How it used to be....

Our chance for rain passed us by yesterday...I heard drops hit the awning and I do mean just a few drops. I did not see any hit the sidewalk. Last night our weatherman told that we had had 13 days of temps 100º and over....and that since May 9th we had not had any significant rain....just scattered showers.

With that in mind I went back through some of my photos just to see if memories of green in July were a reality.
I found these, among others taken in July of 2008....hard to imagine things this green again.
**************
It did not reach 100º yesterday...the highest I seen was 98º...so that is an improvement.

I cannot believe how slow I am in making Lorelei's dress. I didn't work on it day before yesterday but worked 3 or 4 or 5 hours on it yesterday evening/night. It was not dark when I started and it was close to 11:00 when I cam up from the basement. I am trying to be really careful. It is one that uses bias tape to finish the neck and armholes. I am not sure I like using it. I guess I will wait till after it is washed to see how it feels before I make final judgement.

On the other hand, I did drag out my serger to finish the edges. I really don't have far to go...I need to turn the bias tape to the inside and sew it down then hem and it is finished. It really is cute...at least in my opinion. I think though it will be next year before it really fits her. But she is growing so much that I could be wrong.

we finally got a couple of part days of rain, so things are looking a lot greener now, but we really should have a week or two of rain to make a difference around here.

We got a couple tenths of rain yesterday morning. Not enough to help, but the thunder sounded good. Hope we both get some this weekend!

No rain here either to speak of. Wells are running dry, crops have dried up and the risk of forest fire is frightening. What a crazy summer!
Looking forward to seeing the dress finished.

I just hate this drought! I miss the green and the flowers and everything. So awful this year! I hope this isn't a new trend. Hope you get the dress done...its really cute.

This is how green it is here right now. It's surprisingly green considering we are in a drought...but nothing like what you are experiencing.
