I had a relaxing holiday weekend last week. I worked outside in the mornings when it was cool, doing my best to keep up with the weeds, who are not bothered by the lack of moisture. Then I spent as long as I could in the sewing room, which gets very stuffy in the afternoons. I'll show what I made soon- it's kind of a surprise for the "Art C Girlz".
I am also addicted to the flowers from the book I showed last time. Here are a few more. At some point I'll figure out what to do with them! I hope to make a bouquet of them for my desk at work.
We're still "enjoying" visits from our natural neighbors.
|This guy came for a breakfast of grubs or beetles I guess- he rooted around out there for about an hour!|
|This time it's Mockingbirds nested in the Magnolia tree right off the front porch!|
I couldn't resist buying this lettuce at the farmer's market! Isn't it gorgeous???
I decided to add a "green tip" of the week. Nothing you haven't heard before, but we all need reminders of the basics now and then, right? This week I'm reminding you to buy the largest size possible at the store. If you use small portions, split a large package of product into small reusable containers when you get it home. Less packaging means less materials and energy to produce, less to throw away and less cost to you in the long run!
I am grateful for:
Quiet time in the garden and the sewing room.
Visits with my sons both far and near.
Friends who understand and support you when you need it.
My bursitis subsided without having to get a shot!
Doing "nothing" with my hubby!
