Hello friends! Here it is Monday again, after a full and busy weekend for us (Granny and Grampy). It's a quiet day today. 😎
The church we've been attending gives away three-month devotionals and I've been enjoying mine (after finding it in a pile on my desk😏).
One day we went to one of those big stores that sells overstocks of all kinds and we found little baby dolls. Sam and Plum gave them baths.
A pretty dianthus purchase from the Home Depot.
I'm putting them in front of the random zinnias.
Fuzzy Wuzzy likes this cuddly gray blanket.
We loved spending time with our Ft. Collins grands while their parents celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary. I can hardly believe they've been married that long!
Two of the cousin families couldn't come over and join us for dinner (Kelli's gang is in California and Christie's grandma died so her family gathered to honor her memory).
The cutie pies had fun together!
Look at Aria making a funny face 😇
We're having a cool day with a bit of rain which is a lovely change. See? The weather is making me love August. I can even go outside this afternoon and plant more dianthus and pansies while dinner cooks.
I looked back at past Augusts and found some photos of my river. This is the Skagit River in Washington. Quite a few years ago, my parents and I took a little driving trip north of my hometown. Isn't it pretty? Do you have a river? If you are a good Ratty or Mole, you do.
I have a personal Jane Austen week that I've planned starting Friday. I am going to read Jane Austen books, enjoy Jane Austen devotions (yes, I have a Jane Austen devotional), knit a small Jane Austen project, draw some Jane Austen frocks, drink tea, and walk. Sound fun? I'll watch some J.A. films, too. My favorite is Sense and Sensibility, but I'll watch a few more.
There is no reason to do this at this particular time, but I'm looking forward to it. I'll take some pretty photos and let you know how it goes.
Thank you so much for stopping by! You're friendly!
