My husband and I bought a couple of rainbarrels for the gardens and the lawns in an attempt to conserve water. It was a challenge to try and divert the water from the upper downspout in a way that we could collect the water but also have the overflow continue along its previous path.
The water seems to just dribble but I’m glad to say that we got at least one barrel of water from this last rainfall maybe two if it keeps raining. Here’s a couple pictures of my newest additions to the family.
I also got some goodies in the mail. Yesterday I received the material I ordered from “Thousands of Bolts” They can fit six yards of fabric into a priority envelope which costs me $9.95 to send to Canada so thats what I ordered and they sent a bonus fat quarter which was a pleasant surprise.
Today I got the polyester colour twist thread from ThreadArt. I’m not sure how this will sew up, hopefully it’s good quality thread. The price was right at 12 spools for $19.95 and I also ordered a couple of their namebrand rotary cutters, which were a good price at $2.49 each.
Lastly a picture of the flowers sent to John’s dad’s funeral on Monday from his fellow staff members in Performance Engineering at Darlington.
