After the rain

 Oh Matthew, you were a sneaky boy.
We had a lot of rain on Saturday as Matthew made his way through our area, but nothing like what both of our kids and their family. Rain, that much rain when you live closer to the coast is some scary stuff, both kids lost power, one for close to 24 hours.
As a mother it was hard not to be there with all of them for this one.

The mushrooms were before the storm........

 This is a favorite mug around here for coffee or beer. It holds a good amount of coffee, the cup that really gets you going in the morning.
Then later it makes a great beer mug. This was my sister Lee's favorite for coffee and  Mark's dad, Bob always kept 3 in the freezer for his beer.
Oh, I miss those two.

I was taking pictures of tiles for a customer.
This one I call, "Long Neck" He is all neck. I try not to have favorites but there are times. Then again, it is like I like them all as I am working on them. All different with different personalities. He looks like he's holding a secret for you, or a bit more wild child. 
 A few changes and this one looks like he is more humble in thought.
I don't plan this, it is just the way they come out.

Another mushroom that looks good enough not too eat! The color is alarming red, with sprinkles.
I hope you all weathered Matthew as well as possible.
I don't know about you, but I am ready for a boring week.

I'm pretty sure the last mushroom is poisonous, ammonite variety I think.

Mushrooms on tiles????
I have two of those mugs and they are always ready in the frig when I need a really cold beer..... hmm like maybe now! Perfect beer tankards, and the handles.... sigh.

Matthew sounded terrible for all of you down there, we had just the last scraps of the storm which was ENOUGH.
