‘Rainy days and Mondays always get me down…’ at least Mondays do…. I’m glad we’ve made it to Tuesday. I had a great weekend, that’s what makes Mondays tough. You don’t want them to end.
Friday night we went to the show. The Bruce Willis Flick was great. A little ‘Over the top’ as far as stunts go… but I don’t watch movies for reality anyway…It was fun. We went out for pizza afterward, I almost felt like I was on a real date. We should do it more. We had called home to check on the kids (not that they needed it) but Eric said he and a date we headed for Pizza and asked if we wanted to come. We even did the silly puzzles with crayons on the back of the paper placemats. And we laughed…I think that was the best part.
Saturday I got on my bike and set out for the first picking of the Black-eyed Susan’s for the Season.
The Ceramic pitcher was a gift from my Mom 22 years ago when we moved up here. It’s still a favorite. It gets filled with different things depending on the season—from Tulips to Pine boughs at Christmas. The birdhouse is from my sister-in- law… definitely a Louisiana Swamp Birdhouse.
Saturday night we had dinner with friends—It was an outside thing and the temps were chilly, but we really had fun.
I’m back working on my Primitive Garden Blocks---Here’s the block I’m working on now. It definitely needs pressing but I wanted to share it.I've been marking placement with a white chalk pencil. Even if I don't exactly match it, it kind of gives me an idea of where everything goes and everything fits a lot better.
I’ve got two old crows and seven orange flowers to stitch on and this block will be complete. I guess I’m officially 3 blocks behind—the decision is which to do next; they’re all just darling.
Tomorrow’s a Holiday--- no work
Crickets—I just love their sound
My new front porch steps.
