Good morning and happy soggy Sunday from the rancho!
I have my Baby Boy home. BIG SMILE. I drove up Friday morning, missing the rain completely. Spent the night in the Bay area, then drove home yesterday. We were very lucky. We hit rain for only 75 miles of the 200 mile trip. It was more of a light rain with a low fog...we did okay.
WE HAVE REACHED A GOAL! Our area has finally hit 100% of the annual average rainfall! I know that there are so many areas that are getting too much water, but we so desperately need the rain. We received about 5 inches in the last week. That is twice the amount that we usually get in January, with a full annual average of about 13 inches. With that said, no significant flooding. Our dirt road is a bit uneven (it's like playing a pinball game, driving back and forth to miss the potholes, LOL) but I can live with that. This is being touted as the biggest storm in the last 20 years. Since we've been in a drought the past 10, well, I'm not really that impressed. LOL I'll let you know at the end of the week. I lived through a 30 inch winter, I can do it again.
Our morning sunrise...
Did a little shopping at my favorite yarn shop in the Bay, Avenue Yarns. I need to make a baby blanket for a co-worker and just couldn't find the right yarn. Ran into some beautiful multi-color that they showcased with a baby blanket. Perfect!! I love the colors and think it will be just right for the new baby. I'm halfway through the first skein and am very happy with the color changes.
I worked a bit on "the" scarf, but just more black. No need for a picture. LOL I have to have it done by Friday, so I am planning on knitting for at least one hour a day this week. No problem! LOL
I am off like a herd of turtles...I've got stuff to do! Have a wonderful day, be kind to one another.
