I cannot tell you how good it feels to have some sense of normalcy again ~
although, our 'normal' is probably not your normal…
we are nuts,
we laugh a lot and loudly.
we do silly things and I love it that way ~
Hannah, Peter, Charlie & I
spent a beautiful Mother's Day together….
we ate supper and spent much-needed (for me) time together on the porch.
of course our goofy-girl made us laugh.
|Hannah looks like a Teletubby|
I look like a hyena.
or braying jackass.
|dirty knees from gardening|
We aren't the only ones trying to find Normal again ~
our Lazy is once again sleeping under the bush by the front gate…
~ the bush that he & Buddy would watch from.
|our little old man-dog|
|sweet dreams my faithful friend|
I enjoyed getting my hands (and knees!) dirty in the garden
mulching and transplanting ~
this rusty box was a gift from Joan and I've filled it with long-lasting plants
to enjoy all Summer long…
|thanks Joan xoxo|
I planted daisies, ivy, pansies and wormwort
then tucked in my old crow-on-a-spindle ~
...perfect for my old farmhouse porch.
it was such a pretty day,
our little patch of wild poppies were swaying in the gentle breeze ~
I love these little volunteers!
...aren't they the perfect color?
|love the seed pods too :)|
I even spent some time stitching and charting new patterns ~
I haven't offered a freebie here for a while,
...so here is one for you that reflects just how I feel lately:
|right click on the chart above, save it to your computer and print out.|
use whatever threads/colors you'd like ~
I would LOVE to see your finished work too!
I will be processing your orders and shipping them out all this week ~
I want to thank you for your patience while I get things back in full-swing!
I feel recharged and I know it is because
of all of the positive-ness that you have all recently sent my way…
I hold you all in my heart for that.
Have a beautiful day my sweet Friends!
* Blessed be *
