Bugs, Kids, and Flowers

 I bought some bugs because they are so cute, but now I am not sure what to do with them.  If I put them in the garden (my original intention) they'll get buried in dirt.  Any ideas?
I'm trying to finish the other sock to go with this scrappy one. 
 Look!  All the grandsons!  Aw! 

Millie was a goose in The Aristocats.
 Missy was Duchess.
 Birdie was a genie in Aladin.  
 James had a birthday!  Four!  Yikes!

 I put on gardening clothes and planted four seed packets (sweet peas, bachelor buttons, and nasturtiums).  I have MUCH more to do in the garden.  Now. 

 Plum lost a tooth!  How is she old enough to lose teeth?  

 My Norwegian mittens come up high.  I'm learning.  It takes me a while.  I have to take an emotional rest after each row.  😊
 Timothy is a shiver bug.  He roasts himself in front of my little heater. 
 Now both Kelli and Jenny have trailers, so both families are on the road right now.  Winnie (Kelli's golden retriever) is happy as can be.  Isn't the lake pretty?
I have been reading and writing.  Knitting, ironing, and making soup.  We have a busy weekend ahead and in a week three granddaughters are coming to stay for five days.  It will be one long lazy slumber party/tea party/ice cream fest/long sleeps (Granny hopes).
I think I said this last year, but so far I don't have a lot of summer vision.  I like swimming and looking for flower blooms. I do not like to sweat and I don't sleep well when I'm too warm.  Whine. Whine. Whine.  I'll think of something to relish about the sunshine season. 
What have you been up to?
