After the rain

In case you haven't heard, we have had a bit of rain this week in our neck of the woods.
 We were fortunate here and only had 5 inches.

 I took these photos yesterday morning

 before the last wave of rain came through.

It started raining just as I walked back in from taking these. This morning it looks the same except there is sunshine and I need to get out and pick up debris and sweep - there was a lot of wind with that last front and there are sticks, leaves and pine needles everywhere. Not complaining at all. Very thankful that we made it through with no flooding.
I've spent most of the week inside and I think I have ADD. I've kind of moved from one project to another. I finished the stitching part of the get away projects, started another cross stitch piece, pinned and started stitching on a quilt.
I will try for project pictures next week. I've got my mind made up to paint a chest of drawers this weekend. We will see if it actually happens. :)
We have a tentative date of May 2nd for the outside painting to start. 

Have a great weekend!

So green and lush. We had about the same amount of rain. The sun feels great!

The rain makes everything fresh and clean again. Your yard looks so green and groomed. Love that yellow little house. I hope you are enjoying the spring days. It's getting warmer here in California. :)
