Sky views throughout this evening. I have been under the weather with a really bad cold/cough since Thursday, so I wasn't prepared to watch the eclipse. I watched it on TV. But I managed to enjoy the sky in all its glory this evening.
This morning, the Dr. told me this cold/cough is going around and many have it. It's a 7-10 day process. I'm on day 5 so I hope I'm in the 7 day category. I can't remember coughing SO much and all these sleepless nights are the pits!
We need rain so I was happy to see the black clouds moving in, and hearing the thunder brought some hope. So, it finally rained for 5 MINUTES and it brought this beautiful rainbow with it. But the ground is still dry!!
I must be a glutton for punishment. I just spent a good part of the day in Buy the Season setting up jewelry in my newly rented glass shelves unit. I have collected a lot of vintage pieces over the years and some sterling pieces, too. I have loved them, but now it is time to let others enjoy. Wish me good sales!!
We went to meet this little guy this evening. He's an adorable tiny 7 week old Shorkie (Mom is Shih Tzu - Dad is Yorkie). He's ours to buy if we want him. We took Jake to see how he would react. He seemed ok and did a lot of smelling of the little guy's face. But, after talking it out, we decided it's probably not a good idea right now. SO hard to resist the little sweetie.
There were 6 deer in the back yard for a long time eating the grass yesterday. There was a buck, 3 does, and 2 fawns. This little fawn decided to go over and meet Emily. Emily is entirely made of wood and she is carrying a flower box. She stands under a tree exactly where I placed her in 2006 when we moved to this house in Virginia. I purchased Emily in Akron, Ohio, at an Estate Sale before we moved here. I had no idea what I would do with her. I just thought she was neat because someone had lovingly cut out all the wood pieces to make her and to attach the flower box. Little did I know she would come to Virginia to live in our back yard. She has finally found a friend.
