The autumn rains cometh!

Yesterday a dark, gray sky drifted above us and with it came the rains.
Serious, autumn rains.
Sideways water coming down.
And with that, our summer was finally blown away.
Only a bittersweet memory now.
Fat, droplets cover things now and the fire has been lit to keep the damp out.
Glen Gould plays Bach on the CBC keeping in rhythm with the rain on the roof.
The other day, whilst hunting in the thrift shops,
I found the sweetest buttons...
Yeah, so? Little white buttons...what's so special about those?
The size, my friend!
Aren't they the sweetest little buttons you've ever seen?
Now I'm motivated to make a tiny piece of clothing for a 
tiny little creation...more on that later.
For now, I'm staying warm and dry.
That fierce autumn wind has blown away the dust in the corners.
The creative leaves swirling about gathering momentum for the shape of things to come.

Just like that, from sunflowers, the fruits of summer, to rain and tiny buttons for future suits. And little Piglet in his one-sie (spelling uncertain) floated right out of his home. Glad you have engaging indoor activities. xo

You did say, last post, that you were looking forward to some rain!!

We seem to be having an extra week of Summer here to ripen things off, but we could do with rain too (at night, of course, please!)
