Even though the sun is not sunny

See? The sun is definitely not sunny.mapThe zombie-turtle rain gauge certainly shows that it hasn’t been sunny for a couple days now.gaugeAnd even though I would much rather be out there, in the garden, otherwise known as the “Land of Unfinished Projects”, as you can see, it is more than a little damp.garden_softBut I got my copy of The Flavor Bible yesterday and I was instantly captivated by the ideas contained therein. So I can have a lot of good fun that is funny. Well, except for that having to work thing. And is that coffee mug not the cutest thing ever? It was part of my “Pay it Forward” prize from Kate. I love it.bookFortunately we have a 3 day weekend coming up, with good weather forecast, so we are hoping we’ll be able to get the mildew out from between our toes and turn some unfinished projects into finished ones. I think I will paint the eyes on that rain gauge too, because it is kind of freaking me out.

What are you doing this weekend?

    Yes, I agree with you….need to paint some eyes on that guy!! And that IS our radar! We have seen alot of rain, haven’t we?? But, we do need it. The farmers need it…the plants need it….I keep repeating that to myself. The “greens” in your pic do look really good!! Have an enjoyable holiday weekend….we are just hanging out.

    I love the picture with the mug I sent you! So artfully arranged. I bought it at my favorite country store, Willey’s Market in Smyrna, DE. I don’t think they have a website.
    I’d originally bought it for myself and when it sat in my cupboard, unused for months, I took it out and added it to my prize pile.
    I don’t really have a prize pile but it sounded mysterious and fun, didn’t it? Have an awesome weekend.

    The Flavor Bible is one of my very favorite books! It’s an invaluable resource for someone like me who participates in themed events like Iron Cupcake and really likes to play with unusual flavors and ingredients.
