Rain and more Rain

It started last night, pouring down with thunder almost on top of us. Needless to say the spouting filled so quickly it overflowed. It rained all night and most of the morning. The sun has now come out and outside it feels like a sauna.
Today is our wedding anniversary, 47years, my DH and I went out for breakfast this morning. There is a cafe up the town and they do beautiful breakfasts.
This afternoon with all this humid weather I did some sewing and stitched the borders on my Trailing Vine. I decided that single bed size was big enough, some things just need to be finished.
