Wood is stacked up by the wood stove. Stove going. A nice warm, enveloping heat surrounding me. The sound of rain hitting the roof. Well, it is June after all and I suppose I should be grateful as we've been known to get a bit of snow in June. It's been raining for this past three days and everything outside is so lush and green. Obviously the earth is thankful for the wet weather. The rain has been hampering my attack on the weeds but I've been going out in between showers and am getting through it.
Himself tells me this morning that he's going to a "yard sale" in the basement of a church in a nearby community. Are you going, he asks me. Not a chance says I, and don't dare bring another thing into this house, lol. Now, I have to admit that when I go to these things I tend to come home loaded down with junk and then never know what to do with it so I rarely go any more.
So, the other day I made him a flag...yes, a flag. Every year he wants a new one, he designs it and buys the material and I put it together. My sewing machine is an old treadle. You know, the kind you use your feet to work and if the electricity goes you just light a candle and keep on sewing, lol. Anyway, it's a big clunker. So flag was finished and put on the flag pole. He decides he wants more stuff added to it, this after I have the machine closed up and put back in place...argh! Something I'll have to get at again in the next day or so.
The last sunny day I took some more pictures of the early blooming flowers.
