Imagine our surprise when we looked out in the front yard... our neighbor's house had been FLOCKED!!! Pink Flamingos everywhere!
It's a cute fundraiser for the
church youth group.
I also harvested the first ripe tomatoes from my row of 'mater plants. I put in 6 different varieties this year. Some are early some are late. I ate two of these just as a snack! Yummmmmmm
Today I was energized to get things done, with the fresh air coming in. We were supposed to get some rain storms, but they passed over and out to Lake Winnebago. I happily sat up in my sewing room for a while this afternoon, working on a quilt. Fresh air breezing in the open windows, and listening to birds and the wind chimes. It was such a pleasant day. I sewed and ironed and cut and pieced. I have 30 of these star blocks done now in blues and yellows.
With my new Handi Quilter frame, I can make the entire quilt process myself with the batting and backing and swirly quilting stitches. That is the fun creative part! The sewing machine gets pushed around the frame where the quilt is held taunt. As I move it around, it makes stitches wherever I go! LOL (I wish it were that easy....)
Later in the day, BOTH of those danged doggers decided it was time for a NAP! It's funny how they can beg and whine to be pulled by us up onto the bed in the morning for a little cuddle time. But when it's the middle of the day, they can both easily JUMP up on the bed themselves and wait for me to come and take a nap!
It's a pretty high bed!
If they insist that it's naptime
I must comply, right?
It was so pleasant this evening after Steve got home. He took care of a few things in the garage and then I cooked a nice hot meal for a change. We actually had spaghetti, garlic bread and salads for dinner. The temps dipped down in the 60's and we even put on sweatshirts to take a walk! What a change from high 80's and humidity in the 70% range for the last two weeks.
Yup, those dog gone good doggers wanted to take a W-A-L-K.... off we went for the evening with two swishy butts leading the way. All in all, it was a dog gone good day.
