The Rainy Season Was Upon Us

Just thought I'd put up a short post as a kind of update. That old saying "April showers bring May flowers" seemed like it wasn't going to come true this year, but we finally did get some rain on the last day of the month . . . and it continued through last night. This has caused the grass to grow at an alarming rate, so I'm headed out to mow the lawn this afternoon.

We spent a very busy weekend taking almost all of the Christmas decorations down and finally getting them packed up into the attic! All that's left is our bedroom and those few odds and ends that always seem to be forgotten in little nooks around the place. All will soon be packed away with the rest.

We went to some rummage sales this weekend as well, and actually got lilac bushes and peonies to line the front of our property and create a bit of a wall between us and the road! Okay, so we got those at a "plant/garage sale" and not at a rummage sale . . .
Dad's got all the holes marked off and will be working hard in the evenings to get things planted. I'll post pictures of his results.

I'm still felting for the diorama. Only four months until the fair and I'm not half-way there yet!! :o Another little man is almost finished though, all he needs are hands and a head, so I'll work on him after the lawn is mown! More later . . .
