I shared photos of the dark front that passed over us when we were at the park the other day, and here are some photos of the ominous weather that we had last night.
All of a sudden, it got really dark and windy.
Then we heard the tornado sirens going off.
A lot of local people were complaining that the sirens went off for no reason, but shortly after, photos from different people were shared online of clouds that looked like they were forming a funnel.
Our neighbor across the street shared this photo with our local Emergency Management-
that is our house on the right.
Thankfully, no one was hurt, but there was a lot of damage done to trees and properties.
We used the purple paint from Grace’s room (two walls are purple and two are green) and just some fabric I had on hand. For, basically, no money at all, we transformed the vanity to match Grace’s taste… and we had fun doing it together!
The kids and I tried out some straw-blown painting with liquid watercolor.
Summer Sun by Robert Louis Stevenson
Great is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven with repose;
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays.
Though closer still the blinds we pull
To keep the shady parlour cool,
Yet he will find a chink or two
To slip his golden fingers through.
The dusty attic spider-clad
He, through the keyhole, maketh glad;
And through the broken edge of tiles
Into the laddered hay-loft smiles.
Meantime his golden face around
He bares to all the garden ground,
And sheds a warm and glittering look
Among the ivy’s inmost nook.
Above the hills, along the blue,
Round the bright air with footing true,
To please the child, to paint the rose,
The gardener of the World, he goes.
You may have heard that we are moving.
Yes, this is true… as soon as we sell our home. It has only been on the market for about a week and a half, but we have had lots of showings and an Open House, which means that we’ve had to leave our home many times recently and find things to do.
