I have to keep moving, or I'll mildew.
It's considered rude in a drought to complain about the rain.
But, honestly, every day for weeks might be a little too much making up for a lack of it in the last 6 years.
The garden is loving it. There is abundant growth, but the rain plays havoc with flowers.
And, because it's always wet, I don't have to feel guilty about not working in the yard. Hopefully, there will be a short break between the rain and the summer heat that I can get a little weeding done at least.
Another benefit is that I get to stay inside and that means sewing.
It must mean sewing because it sure doesn't mean housework.
I made the April star block last weekend. This is from fabrics I picked up on my trip to Indiana last month. Actually, these came from Louisville, KY, on the way to Indiana. Again, just fabrics that took my fancy that day. Not reflective of anything except my mood after a long flight. But, it's another nice block for a sorta sampler quilt.
And, no, I haven't quite worked out photo editing on the surface, but I'll get there. Speaking of the surface, we had trouble. I've had to have an exchange. The first thing I plugged into the USB port wouldn't come out. Like, it was stuck solid. So, Microsoft mailed me a new one and I've just finished wiping the one I'm sending back... with my USB plug in it. And, they've already let me know they won't be returning it. But, that's okay. What I'm losing is much less valuable than what I got back. And, yes, I have plugged everything into the replacement, not to use it, but to make sure it will unplug.
Everybody have a great Thursday. Rob unexpectedly has tomorrow off, so I might take it off, too. He suggested we might go to a movie. That would be nice. Just the two of us. Without bringing along out little bit of teenage attitude.
Parents need that. As the kids get older, parents need that more and more, so if you're not doing it, you should. Find a sitter. Lock 'em in their room. Whatever it takes, but get some parent time. It makes family time more palatable.
