ahhhh.... partial sun today..

I woke up to partial sun today and that was lovely.. I did somethinngs around the house and then met my daughter AnneMarie in Longview Washington so I could pass her new vaccuum to her... I told her I would pick it up for her so she wouldnt have to pay taxes.  We had a quick dinner and then off to starbucks :)

I have my fabric all washed for the baby quilts I need to get made asap.

Rain Rain Go Away.....

The weather here has been so dismal for almost the entire summer... it was really getting to me.. so I left town for a couple of weeks... I went to The Tri-Cities, to see my family and soak up the sun. It was wonderful I am not one to sit out in the sun... but I was out there every day. In a little less than two days I was really feeling the change in how I felt. I stayed there for a little over a week, it was in the high 90's there.  I then went to Tacoma to help my daughter with her girls... and just to sit in the sun again... I went for walks with the girls and her dog.. I got out every chance I could.

After awhile my sweet husband asked me when I was going to return home.. I asked him if the sun was shinning he said NO... .I told him I was not coming home... lol.  But I did :) and it was ugly. I was able to deal with it tho... I had enough sun that I was ok... several days of gloom and then today we had a little bit of sunshine... then rain tonight.

Hubby is on a retreat with his work... they are bonding.. lol... they are doing white water rafting. I am glad he is tho... he said for the first time since our move to the coast that the weather was getting to him. I am praying we are going to have sun before fall sets in.

I dont think I am going to be able to post photos... blogger is being a stinker tonight.  UPDATE:  I finally was able to get this photo uploaded... so this is what we have been dealing with for most of the summer.

I hope you have a great weekend.
