New blooms…

New blooms are appearing on the mums… I never knew mums would bloom in the spring until last year. I think it’s because of all those cold rainy spring days we had. It will be nice to have more color out there, as everything else is green… That tall dark green on the left is…

It’s sunny and warm…

Wow, some days it’s hard to think of a title. So, there you go. It’s sunny and warm today. I might get in the pool. Twobie and Archie had a bit of fun inside this morning, just moments before I booted them outdoors. It’s amazingly hard to capture a good photo of a kitten with…

The story of Twobie and Archie…

A while back I promised the story of Twobie and Archie, although it’s really not their story, it’s the story of the cats who came before them, their namesakes. The story of Twobie… When Twobie arrived last month, she became the second of two gray tabby cats born to us. The first was Goober. Goober,…

Not in full bloom…

The duckies have a new pool… They are in it almost constantly. Of course they scarpered when I came out to photograph them! The blue pool was getting a bit ridiculous as they had outgrown it and were swimming in circles, like one of those carnival games at the fair. Thank you H! He got…

A rainy May day…

I was away from home 8 days and in that time the ducks turned more white… It was very surprising. H said he went to check on them one day and overnight it seemed they had turned whiter. He was worried they were sick or something…on his watch…haha. (Check out those beans! ) It’s been…

The weather is…

The next four days are supposed to be… A couple days ago it was super… When it’s done being cold and rainy, I bet it will be… In fact, the past two months have been… Ugh. Of course, I won’t be here for a week of it, as I head out Friday. I’m actually looking…

Ready for the day…

My ducks are in a row… …literally and figuratively. By that I mean I got a good amount of sleep, tea is made, lunch is started (my giant sweet potato will take a while to cook), cats are fed, kittens have been checked on and mama fed, computer work out of the way…I’m ready to…

Honey dreams…

We were at Costco the other day and guess what they are selling? Beehive kits! I told H I really wanted one…he continues to remain in a state of disbelief. You have cats AND ducks and you want bees, too? Well, yes, yes I do. (And a dog, in case you forgot!) Yesterday we were…

Look what I did…

I didn’t mean for it to happen. I didn’t plan for it to happen. It just happened… Seriously, it was an innocent trip to Orscheln (pronounced Orsh-lin here because no one knows how to say Orscheln. They simply call it Tractor Supply in Oklahoma!)…Orscheln, the only store in town that just happens to have a…

Cats and cloth…

Today is mostly about cats…again. Perhaps it’s that there is a lot to say about them, and perhaps this is indicative of the fact that they take up such a large space in my world. This is a rare cuddly moment with Matty. She loves to cuddle, especially first thing in the morning. But now…

Cabins and dreams…

Last night I finished my second log cabin piece, as inspired by Jude’s┬álatest works.   It’s been fun to put them together. I had enough fabrics from last year’s dyeing efforts to make each swatch a different fabric. The two lightest colored pieces were dyed with mulberries. The others were dyed with Rit. Maybe I…

A bit of this and that…

I don’t have much to write about today. I’m mainly sharing pictures. Why? Because it’s sunny and gorgeous out, I slept late so I am missing a chunk of the day, and I’m itching to go here and stitch: Hey, don’t laugh. It is a very redneck set up, but it works! I made this…
