A VERY rainy Saturday afternoon

When I say rainy, I mean RAINY afternoon. You wouldn't believe the thunderstorms that have been rolling through the Houston area! Almost the entire afternoon has been pitch black and waterfalls dripping from our roof. The electricity flickered a few times. I had an entire day of shopping planned but ruled that out when I saw we were under sever weather alert. I started meddling in the back room and came across an unpainted bird house and some paints. I decided to do a little arts and crafts while my husband dozed off watch the Sci-Fi channel (yuck).

I was just starting to take painting lessons in Austin before we moved.I really enjoyed it and this got me thinking of looking for one in Houston. Anyone paint? This is my first bird house and I can see a lot of touch ups that need to be made. I decided to put it out on the porch anyways. That way a little bird could find some shelter from all this bad weather. This is my Martha Stewart moment, LOL! Hope y'all are staying dry this weekend.

I'm in San Antonio this weekend but I've heard about all the rain. They even mentioned it on the news here.
