I’ve got sunshine …. on a cloudy day.

Not really.

I have puddles.

I have flowers trying to grow in “feels-like 30-something-degrees” weather.

I have work waiting.


I have beauty blooming.

I have plenty to do inside.  Sigh.  Better get back to it.

Here’s a little of what I’ve been doing.

    It seems as if the major rains have escaped my little town. We’ve had rain, but haven’t had the significant amounts it appears you have had. I am completely over the cooler temperatures though. I some of my tomatoes and peppers out last week when it was so, so warm.

    Here’s to warmer and drier weather ahead.

    That stuff has finally left us. Your flowers and plants are way further along than ours!!

    LOVE the fishing pole curtain rods! 🙂 I never did get to hanging mine. Need some fish netting.

    You have lots of pretty too 🙂 Your floor looks fabulous, did you stain/varnish it or just buff up with wax polish. Well done. Laura

    Looks like you’ve got some fish in those puddles. What’s with the wrinkled curtains? Your iron broke?

    Send some rain to Oklahoma! We are thirsty!

    Your flowers are so pretty, and the fishing rod is the perfect curtain rod for this room. You’re one resourceful cookie!
