It's been raining all day here. The remnants of the horrible hurricane that flooded Houston has moved our way but thankfully they say it won't last more than the day. No floods for us, but definitely this storm is dropping a decent amount of rain even after it has been churning and raining for many days as it moved from the Gulf of Mexico here to the Northeast East.
So since it was dark and wet, I enjoyed a low key day. The cooler weather motivated me to spend a little time in the kitchen this morning so I made a big pot of chili (my husband's style-no beans) and also a lemon, chocolate chip and poppy seed cake.
The cake is yummy and doesn't have any type of frosting on it. This way here I can bring a slice for a snack at work.
And after my nap I made a little art time.
Blue and copper are my colors for Yvonne's fun challenge over at Art Journal Journey. Its time to Colour My World.
All this cool weather has me thinking of fall I guess. I love painting leaves with copper paint. I think it really makes them look like fall oak leaves.
I added some little pieces of mica to the moon to give it a little more depth.
Tomorrow is the Labor Day holiday here in the US. One more day off for me. It's been a good weekend so far, and I hope yours has been too.
