I have puddles.
I have flowers trying to grow in “feels-like 30-something-degrees” weather.
Itty bitty baby Alyssum sprouts.
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.
Curtain rods fashioned from broken fishing rods.
Here’s to making the best of cloudy days!

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.
What a strange year 2014 has been so far!
That stuff has finally left us. Your flowers and plants are way further along than ours!!
Your weather sounded AWFUL!! I’m glad to hear it has moved on.
LOVE the fishing pole curtain rods! 🙂 I never did get to hanging mine. Need some fish netting.
Levi is happy with them, too! I bought some fish net and told him to hang it where/if he wants too.
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
Sanded it down, stained, then he applied a finish. We are so happy I dug down under carpet and linoleum to find the wood!!
Looks like you’ve got some fish in those puddles. What’s with the wrinkled curtains? Your iron broke?
🙂 I am hoping the wrinkles hang out!
If that don’t beat all.
Send some rain to Oklahoma! We are thirsty!
I surely do wish I could share. I hope you will get rain soon!
Your flowers are so pretty, and the fishing rod is the perfect curtain rod for this room. You’re one resourceful cookie!
I’m so glad they worked as curtain rods! Thank you. 🙂
