Out running errand (will it ever stop???) to pick up two pictures I had framed....and that took about 10 minutes, tops.
Just long enough for the sky to open up with a Texas style gullywasher to cut loose as I was about to leave the store.
These shot were taken about five minutes after the storm started. I was waiting with a few other customers for a break in the storm. No sense heading out into a rain storm with newly framed water colors!
When it started hailing, I got pretty jumpy. A brief hail storm can ruin a car's exterior. The biggest hailstone was about the size of a dime, definitely big enough to whack a paint job.
Thankfully, somehow my car was unblemished. I was planning on running a few more errands that night, but seeing as how the sky was turning black in every direction I headed home instead, 'cuz my Mama didn't raise no fool!
Besides, watching a storm is much more interesting activity from the deck.
To make up for missing that bit of errand running, I took a long lunch break the next day.
I was prowling around, out on another area rug hunt.
I already own several great area rugs, the problem is that they are all the highly traditional oriental/persian murky-muddy colored rugs.
I loved them in Houston where the walls and the flooring were all cream.
But here in the lap of the Wasatch Mountains...in a 50's style ranch house...something different is needed.
I liked this one's design, but not the brown in it.
Liked this one, but don't want that much red in the room....
I like this one, and it is the right size. Trouble is I feel like it should be in a pre-school classroom.
