Rainy Monday

We were promised rain and it was actually delivered this morning. A nice gentle rain is falling and the wind is blowing and I'm almost glad that I don't have any orders to go out today so I can just enjoy the rain from behind the windows.

We don't have any leftover Easter candy to eat this week since we don't have any kids that we had to buy baskets for and didn't get Easter baskets for the cats since we aren't quite that far gone in our cat craziness. Nor did we dress them up in bunny ears. Although I did buy a Cadbury caramel egg a few weeks ago, but it just didn't taste as good as I remembered. I was really tempted to buy some of the malted milk ball eggs (my absolute favorite) but I managed to resist them for this year at least.

Yesterday was a very quiet day for us, Keith napped for a while then mowed the lawn and I redid a bunch of pictures for the shop and spent the afternoon uploading new pictures. Every few months I get tired of the look of my shop and want to do an overhaul.

I had Keith cut up some nice pine boards for collage blocks and made two on Saturday and will probably make some more today. I'm also waiting on an order of wood circles for more pendants.

Soon to be in the homebeforedark shop.

You refrained from buying the Easter egg malted milk balls? That is the entire reason I like Easter. Are you sure you are my sister?

yup, I hear ya on the overhaul. I'm about ready to change my blog again, and I've been itching for a new shop banner for a while, just haven't gotten around to it.

we didn't have any easter candy either, but we did go to breakfast, so that was nice.
