Only a few short months ago, I posted a photo of all the lavendar I harvested from our garden. Piles and piles of it ended up turning into this...30 little organic lavendar sachets to make a dresser drawer or linens smell like summer. Guess what the women on my Christmas list will be receiving this year?
Also, thank you to all the well wishers regarding our region's floods of the past week or so. While the floods were some of the worst in decades, the damage was not nearly as bad as it could have been thanks to the excellent planning and preparation our local govenrments and other organizations did in advance. There were so many wonderful people pitching in to fill sandbags, reinforce dikes, and help those whose homes and property were in harms way. Unfortuneatly, here we go again. We have another flood warning today due to very heavy rains and possibly strong winds (which pull down trees in the already water-soaked soils). Keep your fingers crossed that we can avoid that.
Eli the cat is wisely keeping warm and dry and dreaming of catching all the little birds at the feeder outside the window!
