Well it is finally................

Raining here in County NSW. I dont know how long for, we really need it, our crops are not doing so well. (Wheat, barley, rice, canola, etc) And if we dont get sufficient rain the crops fail and then the bread and groceries are dearer at the checkout, so next time it rains in the city and you start to complain rememeber this fact.
Here is a flower to brighten your day, mine is not going so well, despite the lovely rain.
I may post again later I will see how I feel. I cant decide if I want to do some sewing or some painting, as you can see on the side bar, I painted my first roses yesterday, I am pretty chuffed with my effort, so I would like to try and paint some every day or so to get better at them. I mostly paint landscapes, and flowers have not been a biggie for me, but here goes.

Hi Debra. I don't want you to be sad about not having any comments. So, here I am with my smiling face.

Your blog is beautiful - really. I know it will be a big success.

I'll send some folks over to visit you.

Just as a tip, you might want to adjust your Blogger profile to allow those commenting to choose the identity of name/url. Then you will be able to link back to their blogs.

Hugs, Jeanne

Hi Debra. Beverly shared your blog link with us.

Your blog is pretty! I read your profile and laughed. I like the allergic to housework comment. I feel that way sometimes.

I love crafts and am a collector of whatever I am crafting at the time. Lately, it's been knitting.

It's nice to meet you. I hope to get to know you some more over time.

take care,

It just took me 19:34 to do the daffodil puzzle. I really enjoyed it, but I've got to get faster. I'm very new to blogging also. It's so much fun! I'll be back to visit. Come see me, too.
