I tied my fake flowers to the entry posts. When the peonies were blooming and I had left over flowers from school, I didn't want to add fake with fresh. Silly.
My project today was this. Curtains for the garage. They don't look quite as "WOW!" as I thought they were going to (in my dreams) but I am VERY glad to have completed all that straight sewing.
I know it hasn't been that long since I planted these, but it seems like they are taking forever to "take".
Yes, I know. It would have been good to thin the carrots.
Radishes sure are encouraging!
Here's our piper, Brad. He's our oldest and he's always been musical. I'm so proud of him. Doesn't he look Scottish?
While we were waiting for him to pipe by in the parade we noticed this funny "lap dog"!
Fun! Scary, though.
Then these three came to our house for a sleepover. They slept (brace yourself) TWELVE hours at Granny's. Wow!
The next day, Sam and Lizzy came. Sam wanted to make cookies as soon as Lizzy went down for her nap. Lizzy aka Plum Cake.
Grampy took Sam for a walk to the grocery store and Plum stayed with me. Doesn't she look cozy?
Finally, sweet James! Isn't he sweet? I love his gentle face!
I've been reading a lot. I'm still relishing the story presented in In This House of Brede. I loved it so much that I'm leaving it out for a while. I miss the characters.
I'm knitting a yellow shawl that is very puffy and cozy. It is for my mama, to keep her warm around the shoulders this fall and winter.
Every little simple joy like making tasty meals, writing letters, using essential oils, watering flowers, baking cookies, and ironing feels right and good. I am very thankful for peace.
God be with you.
