Oh my! Jolly arrived in England without a hitch! I really LOVE it that each hostess has taken her time to entertain him, find him wife candidates, and apply her own style to his tour. Aren't people kind? I'm so thankful!
Angela will keep him for a while and I will keep you updated when she posts about Jolly. Here is the recent post about his arrival: Jolly in England
It's yarn crawl time which means Colorado knitters visit as many wool shops as they wish to and get stamps or stickers for each shop. I don't participate but I did get a bargain when I happened to be in Longmont near the shop there. Many yarn stores hold special sales during this time. These are mini skeins for socks or shawls. Aren't they lovely?
A sweet friend and I organized the teacher resources for the children's program at Bible study. Doesn't it look great?
I got this book in the mail. Does it look interesting?
I think THIS one looks VERY interesting!
I've had this book for a while, but I'm revisiting it. There are so many yummy veggie recipes inside!
The glads that Millie Rose and I planted are wonderful! I've never been successful with them before so YAY!
Thank you for visiting Angela (and Jolly) and thank you for visiting ME. You're nice.

Today Bill and I are going up to meet our Brad for lunch! He and April had their 19th (or was it 18th?) anniversary yesterday! WOW! They are a lovely pair!
MK did one more post before she sent Jolly off to Angela! Definitely go read it. It's darling!
I pray you are feeling encouraged. I pray that you look to Heaven as your forever home.
I am so glad you come by and say hello to me. It really is wonderful!

Kelli's household needed two more cats (total 5 now and three dogs). Aren't they darling? They look like Tim, don't they? They are very soft and have long bunny feet.
A friend came for lunch and we had a yummy plate of all this stuff.
I made my Mexican dress into a tunic.
We went to a new ice cream place. They had gluten free cones. HEAVEN!
We've been to the pool!
We've eaten more pizza this summer than we did last summer. Gulp.
I even went to the pool by myself one day and swam some laps. I wore my contacts and my goggles (and a funny green tie dye swim cap) and it was so fun to glide (very slowly) through the water. I do love a swim. Yes, I have a bump on my foot from those purple sandals.
I finally finished these funny gold and green socks. One is bigger than the other and they are a bit drab but they fit alright and it's good to have a pair. I couldn't just stop after one, could I?
The zucchini is beautiful! Each one is shiny and looks like a prize winner. We need to make some zoodles. I learned a new knitting technique (well, new to me) called the magic loop. I watched lots of YouTube tutorials and finally figured out how to do it. I have never knit a sock toe up before either. These are called scrappy socks. I love them and I just want to knit, knit, knit.
Oh hi, Jolly! How ARE you? Did you have fun at MK's? Are you feeling very loved?

The weather cooled off today and since I sat for hours knitting I decided to hop on my bike and go for a easy cruise around the neighborhood. Oh, I do love swimming and biking! I really do!
We're having pizza again for dinner. I love gluten free pizza and I love having a cooking break.
I am glad it is August but I do have a little more "to do's" than I normally do and I must pace myself and apply myself. Yikes.
Thank you for popping in, nice person.
