Does anyone recall the Sunday school song that goes something like this: "God told Noah to build Him an arky, arky. Oh, God told Noah to build Him an arky arky. The animals, the animals they came in by twosies, twosies.." Well, that is how it feels out here in Southern California. I was driving Brenna home from school and the rain was coming down so hard, all our neighborhood streets were overflowing past the drains, over the curbs and even spouting up through the manhole covers. Nice. Makes one wonder if one will get swept down the street in one's car. Brenna thought it was great fun. Especially when we couldn't see out of the windshield due to a particularly nasty spot of water in the road that went up and over the car. As she was happily singing at the top of her lungs, "the wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish.." (why do kids sing so loud when you are most stressed??) I was fervently praying for our sight to be returned and to get through the water!
Now for the fun part. Since I have not been inclined to venture out so much this rainy week, I have been fairly productive. However, I am not sure how I will get these bottles of cuteness to vintagesusie&wings shop up in Crestline. Susie reports the local mountains have been snowing, raining, sleeting, and just about every type of "ing". I so do not drive in the snow. I did for four years in Tulsa, OK. and I tell you what, it ain't for us southerners!!!
The watch part was from the goodies my mom gave me a while back. The tag, "Be Mine" was an added goodie from Miss Cindy over at Yapping Cat Studio. ( I bought the most beautiful vintage paper weight from her. She has the best stuff!)
I added the "til the end of time" part. Then I kept humming a song from Dan Fogelberg about time. Maybe it was Dan. Could have been another group. Who knows with my rain-addled brain?
Just looked up the lyrics to the song. It wasn't Dan, it was the group, Restless Heart. Restless Heart? Uh, o.k. Lord have mercy. I really need to see blue sky.
I got this cutie-patootie ballerina from Karen over at the graphics fairy. I think she is waiting for someone to sing a song to her. Maybe a song about being hers until the end of time. I know one I could suggest.
Then I came up with an idea to decorate these cute little mailboxes. (still in progress.) Who knows? If it keeps raining, I'll finish them and then I can clean up my ETSY shop and put them in there for Valentine's!!
Stay warm and dry wherever you are!!
