Rain, Rain, Go Away
September 9, 2010 § 6 Comments
It’s been raining all week, actually it started the afternoon the deck was finished last weekend. Go figure! Not that that stopped me from enjoying it, I still sat out there. I just got a little wet is all. 😀
However, it has kept the mason from coming by to rebuild the chimney…mortar apparently doesn’t like rain. Sheesh.
Anyway, this week has been full of puttering, miscellaneous tidying and some baking. A cake for Son’s birthday yesterday (he turned 22 – boy do I feel old) and from scratch oatmeal muffins this morning and now I’m waiting for my dough to rise because next it’s buns to go with tonight’s dinner of homemade Whatever I Got Laying Around Soup.
Though I’m not thrilled that we went from stupid hot to wet and cool, it is perfect weather for baking and cooking and I’m finding myself continually drawn to the kitchen to create. I could paint, draw, write or sew but it seems like the kitchen is where I really want to be.
And believe me, no one around here is complaining one iota. Apparently, I’ve got me some skillz! 😀
