Hi there! Yay for July! The garden grows and grows because of course it likes hot daytime temperatures and torrential downpours in the afternoon. I have been wearing my boots because I get so dirty when I drag the hose around and tip toe through the flower beds.
LOOK! Below I was still working away on my giant "Joseph coat" of a sweater. I apologize that the photo further down shows so much of the grubby downstairs bathroom, too.
One day last week when the weather was fine (not scary with thunder clouds looming) I took a walk by this pond. Hello, pretty goose!
Hello to the mama duck and her two tiny babies!
I was on a pepper kick before I remembered that peppers are a nightshade plant and can cause inflammation. Bill's neck was stiff and I was stiff all over. I overdid the pepper eating. I put them in a tomato/spaghetti sauce. It was delicious but over the top. Sigh.
Here is the blocked Penguono! I made the sleeves kind of king-ish because I was trying to add some softness to the crazy color combos.
I made a new journal for recording my weight and my reflections on what I eat and how it affects me (silly, I know) but I like to have a just right journal with room for artsy overflows.
Oh, Mr. Adorable. Isn't he beautiful?
The Prince and the Pea (cats find cozy spots, don't they?)
I made an apple pie for Independence Day. It's so pretty LOOKING but very "just okay" tasting. I put too much water in the pie crust and I forgot to put flour in with the sugar and cinnamon. I used the food processor to slice the apples and that was weird. Oh well. I guess I may have lost my pie baking skills.
Here, have some wool beauty. I just get crazier and crazier about wool. My fifth grade teacher taught us all to knit and my mother in law retaught me 35 years ago. I'm so grateful. I have loved knitting for a long long time.
I've been sewing a purple dress and purple pants. Yes, another weird granny outfit. It's cute though. It's an old handmade pattern given to me at Young Life camp by a creative young person. I've saved it all these years (over 30) and now I am using it again. I love it when THAT happens.
Thank you for stopping in, good visitor.
I hope you are feeling calm and happy today, but if you are not, I pray peace would come soon.
