It has been raining on and off (more on than off) for the last 4 days. On Sunday we had a real deluge for most of the day. Huge amounts of rain fell. At one point in the afternoon, after a respite, it started up again while I was out running errands. The wind and rain and fog were so intense I could barely see more than a few feet in front of my car. At this point, I’m a little tired of it, but at the same time, I’m so grateful for this rain that we have needed all summer long. Brown grass is getting green, plants look happier and, thank goodness, our well is being replenished.
I took some photos of part of our living room on this moody, rainy early evening.
You can see how the living room and kitchen are basically one big space. Sometimes I like that and sometimes I don’t. However, the living room has windows but tends to be a little dark so the light from the kitchen windows is appreciated. If I didn’t know it was still summer, I would think this photo was taken in autumn. Still haven’t painted the kitchen table, but I will.
The yellow throw is on the loveseat because a certain Miss Scout considers it to be hers. She hops up there during the day and sleeps there at night. When I come downstairs in the morning, the throw is so rumpled that I might be led to believe she was tossing and turning all night long. Nope. She just jumps up, jumps down, and jumps up again throughout the night.
I suppose I should call this my Christie Repasy Corner. The small painting is by Christie and I bought the vintage lampshade from her last year at her shop. Doesn’t it look pretty with the light shining through?
In other news, my Mom has had a very hard time of it today. She fell early in the morning while trying to get back in bed, then she had two more episodes of weakness in the bathroom. After the 3rd episode, my sister called 911 and Mom was taken to the hospital. The latest news is that she is suffering from a severe urinary tract infection and is to be admitted to the hospital this evening (Wednesday.) We are all worried and Mom is very down. If you would keep her in your thoughts, I would be most appreciative.
