It's hard to type with a cat on your lap :). Our cat, Violet.....has completely won our hearts. She is so affectionate and fun. I am still knitting small wash cloths.....& then only at knitting group once a week, I confess. Sorry I have become such a lazy blogger, I get tired so quickly these days. I hope your summer is just right!

I love yellow, it it so cheerful. This one has seen better days, one of its seat boards rotted through and hubby will have to replace it. We are so behind on doing things outside. The rain and humidity saps our energy so quickly! But oh, the flowers! Their beauty tells of God's glory, surely. We planted seeds of cosmos that came up the richest red!

This was so very enjoyable...to go to an open house. Right here in our own little corner of the world too! The bathroom was a gem,done by the 'home & Garden channel guys. The only room I did not like was the living room. It was crowded and just not homey. I liked the front door, but kind of hate to see old wood painted. The staircase was split...about 6 steps up was a landing, then 6 steps going down to the kitchen, which was 'ikea'. Looking, but darkish...no cabinets and no room for even a small table. I loved the shelf under the dining room window and floral curtains. I love 'homey'. What fun to go through that house...but no way do I think it was worth the asking price of almost 200 grand, it was grand, but not that grand!

I have such a blessing at finding yard sale and flea market doilies. I fell in love with this pink one even though it's points are badly damaged. And....I had the loveliest ruffled pansy and when I looked for it this morning, it was dead ! On the bright side, our cat was taken to get spayed, only to find out she had already been done. She is the most loving cat, and the love an animal gives you is so special! I never realized that before. Oh, the blessings that come to us from the hand of our loving Heavenly Father! If anything happens to her I think I want another kitty cat, I am so fond of her. Even my husband has been won over.

We have a ground-hog and its offspring devouring our newly planted garden. What a shame. My hubby worked so hard getting that garden ready to plant. Lately,
I have done way more reading than anything else....including knitting. I was reading Jamie Langston Turner's books the second time around and now that I'm in-between books....well, I feel lonely in a way. And torn, whether to start another book or discipline myself to sew or something. I took a bad fall Saturday night....not really sure how it happened. You know...one minute you are ok and the next... down and hurting. Thankfully I didn't break anything but have a huge nasty bruise the size of a dessert plate on my upper leg. And lots of sore muscles. And tired.
I have watched some of 'Christy' while ironing yesterday. Don't you just love that series? I sure do! Its a toss up for me over which favorite movie I would put at the top of ' the List' . Larkrise to Candleford? Christy? Sarah Plain & Tall? Wind at my Back? and more....and if a movie like these has something I don't like included....I just fast forward and zip on by.
I hope where ever you are you are having a sunny day and sunny spirits. And yes, I would wish for you.... energy!. And blessings, that can only come from reading God's word, and taking it into your heart. For keeps.
Psalm 16:11 'Thou wilt shew me the path of life: iin thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures evermore.'

These wash cloth patterns are gems, and easy to knit! The small pink one is supposed to be for makeup removal. The yellow one has a teabag & sugar inside of it, nice to carry in your purse. I want to knit one from cotton. I found them at simplynotable.com I am still trying to post from the 'Blogger' app on the ipad and it won't let me type under the picture or add more than one picture at a time. Puzzling!

Blogger isn't working the greatest today. so I hope I can get these few pictures posted. Isn't he or she the cutest thing? Some other horses crowded around the baby and we were worried for its safety. The Mom kept circling her baby to get between it and other horses, and she worked it right over to the fence where my husband was watching and taking pictures. This little guy is probably about 30 minutes old or so. Notice- he or she has a little goatee. And its red mane is so pretty, isn't it.
