|The Youngest Daughter is our "critter kid" and loves them all.|
Sunday into Monday morning brought us over 3inches of rain! Not that we weren't a little dry but that was a bit of "over kill" in one day. Even worse is that by the time the week was over this little duck had over 4 and a half inches in it. That is including a few sunny days to evaporate some of it.
It was obviously not nice out and with the kids still in school (2 weeks left at this point) I spent a day sewing. Yes, these cute little strawberries took about half the day to assemble and really did not turn out that big either but they are cute so I made enough to make a table runner out of them.
With the sewing machine out and accessible I was able to complete one project. I had started it probably 2months ago for the Youngest Daughter and never got around to finishing it. So one night after dinner with her actually accessible to try it on I finished it off.
That's pretty much how all my sewing projects go and I'm sure at some point I will finish what ever project I turn the strawberries into but not last week as other things have taken priority.
Our other critters not enjoying the rain and cold were the pheasants. At a month old they are still very small and fragile to the cold temps (in the 30's) that we were having for June. We tried hard to revive this little one but it was not meant to be and it passed away. We were lucky and only lost 2 through the very nasty weather for June (so far). Hopefully we warm back up this week.

And just think this is a slow week so one can only imagine all the things I "could" have shared with everyone last month when the calendar was so full you could barely see the date on it.
