Finally after over 30 days without rain, it rained. It was a true blue storm with thunder and lightening. I was able to catch this lightening strike. It's really bright isn't it!

Day 117- I've been published!!

As most of you who follow me know, I am a crafter. I try not to post craft projects here since I have a blog just for that but this news was just too exciting! I've been published in the September issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine. This is the card that is in there!!! I'm so excited!

Day 116- Awww, isn't he cute!

I walked into the bedroom to see Jiggs poking his little head out of the covers. Isn't he cute!

Day 115- My new best friend

This is my new best friend lately. It's been so dry here, as you can tell from my grass. I've been having to water every single day to keep my veggies and flowers alive. It's too hot and it's been over a month since it rained. Of course it rained yesterday all around me but never one drop at my house.

Day 113- Cicada

These are the loudest little insects ever! It's very rare to actually see one up close like this. The little brown shell, called a nymph, is what the insect lives in until it is adult and ready to fly. It usually climbs into a tree and then hatches. This one I found on a wooden railing so I was really happy to see it!!

This is a pear tree in my Grandparents backyard. It was just full of them. They aren't ripe yet so there was no picking of them!

Day 109- Ducks

I went to the park today and got a shot of these cute ducks! I have no clue what type they are. I was only at the park for about 10 mins because it was way too hot.

Day 107- Corn

I just love fresh corn on the cob. I got this corn to put on the pit. Just peel back the husk, clean the fibers, rub well with butter, sprinkle with a little garlic powder then pull the husk back up and throw on the pit. No soaking needed and boy is it good!!

Day 106- Saying Goodbye

Today was the switch to Digital TV and I had to say goodbye to my old friend. This tv is so old that it doesn't have hookups for anything. I have it in my kitchen to watch the news while I"m cooking. I hate to part with it because it still works if it weren't for the dtv transition. Oh well, I guess it's time to move on to better things!

Day 104- Sewing

Well I've decided to finally tackle my lace curtains. I was given eight panels a little over a year ago. I got them hung but they were all way too long and some needed to be re-sewn at the top. I left them hanging the way they were because I didn't want to mess with them. I am a novice sewer so I was a little scared about messing them up. I decided that they just needed to be done and it doesn't matter what they look like when I'm done!!! So far so good!

day 101- Baby Feet

I took my niece on a photo shoot in my front yard. She is three months old and this was the first time her little feet had ever touched grass!!! She was so cute too. She had her little toes squirming all over the place! The dark spot you see on her left foot is a birthmark.

Day 100- Nosy

Well I finally made it to day 100!!!! I figured since I started out with a picture of Jiggs on day 1 I should have another one of him on day 100. Doesn't he have a cute nose!!!

Day 96- Jiggs.....again

I know it's a little blurry but I couldn't resist posting it. I cracked up when I saw it on the computer screen. He was outside playing and I just stuck the camera under him and snapped. This is what I got!
