It's been raining. A lot today, as you can see by the row of buckets almost full of rainwater outside my window. I like to use rainwater for my plants when I have it. They seem to like it, which makes sense - no chlorine or other additives except what it picks up on the way down.
I keep hearing that old Sesame Street song going through my head, "It's a rainy day, it's a rainy day. It's raining outside so I can't go out and play. Why do we need the rain anyway?"
After the drought we suffered last year - I don't mind the rain. And I've been enjoying the sparrows frolicking around outside my window. If you click on the picture above, you should be able to see there are several perched underneath the old wheelbarrow I'm using as a planter out there. I know that a lot of people don't like sparrows. I do. Which is a good thing, because there are a lot of them!
There is, however, one less mouse in the world today. And Chloe is so proud. For such a dainty little cat, she is a coldblooded killer!
The fabric I ordered for the border of the little boy quilt came in the mail and it is now sewn on. All I'm waiting for now is a name and I'll start quilting it. I got some fabric scraps (I know. I don't really need any more, but they sure are pretty.) from my sister-in-law. They're washed and now I'll press them and try to get some tumblers (the big ones) cut from as many of the fabrics as I can.
Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs and kisses,
