Rainy Sunday

This was the view today on the way to Temecula. The sky was alternately gray and stormy, with the sun peeking out every so often. This was a rare view of the sun piercing through the gray storm clouds, really spectacular in person. We don't often get pretty skies like this so when we do I take advantage!
It actually cleared quite a bit in Temecula and then started storming again on the way home. Currently it is steadily raining and night has fallen. Still, a pretty awesome Sunday in terms of weather. More like stay home, build a roaring fire in the fireplace, and make some pretty cards and drink tea-type of weather.
For now, Kiera has come over to spend the night. She has no school all week so she is gracing me with her presence since Daddy has to work tomorrow. Sawyer still has pre-school all week, luckily for all of us! Kiera and I have several crafts planned for tomorrow but for now she is just getting cozy on the couch with an episode of Peppa Pig!
Not sure if I've posted this picture before, forgive me if it is a duplicate. It is just a project I thought I'd try stolen from ideas I picked up while walking through the Dollar Tree. For just four bucks I have a really pretty and colorful holiday candle holder (with candle!) The candle is one of the flameless ones, came with its own battery and is supposed to last for 700 hours. It is very cool because it flickers and looks real. The green glass beads (flat on one side, they have the round ones and they don't work as well!) come in two different sizes, too, so be careful unless you WANT them to be mixed sizes in one project. Only downside is that the finished project is pretty heavy or maybe I should say TOP heavy and I will be careful where I display it. I don't think the holiday dinner table will work because at my house it will be jostled and I don't want a disaster with a domino effect happening on the rest of the table settings.

On that note, I will close for now and get back to Kiera. Remember that the Online Extravaganza begins November 21 at 00:01 if you want certain items up to 40% off.
