Oh my, its so good to be home again. We had a wonderful visit with our grandchildren, daughter and her husband but home is home. My husband still has a few days of vacation left and we've been so busy doing yardwork and shopping together. I love every minute of time spent together and am looking forward to his retirement in Sept. It can't come fast enough for either of us!
I have pictures to post about various things....going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Boy, was that fun! My sweetheart bought me a 'carder'...for blending sheep's wool. Thats another post though. We just got up and I told him I'd help him stack firewood....just the kindling.
Its such a pleasure to be able to be outside at this time of the year. Its been raining steadily for quite a few days....off and on. So its been a good time to transplant. Our Silver Mound ornamental grass has sent up scads of babies. Now what to do with some of it! There is a picture in a book I bought, that has an adorable little 'sitting spot' created outdoors and I'd like to try creating one. Also yesterday....ahhh, one of my heart's desires....Hubby bought a new board to make me an old-fashioned swing to hang from the maple branch. Thats on our to-do list today.
Also.....I've been the happy recipient of two new books out by Jamie Langston Turner and Lynn Austin.....oh such good reading!!!
Talk to you later...I'm off to help outside now. Let's make this day special =). "And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men." I Thessalonians 3:12
