MORE rain????

Oh, I can barely stand it! It's been raining forever! or at least since a week ago Sunday night, that would be the last 9 days, no sunshine. I need sun! I need dry air! Okay, our drought is over, enough already!

You can just see through the trees the wee brook that runs through the side of our has whitecaps on it! This thing is usually a trickle, but this past week it has been roaring....that is not to compare it to the Merrimack which is just flooding terribly. This is a whine, not a panic call, after all. The folks on the North Shore are really deluged. We've had 5 or 6 inches of rain in central Massachusetts, but the north shore area and southern New Hampshire and Maine have been inundated with over 10 inches of rain since the weekend.

So, no more rain, gracious Goddess. We're full up!

Why Quilters Never Sew Clothing With Quilting Fabrics!

If you are the chief cook, bottle washer, and Ironer in your family, think twice before you make an outfit from quilting fabric. Oh, sure, it looks cute. Yes, the colors coordinate well...after all, they're meant to. But quilting fabric is 100 per cent cotton. And cotton, well, let's just say it doesn't come out the way it went it.
The person who receives the outfit will most likely love it. So if you wash it on Friday, Iron it on Monday, you can be sure that by Tuesday or Wednesday, it will be worn again...only to repeat this vicious cycle in a homestye version of "Groundhog Day". Don't understand the reference? Google Bill Murray, and you'll see!

Saturday night....

...and nothing much is going on here. But I have a few minutes so I thought I'd catch up. Oh. Wait. There is nothing to catch up's been raining here in New England for about forever. We even got 3 addition inches today to add to whatever has fallen since last Sunday. Whoopdie doo. That would be a full week of rain, with more rain forecast for tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday. What a drag. The weeds in the backyard are looking like they are heading for the house with evil intent. The brook is flowing at capacity, any higher and I could lose a blueberry bush. The blueberry bushes are blooming, that's the photo you see at the top of the page, but with all the rain the bee's are not out to fertilize. Wonder how that will affect the apple crop this fall, too.

Okay. That's enough whining for one night! Moonsinger out!

It's about time....

I've been offline thanks to this goofy 2 year old who likes messing with Mum-mum's computer and then....I forgot my gosh, I'm supposed to remember that??!! Ha! Just what my 47 year old brain needs...remember a password. Sigh. Well, I'm back. And I'll be blogging again. Tomorrow. Or soon.
