Rainy Days...

This weekend was perfectly gray and rainy. A long overdue gloomy weekend smack dab in the middle of a VERY hot July.

I welcomed every drop and second. My patio and front porch were filled with screen porch and houseplants that thrive much better on rain water than tap. They too are MUCH happier.

Yesterday a 500 piece puzzle was attempted. I enjoyed watching my family work together to get it done. One day, if we ever build the extensions we often dream about, we will have a puzzle table to leave it on and go back to... In our sunroom... at a beautiful mosaic bistro table. =) A sunroom filled with all sorts of beautiful plants that grow all year round.

I also got ALOT of knitting done. ( As per my Twitters) Im not making anything specific... YET. Just practicing my stitching. Thank God for kind women on you tube who have been teaching me to bind-off. I haven't attempted that stitch yet but when I do Im hoping for success!!!!

My crochet needle was picked up as well. My list for Hobby Lobby is growing and I can't wait till Friday to go pick up my supplies. My first project is a nice green scarf. Loud and bright to beat any winter blues!!!

Nothing is more relaxing than laying in my soft comfy bed at night and knitting away... (with Seinfeld reruns on DVR of course.)

Tonight begins SHARK WEEK on Discovery Channel. We can't wait. Air Jaws 2010 will be taped and watched with the kids tomorrow. Hubby and I will watch it tonight... while I knit of course.

But thats it my friends. A nice quiet dark weekend spent in my Little Red House, surrounded by all the things I love. Next weekend won't be as peaceful. Lots to do... so I enjoyed it while I could.

How did you spend your weekend?


  1. Yesterday I got up earlier than normal to take my adult daughter to meet friends for a trip to the coast. Her car is in the shop til Monday. So then I went shopping for some groceries and picked up my photos from the rodeo we went to on July 4th. Wedding in the evening and church this a.m. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nice but cooler weekend weatherwise, which is nice.
    I'm knitting a sweater for my granddaughter. She's 2 years old. It's all one piece and knitted with 5 colors which is easier than I thought.

  2. my family ocassionally does one of those big puzzles together and it's so much fun when it all comes together. I love doing them in the summer.

I love your weekend and I used to do puzzles as a kid..loved them..we would get them for all of christmas vacation we would do them...glad you got some rain too..;)we did a bbq and church...nothing big..:) have a wonderful week ahead and I can't wait to see your knitting projects and the stuff you buy at hobby lobby;)
