I made it to my homeland! Toes painted but no bag. I couldn't find just the right one. I think I'll make one but I must do some thinking about one hard thing . . . a zipper. I think I can do it.
I know I have wonky toes. Sorry.
Heather from Blackberry Rambles sells these lovely felt flowers at Etsy. Her shop is The Felted Flower Shop. I have an abundance of corsages/brooches to wear now. YAY!
Look at the sunflowers! These were for sale at the grocery store. So happy!
Views from Mom's house. Pretty! Potatoes are growing in the field and the sun is shining.
Gorgeous hydrangeas EVERYWHERE! #wedonthavethemincolorado
Mom lives in the neighborhood we grew up in. She lives in a condo now. My childhood home is nearby and they were having a garage sale so I asked politely if I could just peek inside the front door and the current owners said yes. It was so fun to see that dear old house again. It looks friendly! The same familiar rooms, the wrought iron rail where we set our school books, the kitchen. It made me so happy to see it all again.
The golf course is still very pretty. We were not ace golfers but we enjoyed the views.
Wild blackberry bushes. I wish I could have picked enough for a pie, but we've had delicious rhubarb crisp.
Do you see the eagle on the right in the photo above?
We went to my brother and sister-in-law's house for dinner last night. She put cute blue shutters on the shed my brother built. My other brother and his wife came, too. Dave is doing SO well after his surgery. Thank you again for praying!
Susan is a sweet granny and an excellent homemaker.
We went to my birth church. Here is where I was baptized, confirmed, and married. The pastor was retiring so the service was extra special.
My sister asked me to photograph the "cry room". It's sweet and pretty much the same as when we were kids.
Guess what's happening at home? Jeff and Christie adopted a kitten for James. So far, he loves her. Her name is Scout. I can't wait to pet our new little grand kitten!
Tomorrow we are taking the ferry over to see my sister. I can't wait. We're eating at my other brother's house on Tuesday. They have a really cool house, too.
On Wednesday we are going orca watching and I promise to take a lot of photos.
Thank you for tuning in.
I'll be back soon!
