Adorable Things

Hello!  I'm still making juice but I am not drinking it.  Bill does!  He says it continues to make him feel really good, so I carry on!  The reason I don't drink it (besides that it tastes too much like dirt) is because I like chewing.

I planted pansies.  I haven't planted seeds just yet.  One of these days, I will.

I hope all you American mamas had a happy Mother's Day.  I did!  We went to Fort Collins because our Brad was awarded his PhD and we got to be there!  We're so proud of him.  We came home and had dinner with the girls and their families.  

I had this big lamb on my Amazon wish list and Bill was so kind to get it for me, no questions asked.  (You know, questions like why do you want a big stuffed lamb?) Isn't she cute?  I love sheep (because I am one) and of course you know I love wool. 

AND this sweet teddy.  I have a love for bears, too.  I am not too old for soft toys.
He was way too generous and also gave me these.  Again, no questions or comments about a 63 year old granny wanting dollies.  They go with the two I received for Christmas.  Aren't they a cute bunch?
From Jenny's family - a darling llama!
Kelli gave me this a few years ago and then Brad and April gave me a colored one by the same maker.  More sheep!

Do you like the plates above?  I think I'm going to hang them on the wall.  I'll show you when I do.

I am knitting a big shawl called the Half and Half Wrap by Purl Soho.  There are 260 stitches per row.  Whew!  It's soothing. 

Brad and April also gave me this set of minis.  April and I are going to do a knit-vent.  We'll knit a little on a shawl each day of December.  Doesn't that sound fun?
Kelli gave me tulips (LOVE) and Jenny gave me the sweet blue vase of gorgeousness.  I was so spoiled.  So. Spoiled.

I'm going to sort out my plan for flowers in the garden.  Maybe I should draw it.

We have a busy week of fun with grands and shows and a brunch with Bible study ladies.

What's your favorite garden flower?  Mine are sweet peas, sweet Williams, and zinnias.  Even though I do not like getting overheated in the summer time, I DO like being outside and watching flowers grow.

I hope you are having a lovely day. God be with you!
