Clouds and rain?

                                Just after I got up at 0630 we had a brief rain shower.  I love the sound of a gentle rain on our roof.  Makes me smile.  All morning the rain stayed away but the clouds remained.  And humid?  whew.  This is when Jim decided to head outdoors to work on the edging.  We still need more to finish the project, then mulch.

I did some cleaning in the bedroom.  Got out the vacuum and tried to get all the nooks and crannies.  Small bedroom makes for tight spaces!  Made potato salad, corn on the cob and leftover baked beans for lunch.  Not very exciting but it was tasty!  Spent the afternoon napping or reading.  I napped, Jim read.  Just a typical day around here.  

We had a huge black cloud move over us this afternoon.  Reminded me of Joe in the Lil Abner cartoon...Just sprinkled then moved on.

These are smaller than my regular cards, note cards to be exact.  Stampin' Up! products.  This card design is a SIP, all you need is Stamps, Ink and Paper.

The sun is out and the heavy cloud cover has passed

Lazy Sunday

         The sky is overcast, has been all day.  Smattering of rain just as we wanted to take the trash down.  I suppose we should look at the radar and see what the weather is going to be like.  Always nice to be prepared.

Neither one of us has done any outside work today.  The humidity makes it uncomfortable.  I've done the normal dishes and fixed us BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, baked beans and cucumbers for our dinner.

This little critter was behind the rig the other day and having a tough time getting over our coiled hose.  I picked him up and placed him in the shade.  I also dribbled some water on him as I don't know how long his was struggling in the full sun.



He finally poked his head out out and after ten minutes or so started traveling again, headed for the pond no doubt.
He did stop to rest, out in the full sun!  But didn't linger long

We didn't get any more rain today.  And yes, we took the trash down.  Stopped in the office where they wanted us to take a kitten home...we said no
