I'm packing up, leaving this afternoon for a visit with loveable people! Woo hoo! This is a long post/lots of pictures. I hope you don't mind! Jane Brocket's lovely book The Gentle Art of Knitting came in the mail. Oh, it's a good one. Isn't the cover delicious?
Another interesting day-by-day. I'll share about this later.
Uh oh. The maple helicopters are falling. It's July! Oh well. I do love fall and the green juicy leaves I'm enjoying now will soon put on their autumn show. That's okay.
The goldfinches are visiting my cosmos! Elizabeth from France said they would and she was right. They are a bright dash of happy as they swoop in and out of the front garden.
|Look at this little show off!|
Country hollyhocks are stretching to the sky in the fairy garden.
|Still not speaking to each other, I see.|
|Guarding the fairy door.|
|Oh, she came out to have a swing on a hollyhock!|
Here's my stack of Gladys. I think it is beeeeyooootiful.
Crafty Crow taught me how to make dragonflies. Another cool project featured of late involves gluing twigs on a can and planting an herb or some such thing inside and then you have a tree! I'll do it when I get home. I'll pick up some twigs at the beach. I think my giveaway will involve things I find in Washington. Stay tuned. I'll be gone from my blog until I return to Denver, but I'll be thinking of you as I gather.
These are beach rocks from one of my past visits. This is how I bring the beach to my bedside.
A fun thing about traveling: little things. Do you like that part of packing?
Tonight I shall walk up these stairs and be in the rich company of my mom and dad. I shall savor every moment.
Do you see why? Aren't they beautiful?
I shall eat a crab. I'll take a lot of photos and show you when I return. I'll miss you. I'm not going to fiddle around on the computer while I'm away.
So, when I get back to my door in a week, I'll have two weeks to love summer before school starts. Two weeks is a nice long time.
So, bless your heart for checking on me. Prayers for you. I'm off to stuff my backpack and handbag. (BIG HUG!)
