It's raining here again today. I was up at 5:30 letting one of the dogs out and we were having the strangest rain I've ever seen. The raindrops were so fine it looked like fog but it was obviously raining. At least it was obvious when I stepped out into the "fog" and got my shirt wet. It reminded me of the scene in Forrest Gump when he was telling Jenny about the rain in Vietnam.
One day it started raining, and it didn't quit for four months. We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin' rain... and big ol' fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath. Shoot, it even rained at night...
That's what it's been like here lately. It even seems like it's been going on for months! I'm going to take advantage of the overcast sky today, though, and get down in my room to get some photos of it.
We went to KC for a few hours Saturday and I had great hopes for lots of garage sale finds. Instead, we found lots of rain. It was big ol' fat rain. Not good for a day of bargain hunting.
This is the only thing I came home with. $2.50 for the whole box. I don't even need any more of them but they were such a good deal I couldn't pass them up! They make pretty storage containers so I'll find some way to use them.
And yesterday I made strawberry jam. My first batch of the season.
I finally made myself stop saving my pretty vintage inspired apron I made almost a year ago.
We've been using all the strawberries we pick every day for strawberry shortcake but not being home to eat any on Saturday left me with enough for 4 jars of jam.
I'll be posting step-by-step photos of my jam making sometime this week. I want to encourage everyone (EVERYONE) to try it. If you can boil water and stir a pan of strawberries and sugar, you can do this! But first things first. Photos of my scrapbook room tomorrow!
