Today, was a RAINY day! We needed the rain and we got it today. I was working in Russellville, a town 40 miles east of where I live, when I heard that tornado sirens were going off in Paris and that the schools had evacuated the students to the safe areas. That surprised me and I quickly got on line and checked out the radar and began to pray.
I got back in Paris around 2 pm and then it got dark as night outside, because the rainclouds were so heavy and pouring down. Thankfully, we didn’t have a tornado or lose electricity, but I tell you it was a snappin’ and poppin’ outside.
It seems like rain always bring out the colors, in the trees. After the rain slowed and it was clearing in the west, there was a orange cast to the sky and the fall foliage just popped! I tried to take a picture, but my little digital just didn’t do it justice.
A few weeks back I was notified that I had been picked for a drawing. I received my prize today. 5 fat quarters in my favorite color, blue! Aren’t they pretty?!
Annie sent them to me. I think she did a great job picking out the fabrics. The card she sent with them was cute and sweet.
Thank you Annie!!
