I got up and slipped on my jacket and shoes and grabbed my umbrella, went outside to check on the garden. No rabbit!! I don't know why that should be surprising. With all this rain, you couldn't have gotten me out of my rabbit hole either!!
I've spent the day doing the things that needed to be done - things that would have probably been pushed aside for working outdoors in the sunshine. Since it was raining a lot of stuff that needed to be done in the house was at last accomplished.
Laundry is folded and put away, and I've repotted all the plants into larger pots. After they grow for another month it's into the garden!! Hey, because it rained I now have a clean house too!! Rain ain't all bad!
My husband is in "fishing mode". I came upstairs in the middle of all my repotting and looked out the window and there he was throwing a line in the lake again . . . but we have another batch of fish in the freezer!! You aren't hearing me complain.
Awhile back I was moaning and carrying on about wanting a new set of dishes, which is nothing new. I always want new dishes. I have this beautiful tea set with violets on it and I just love it. My husband bought the original tea set for me for an anniversary present a couple years ago and last week he said, "Order the rest of the dishes." He said he intended to get them for me anyway eventually. So, I ordered enough dishes to complete the tea set and now I have a complete set of dishes for dinner, serving bowls, the works. They came today and I'm ecstatic. You can see my set at Tea with Grace. Their dishes are very classy, dainty and reasonably priced and they will also sell replacements. That's really important for someone like me who is a major klutz!! Anyway, I can't wait to have some friends over to share dinner and use my brand new plates and my new covered vegetable dish. Oh, it's so elegant. I've looked everywhere for a lavender or purple tablecloth and/or napkins. I've found nothing so it looks like I'm going to use the dainty white tablecloth I have that has lace around the edges and I think I'm just going to buy a couple lavender pillow cases and make my own cloth napkins. Yes, when you use this set you MUST use cloth napkins. Just because you live in the country and get down and dirty doesn't mean you can't be refined.
