning
and Peruvian pipes
I like variety!!!


and then I did this
I got the other stash out and started something I've wanted to try for a long time
and now they have the brainless easy-peasy way to do it

smocking


by number

I found it in that messy store I told you about
and instead of $7.95
 I paid
.99c
couldn't leave it there now could I
not for
.99c
I'll show you what I do when I do it
because just about then


the Tornado Warnings went up
Severe Thunderstorms and Flash Flooding too
you know the usual for a Saturday Afternoon
the wind picked up and it thundered a little
and then
the sun came out


and  that's when it came down
in buckets
while the sun was shining


the sky light
  in our room


rivers ran through



sheets of water hit the windows


and the sun kept coming in and out
stranger, weirder, more bizarre by the day

buckets......



when it died down a bit
I grabbed blue and out we went
down to what is the
ditch
used to be a little stream before they built the roads

this is a big drainpipe that carries the run off water to the lake
you can see the rubbish it carried
other people's rubbish
great!!!



looks like somebody needs to
put their stuff away
three balls
mine, when the water goes down

so that's how my day's been, so far
now it's all quiet calm again



but I found something
pretty
to end with
....
of course I did!!!

the storm is gone now
and so am I

Gees....start out the day meaningful with your peace in mind and a storm throttles your landscape. I would be so scared. Mother Nature can be so ferocious! I hope you have a peaceful sunny Sunday!

Storms are getting stronger & fiecer. I dread this year's hurricane season. I always leave home when any head my way & hope for the best when I return. I'm so happy to hear that you & Cathy are okay in your neck of the woods ;'}

Your smocking? How wonderful! :'] I loVe that sort of project, but never tried. I did smock some pillows before (mother taught).


Well...I'm back to my bunting. My hubby brought home another canopy. I need more bunting now.
