It's been thundering and cloudy since lunch, and finally just started raining here. Cool breezes and lovely sounds come through the windows. It's been a wet summer here, and I'm loving it! I have to be inside most days, working away, and I'd rather it be cool and wet than hot and humid (especially since we don't have AC). Sometimes I wonder if there is anywhere that people don't complain about the current weather. Somehow it's always too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry! We always want the weather we're not having.
We have a lovely little thrift store in my town, and I visit it much too often. Once a week, usually. It's not big, and there isn't much selection, but somehow there is always something I find that's pretty, or useful, or just needs to come home with me. Lately I've been buying mostly clothes, because I've gotten to that stage in pregnancy where I'm growing out of all my favourite things. Today I found the sweetest top, with a ruffled collar and pineapples on it! I also snagged 2m of red and beige checked fabric. I'm not sure what it might become, but there's enough for a shirt, dress, or skirt.
The rain has already stopped, and the sun is out! Well, that wasn't even enough to get my pots of herbs wet! Ah well, I should get back to work. I'll leave you with a cute photo. This is Greta, our first cat. She tends to be on the grumpy side, but gives my husband lots of snuggles. She has rather short legs for a cat, and is a bit pudgy, so I like to make fun of her. She scowls at me, as if she understands :)
