This afternoon I finished Little Miss Aimee's baby shower gift.
I know the pics are bad...that's what I get for taking them inside and then attempting to "enhance" them.
I am not the photographer at all.
I couldn't take them outside as it was raining...again...sigh!
I know much of the country is in a major drought, but we are about to float away.
2 inches of rain fell on Wed. afternoon, 1.5 inches on Thursday, 1.5 inches on Friday, less than 1/2 inch on Saturday...and more today.
All of last week's rain was on top of the 10 inches we received week-before-last.
Dear Lord, please send our everyday thunderstorms to areas of our country that are parched and badly in need of liquid sunshine. Amen.
On the table....amazingly in all this rain and heat, I found two pretty hydrangea blooms which I promptly cut and brought inside where I can enjoy them...along with my candles and seashells (from Marshall's $2.99 per bag.)
More scattered thoughts:
My babysitter helper extraordinaire is going back to school next week.
Which means, I'll have the busiest, fastest crawling, 11 month old puller-upper on everything, man- baby west of the Mississippi, all by myself five days per week! Whew!
He is constant smiles and energy in motion.
He is definitely busier at this age than his sister, Rosebud was.
He also plays entirely different...like full of testosterone different.
I've been thinking about pies.
Mostly pumpkin and apple as those are my favorites.
We were gifted with a lovely 21 lb. pumpkin friends grew in their garden.
Today, I found a yummy looking apple pie recipe.
I think pie of some sort is in order this week...with plenty of pumpkin in the freezer for more pies closer to Thanksgiving.
Also concerning pies...
a very good blog post and recipe on homemade pie crust.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
