....Friday already!...what a week!

























.....hello and happy Friday Sunshines!......it has certainly been an interesting week here at the cottage.......

......dark clouds....flash floods.......thunder and lightning!....I absolutely love this type of weather......to be home and in and able to watch Mother Nature.................there is just nothing like it!...it cooled down to 70 deg with tons of humidity........I threw open the front and back doors......lucky me!.....and turned the a/c off! ...it was just lovely.......and so peaceful....listening to the rain

......which lasted almost all day!...........I miss the rain..........I'm a California girl and grew up in Los Angeles.......where the rain....the fog...were an everyday occurance.............so this week was a true treat for me.....

.......my computer, however, doesn't like this weather much...so it was turned off for a few days.......



....the sidewalk is disappearing!......:)...check out the wall of water!.....

























....then came the dirt! ............
............all in all it was just great and the poor ground did need the water!....the water was gone in a matter of a couple of hours too..........the front and back of the house flooded ...it was awesome!
.....I've been at it in the sewing room all week....seems I'm so slow....but I've got to get it done!....you know how things "fall into place"...you have to move one thing before you can move the other to the correct place! ....slow go for one person!!! :) .......I am loving how it is turning out though ........pics when done......:)

...in the meantime..........snapped a few in my almost completely decorated kitchen!....I have to stand and look to see and change.....so not really done just yet! :) ...........I sure hope you will have a wonderful weekend! I know I will......you will find me....yes.....in the sewing studio!......hugs kat =^.^=

  5. Kat,
    Rainy days can be magical. I think we are about to get rain here, so I am all settled in getting ready to crochet on the couch. I have a cold so laying around seems to be all I can do today!!! I'm so glad to meet you. Thanks for visiting my blog. I see you visited my BFF Donna too! I'm your newest follower.
    Hugs,
    Julie
