Last Thursday night we had one heck of a rainstorm in town RIGHT when I was driving home from work. I almost had to pull over and wait it out cause it was raining so hard I could hardly see. These pictures are from the arroyo by our house about 1/2 hour after the storm ended. I could not believe how much water was rushing by....about half the neighborhood came out to watch it too. This is normally a dry creek bed...it really was amazing to see this.
Sunday after church I sewed all afternoon and made two shirts for me and a skirt for Miss S. Here's one of the shirts I made - it's from Simplicity 3893 (the Kaliyah Ali collection) and I love it. Quick and easy and nice enough to meet with clients in. I wore it to work on Monday...I was glad I dressed up a little cause we had a potential client come in and all the attorneys were unavailable (the attorney she was supposed to meet with got delayed in court) so as the senior paralegal, I had to meet with her for her initial consultation. Nothing like putting me on the spot:) The other shirt I made is another Built by Wendi short sleeve top...I'll probably wear it tomorrow:) Our 19 year old courier just got a sewing machine for her birthday and she is so excited to learn to show. I told her she can come over anytime and sew with me.
Miss S played princess with Bree tonight after dinner...she is such a good sport:) Oh and she lost her second loose tooth Sunday after church. She wiggled and wiggled at it until it came out...which I don't think it was quite as ready as the first one as this one bled quite a bit.
And lastly, Miss S made us this very appropriate sign to hang in the front room. I guess this is her subtle reminder to me to pick up a little more:)
