yesterday afternoon, the rains came.....aaron and i were out at the time and, on getting home, just running the short distance from the car to the covered front awning, had us both drenched through. it continued through the night and into the morning. it was HEAVEN!!! the lawn has been like straw so, hopefully, it will now green up a bit. we have been in drought conditions for years and under strict water restrictions...we aren't allowed to water lawns, just gardens. hoses are forbidden...it's strictly watering by bucket only, once a week for an hour....so every drop of rain we get is precious. the drenching rain left us with a very muggy, humid and hot day....something i'm not fond of at all.

on another note, here are some pics of the journals i decorated last week. these were orders. i purchased spiral bound notebooks, covered them with decorative papers, added wool fibres to the spiral spine and attached some decorations. i also made matching bookmarks.
