We were blessed with a very wet Friday through Saturday night rainstorm. Now those of you who get a good snowstorm might not appreciate the thrill we get from a "good" rainstorm, but we did enjoy it. I must say that I was very glad to NOT loose power as so many others in the area did. It was just fun to watch the rain coming down, watch the radar on the weather channel and curl up on the couch with a good cross stitch project. I could just see all my flowers looking upwards and soaking it all in. It has been a long spell since they have seen such a dumping from a natural source.
My husband happens to be a weather fanatic. He has a fabulous weather station set up in the garden which transmits the information into the house. When it rains really hard the station, as well as listing the minute by minute rainfall per hour, states that "It's raining cats and dogs." Needless to say, this has become a common remark around the household. Thankfully I have never seen cats or dogs actually coming down.
Today remains very dark with more rain expected throughout the day. It will be a perfect day for heading into my sewing room and working on my quilt for the newest grandchild. Being that it will be for a little boy, I am making a quilt that consists of trucks and construction equipment. I will photo transfer pictures of all of his cousins to put in the pickup beds and windows of the cranes and fork lifts. I am hoping that it will turn out as well as I picture it in my mind.
Before I head off to the sewing room I must decide on a good "comfort food" dinner. It's the perfect day for some long simmering, delicious smelling cooking throughout the house.
