Still no rain...

We still have had NO rain...it is so scary..there are signs posted on roads going into the forests about the fire danger....I have never seen this before in the UP....We went for a hike to Canyon Falls..(forgot the camera)..but we could walk up the river bed of the Sturgeon River and there was only a slow trickle of water going down the middle....it was kind of cool but kind of spooky at the same time...Jillian loved it..she could wade it the small pools of water that were trapped in the big rocks...there was still a water fall but in was a tenth of the size it usually is...

The Mud room is coming along and we decided it would be a laundry room and mud room..not a sewing room...so I will keep my old sewing room for now...which hasn't been used at all...soon though...this week I have to work so I will just have to think about it a little longer...

I went to some estate sales this weekend and found some interesting wood trim pieces and some glass door knobs that I am going to try and make something with...I thought I could make something for over the window in the mud room to hang a valance on...it could be nice or not..lol...I will post it when I try to do it...

Well I have to get ready for work...Have a great week...I hope you are safe from all the bad weather...

So strange to read it is so dry where you are. Here in the Netherlands we have had almost no dry days all summer. Rain keeps falling. Great for quilting, not for children on summerholiday.

We had the driest summer - up until this last weekend. Now we're very wet. Very strange. I hope you get some rain - but not too much all at once!

We are in the same boat - our grass looks like straw and crunches when you walk on it in some areas! Your mud room looks great!

I hope you get rain soon. The glass door knobs sound fun. Looking forward to pictures of what you decided to do with them in your new mud room.
