It's been over a month since we've had any rain - here in the Hill Country we only get rain when it storms, then we have to deal with possible tornadoes, straight line winds, hail & lightning strikes with not much rain.  Two nights ago we had lots of thunder & lightning and we actually got 2 1/4 inches of rain.  It was a time of celebration in the neighborhood, we didn't have to water gardens or lawns!  Lots of worn out knees from thanking God!

Blue Ribbon at the Fair!

I won a blue ribbon - first place in watercolor/fine arts division at the Burnet County Fair this past weekend - June 10-12, 2011.  I was surprised because there was lots of great competition.  All of the entries in all of the categories were amazing and I even got to taste some of the baked goods winners but I'm glad I didn't have to judge any of it!
