We've had rain!!!


All animals except for man know that

the principle business of life is to enjoy it.

-Samuel Butler

In my last posting I showed you some farm animals I had made now I can show you the last bit of my project.......
I am so excited about the barn house and I have been on the lookout for a container that will hold the sides up and make it firmer.
I didn’t manage to even get to the library before the kids pounced on me to see what it was. It is already a favourite with the kids which is just what I wanted. Over the week I have been busy......
Another TV blanket finished.....
In the garden and it’s amazing what some rain will do for the plants. Yesterday we had a substantial drop of rain .....

Pot plants all happy
And even this poor old hibiscus couldn’t believe it had rained. The flower thought it was all too hard to hold itself up. Today there are still storm clouds hanging around but it’s supposed to be 30C today and it has warmed up. We are very excited about the rain, as it's been a long and hot summer.
Good luck to Pixie and Cory who are travelling off to South Australia for go karts. Have a safe and fun trip. Good luck also to any West Aussie’s who are competing in the event as well. I imagine my sewing shed will be hammered to pieces during their time away.
Enjoy the weekend everyone out there, hope you gets lots of things done!! I’d love to hear how the weather is going in your parts of the world. I have been keeping a watch on the weather in Italy and it was 12C with 88% humidity a few days ago!!!?? I’ll stop complaining about our weather now. Lol. Almost forgot!!! Savannah & Hudson.....Uncle Pixie is dropping off some special things for you both tomorrow!!! They were made for you with love.
Cheers, to you all, Anita.

Love the barn! It looks great. What fun for the kids.
Hope some of that rain goes to my house.
Hope your family has fun at the go karts.
Weather report - Morning in Florida was warm and sunny, then a plane flight and returned to snow flurries in Pennsylvania. Bit different to home!

Great barn ... now the animals have somewhere to shelter from the rain :)
Glad to hear you've been getting a good drop.
Nice sunshine today with showers predicted all next week.

gorgeous little barn full of animals. That is a great idea. Any rain is so refreshing after all that hot weather.
