It has been pouring buckets of rain for two days. The power was out for hours. I should have gone grocery shopping on Monday (for things like milk and bread) and I still haven’t gone, which I am blaming on the rain. Last night when the power went out I was cleaning things up in my crafty room. And after I got off the stool in the closet in the pitch blackness, I found some flashlights, and went back to organizing and cleaning up my room.
We’ve had some amazing lightening, the largest drops I’ve seen in a decade and even some dime sized hail. I love to make stuff during rainstorms. Or clean things (hence me standing on a stool in the closet when the power went out…) Yesterday I decided to make something rainy.
[ An art journal page from the online class I took this spring from RVA, see all my pages here. ]
It wasn’t this. I made this page back in April. But do you see that little pile of paper raindrops up in the right corner? I used those up today. The paper raindrops combined with a little dark gray thread and some chrome spray paint make me happy. Only I can’t take a picture of it right now. So you’ll just have to believe when I say it’s awesome. I hope to get a picture sometime this afternoon, but it might not be until tomorrow.
What else am I doing in the rain? Baking pie. Delicious Pie. Again, which I can’t take a picture of. Happy Friday, I hope the rest of the weekend is filled with lightening and thunder and beautiful beautiful rainstorms.
