Sunny Day On The Farm
It was so nice outside today and the winds have finally settled down some. Yesterday Oklahoma was ablaze with fires. Many folks lost there homes, barns, and outbuildings. The firefighters worked endlessly trying to gain control. We were very fortunate not to have any near our place.
This coming week they say temperatures are to reach near 90 and with winds coming again they are asking folks with tall grass to get it mowed down as a precaution. Everything is so dry it only takes a small spark and before you know it so much damage.
We are sure praying for rain! Well this afternoon after running a few errands I gathered up some of my thrift store finds and my paints and brushes and spent a few hours outside giving them a coat of paint.
They do look so much better painted. I just need to add a lil' wax to them and then they will be finished and ready to put in our booth.
I tried my hand at making a stuffed bunny and a few muslin eggs. The poor lil' bunny has a square nose guess I'll have to try to do a little better on the next ones!
Tomorrow after church I'm planning on more time spent on the porch painting a few signs and benches. It's suppose to be another sunny day just hope the wind isn't blowing too hard.
Hope each of you are enjoying your weekend and enjoying a little bit of sunshine!
