My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

It's raining, it's pouring!

I am thrilled to report that it has been storming all night long! I am so thrilled to see the rain! After the years of drought and last fall's fires Texas needs a 100 year flood!! Since only the garage half of my house is in the 100 year flood plain.......bring it on! (but let me know first so I can empty my fabric out of the garage!...priorities ya know.)

Speaking of fabric.....
the great curtain-making campaign continues!

I am now working on regular (non-seasonal) curtains for the other windows in my living room. I'm so excited to be adding a little newness to the living room. It has been the same color and same curtains since we moved in 9 years ago. The furniture has, of course, changed over the years as the babies took over the other rooms, and the swing, bouncer, playpen etc took center stage in the living room for a season (or THREE)....and now it's out and the computer/work stuff has moved in....

But if you want just a little change that'll brighten your room, think about new curtains! Super easy to make and can change the whole feel of a room!

Make it a great, wet, day today folks!

by the way, blogger still isn't letting me comment on blogger blogs very much.....which I find EXTREMELY annoying since my blog and sign in name are on blogger!! So that's why you haven't heard from me lately.

Sounds like it's redundant to say enjoy the rain!

Y'all are most definitely in need of some rain out your way so I hope it sticks around for a bit and gives you a much-needed good soaking!

Good luck with those curtains!

I've heard that other people are having problems with Blogger and comments also. Seems like that sort of thing goes in cycles for some stupid reason.
