Rainy Day

Well we finally had our FIRST rainy day of the year. May 6th! It is dry dry dry. It didn't rain for long but it did rain long enough to spoil our plans for planting Morning Glories and Sweet Peas.
The weather was warmer in the morning and dropped steadily during the day until it hovered around the freezing mark.

Change of plans.
I started a fire in the fireplace. (My first one. Paul usually does it.) It actually kept going. I got it going at 10 am and the last embers were still glowing around 4 pm. Yes, I am proud of myself for that one.

Next I started my ironing in the kitchen and Athena did some painting. Yes, those are her pajamas.

After lunch we moved into the living room and she began to play with her blocks followed by her train set.

I picked up my knitting , and using skein ends, started to make some soft knitted balls for Athena. I got the idea and the instructions from Lizz. Well, my balls were knit with nary an error. Beautiful colors. Wonderful textures. Balls they were not. More like watermelon shaped. Aghhhh! Where did I go wrong? Anyway, if you want to see what I was hoping to achieve, check out red dirt mother on the sidebar. She can make most anything.

All in all it was a great day, even though Daddy was away to Edmonton. Tomorrow promises to be sunny. We'll get those flowers planted yet.
