We finally got some RAIN! :-)

Call us crazy, but my daughter-in-law, Steph, nephew, Jake and I did a rain dance in the yard yesterday afternoon (of course we made sure noone was driving by - lol)  and it worked!  We got one storm a little after dinner time and another one at 5:30 this morning....both dropped lots of rain and put on a nice show of lightning and rumbles of thunder.   What a relief from the hot and dry weather we have been having.  Hoping for more storms today, but it's going to be a scorcer!

We had a nice weekend as well....nothing too terrible noteworthy.  Went to some sales with Drew Friday.  Calling hours for a friend's mother on Saturday am, then attended the festival in a nearby town with Drew & Maria...we mostly went to view the craft vendors.  Picked up a few bars of yummy smelling soaps and was tempted by one lady's prim booth, but didn't buy anything.  Came home and worked in the gardens afterwards.  Scott & Steph came over after a  picnic with her family.  Sunday we visited my Aunt in the nursing home and then headed on over to my parents and nabbed Jake for another visit.  We then returned home to all play Bocce ball, eat hot sausage and corn on the cob and enjoy the storms.  I was up at 4:30 this morning listening to the rumbling....checked the radar and figured I had better close windows.  By that time, Scott was up and we sat on the porch watching the storm come....nice time so early in the morning....spending time with my son.  They left this morning, with a plan to stop on the way home to pick blueberries.

I'm off to work on a couple of orders and some awesome new items for Fall!

Have a happy day all!  God Bless
