Anyway, thanks Sara for being such a wonderful and gracious "hostess with the mostest"!
I've mentioned that the water situation is in our area is critical. Rationing is being implemented. A photo from a newspaper that I shared on Thursday showed a guy weed whacking weeds where there used to be a lake. Here are some photos we've taken not far from our house; the first is from February.
Quite a contrast, isn't it? Now we'll swivel a little and look straight out across what used to be the lake.
Had a bit of a wind storm Friday night; got really excited thinking we were finally getting rain. And we did! All eleven drops of it. I was asleep but those who were up said it was the kind of rain that's so brief you just see splotches of wet amid mostly dry ground.
Ivan cleaned out our winter garden this week in preparation for planting the summer garden. It was a huge kick to eat a salad with the last of the winter lettuce and our first five cherry tomatoes from the plant that resurrected itself from last year.
My Christmas quilt project is coming along nicely. And I'm finished with the smaller piece that I'll be mailing out this week. It's my FIRST quilt swap and I'm pretty excited! I've worked really hard on this piece, undoing a number of things and re-doing them because I wasn't happy with the first attempt. But I'm VERY pleased with how it turned out in the end!
