Saturday: Shopping, Sewing, Laundry, and Rain

It was a cooler, humid day, today.  I decided to do some sewing in the morning and sewed a table runner for daughter's apartment.  She had bought some fabric with a cherry design for the table runner, which will go on her coffee table. 

Later, after lunch, we went shopping at one of our favorite discount stores. Daughter was looking for a white long sleeved shirt, but we didn't find one.  She did find some long sleeved t-shirts, though, and bought those, as well as one or two other items.  I bought a set of bath rugs for my bathroom. 

Then home and I made us some faluda to drink: rose syrup, water, condensed milk, ice cubes - very refreshing on a hot afternoon.

In the evening, I did several loads of laundry.  I generally tend to do laundry once a week and have 3-5 loads each week. 

After the laundry was done, I put the sprinklers on to water the back garden. 

And then, I sewed a cushion cover for daughter, with a different cherry pattern fabric.  I'll sew the 2nd, matching cushion cover tomorrow and then, maybe I can persuade daughter to take a picture to post. 

I was still sewing the cushion cover when it rained!  Around 10:00 p.m. and it was so wonderful to have a shower of rain!  I love summer rain, and we need the rain so badly. 

My neighbors had another of their almost weekly parties, tonight, with loud, amplified music playing until after 1:00 a.m.  I think they turned the music off at 1:20 a.m.  At least it wasn't karaoke, tonight.  

It's past 2:00 a.m. I had better publish this post and get some sleep. 

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. 


  1. Would DD show you how to post pictures, rose garden?

    1. Actually, she has all but given up on showing me how to post pictures, because I can never remember! First of all, I don't have a digital camera or a smart phone. We have plans to buy me one of them before she goes. Once I acquire the proper equipment and acquire the skills, I will post lots of pictures, I'm sure.

  2. Well, if you love summer rain, you must come and visit. I was rather lucky this year, further west in the Black Forest a place had 23 inches of rain in July.

    Here is an impression of my idea of summer rain:

    I quite like watching it from a dry place. ;)


    1. That's quite a downpour! Definitely better to watch from a dry place! :D
