“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

It rained last night!
First storm of the monsoon season for us...it was gorgeous, claps of thunder, brilliant flashes of lightning, we even lost power for a few minutes!It was awesome.
Plus i'm feeling much better now, so I really enjoyed it. (thank you so much for your well wishes!)
Whenever there's rain, or it's overcast, I get into a happy/let's bake/tell stories/Halloweenish type mood.
So I'd like to share some pictures of a couple of stuffed characters I created.

This girly went to haunt a ghost hunting friend of mine..

And this young lady is going to a new home in N.M.in the next few days:)

I have a 'spooky' painting I started but that will have to be for a later post 'cause it's not quite finished.
Ok, I need to stop writing and get to work on the camper (since I've been neglecting it lately)
Hopefully it will rain again tonight!
Have a great Thursday, I'll see you soon.

  8. Rain does kind of cleanse the soul if you get to sit a minute and listen, watch and smell it. It is one of my favorite scents...the earth after a rain...worms...wet and fresh outdoors. Love puddle jumping - yep, even at my age! Glad to hear you are feeling better.
    cheers, dana
