The borders are tea-dyed and the houses are built.

I’m washing the wool as I type. I’m so glad the weekend has arrived. Ransom and I have already gotten our run in. I made chocolate chip cookies for Chelsey. She’s coming home this weekend. What is it about homemade cookies that says ‘I love you’?

I’ve got a pot of Jambalaya cooking… Cornbread with it and we’ll call it supper. Several have asked about my folks in Louisiana. They’re OK. They were without power for 4 days--- most would think “No big deal”, put couple that with 90 degree temperatures and it’s pretty unpleasant. They have lots of tree limb damage and their church is 18 inches deep in water. That was pretty devastating to them…but buildings can be repaired and no lives were lost so they’ll be OK.

One last thing---I’m going to date myself—guess what I’m listening to? Remember Christopher Cross? I ordered Eric a book on CD for ‘back to school’ because he’s way too cool for pink boxes. He listens to it while he travels in his car. Anyway I ordered Christopher Cross’s Greatest hits--- such great memories in every song…..Google it and listen….

Onto the weekend…..

Your blocks are just lovely, and the cookies are making my mouth water.
Love the old music - Amy and I love to listen to Elvis in the car ... we crank it up and bop around, can't imagine what other road users must think!!
Have a wonderful weekend with Chelsey.

Your houses are very cool! I bet there won't be any leftover cookies;)

I love your houses - how big are the blocks? they look huge.

Hope you have a great weekend with Chelsey. Will it feel odd having her home? I love Christopher Cross and, no, you're not dating yourself :-)

I am just devouring the houses, the checks, everything you have done, just stunning!
Loved the pink box for Chelsey,all the essentials included- you seem to be managing well...even if no direct tv!
Have a great day, Tracey

Are those baby trees in the grass behind your muslin?

I love C. Cross... "Caught between the moon & New York City..."
