Drip. Dripetty-drip-drip


Hi guys! So okay, maybe I oversold the beauty of November? The past two days have been---well, drippy.

No blue skies, no exciting storms. Warm. Muggy. Drizzle.

Mo likes drizzle so we walked a lot.

 Photos taken with Mo's help! They capture the blustery days quite well, don't they.


We peeked through fences,


looked in yards....


I love this color palette




colors intensify when wet.

like a bonsai tree!


another stunning color grouping

It was a good day to sew. Despite a weeklong migraine, I finished prepping these Flags blocks. My heroic friend here Mel is gonna sew them! Awesome.

Tulips to keep me company. Love the fringy purple!

Mo snuggled at my side.

I made chocolate chip/ sour cream/ banana bread and Zatarain's Dirty Rice. The house smelled delish! (All from ''kits'' plus some extras, easy-peasy!)

Sunset comes so early now! But a promise pf a nicer day tomorrow? Have a wonderful weekend!



gone to the beach



  1. Stunning colors! I happen to love rainy, muggy weather. Probably because it's so rare here.

    What are the pink berries/buds? They're so pretty. The last hydrangea photo is beautiful. I could go on, but I'll stop :)

    So nice of Mel to do your flag blocks for you.

    I made chocolate chip hazelnut biscotti last week. A pretty easy recipe compared to another one I used to make. Your banana chocolate chip bread sounds good...from a mix you say?

    Happy weekend, thanks to you and Mo for the lovely photos.


  2. That doesn't look like any blocks I am working on yet, although I realize you are ahead when you got that hard one out of the way.
    Such pretty photos from your outings

  3. So Mo likes long walks in the rain, LOL?! The photos look pretty appealing, and like Kel I especially love the colors in that last hydrangea photo. I can't believe you took pictures of FISH, though!! I thought you didn't like fish?

    I know the vine on the fence is Virginia Creeper, but I don't recognize the pink berries. I'd like to know what they are, too! I love that color combo.

    Thanks for sharing, and I'll get started on your blocks as soon as I get them. I'm already ahead on my crochet-along....

  4. The varigated bush w/ berries is euonymoous. I was surprised to see that the bright red "burning bush'' is a euonymous too. I ve nevr seen so many berries tho. Big crop.

    1. Hmmm, thank you, I'll look it up.


    2. Mel says some varieties smell very bad and draw hordes of flies! But not the ones here....
