Another short one…

I’ve been busy upstairs today.   I was initially going to vacuum the floor and straighten up from when the cats were in the spare bedroom. I ended up completely redoing the room. I’m really happy with it. If you can’t tell, it’s my new therapy room. I used to do massage therapy, but now…

Just flowers…

Not a lot going on here today. Just some flowers to share. Stitched flowers… And some birthday flowers… I woke up with terrible shoulder pain this morning…too much stitching??? It hasn’t really let up so far. I’m going to go ice it while I watch a show. I hope you have a lovely day!  

Another bloom…

So…..I’m 9 months into this blog venture. If nothing else, it is useful as an online diary. I have found writing daily is very therapeutic. Last year when I began I never would have thought I would have been able to come up with something new to share 5 days a week. But, so far,…

The perfect swim…

Last night, after temps reached 95 degrees and it was cooling down, H and I chilled out in the pool. Finally, after days of the wind blowing like crazy, there was no wind, just a gentle breeze, and the water temperature was finally perfect, no longer chilly. I was in there for 2 hours! It was…

Aging and honesty…

Jude was talking recently about how she is aging, how she sees it. I am on the tail end of my 40s, which is really hard for me to believe. There’s a birthday this month. My 40s were where I really started noticing how I was aging, although a lot of things started going off when…

It’s getting hot in here…

Temperatures have reached the 90s this week. Great pool weather! Which reminds me I need to get an updated pic of the pool to send you. We really like our little arrangement. H said he sits at works and dreams about being in the pool. The flowers are coming along, a bit too slowly for…

Hmmmmm…..

With such an event-FULL weekend, I’m finding it hard to decide what to talk about. I guess I’ll start with the gift H surprised me with Friday. It was a gift that almost didn’t happen. One of H’s co-workers foisted it upon him as he was leaving the office, insisting that I would like it….

A story, a path…

This feels like a story… It feels like a story on a path I’m following… The stitches for each little patch just pop into my head effortlessly… Why is that? Why is this so easy?   I don’t know, but it certainly is fun… I want to keep going, just keep making these… Maybe I…

This morning’s garden…

I got an early start today, which was great, and went out to work in the garden for a couple of hours. Here are the red mums that are so big now, at least three times as big as they were when they were flowering in a pot last fall and more button sized… We…

Endearing…or Inappropriate?

When I visited my Mom Sunday she gave me these tea towels… She said she didn’t want to use them because she didn’t want to be inappropriate… And then she followed that by talking about someone she knows and then saying something inappropriate…oh well. The pictures are really cute, and the stitching is nicely done….

A visit to the prairie…and a giveaway…

If you’ve been here before, you might notice things look a little different. I felt like June Wildflower needed an update. So far I really like it. I hope readers do, too. Yesterday H and I went to my mom’s for a visit. I hadn’t been there in a while, and with the wildflowers growing…

Some finish work…

Sort of. Finish work is usually what you do to finalize a project…edging, stitching a piece into something like a bag. H bought me The Textures of Home for Valentine’s Day in February. It’s a piece by Hazel Monte. It’s been sitting on my old Singer sewing machine/vanity ever since then. Every morning I would eyeball it, trying…
