Gifts from Tanya

Summer is in full swing with hardly time to stay in and type. I wanted to show the surprise I received from Tanya on Saturday. Handmade gifts from Utah--- there’s fabric, paper, recipe cards, cards for sharing and a handmade box that I’m fighting my daughter for. Thanks again for sharing your talent.

We’ve been working on housebreaking Chelsey’s pup. I don’t know if he’s trained or we are. He is reminding me that puppies are a lot of work. Chelsey’s being really responsible and taking charge of him, but puppies take more that one person – exhausting.

Weather has yet to hit 80 degrees, but the garden seeds are popping out of the ground.

Snowshoeing has been replaced with watering flowers, biking and running Ransom along side of the road as the bugs are real thick in the woods.

Letting go, kind of like being Brave enough to ride the bicycle with no hands---(even for just a few seconds)

Those are lovely handmade gifts. So bright and cheery!
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Guess you can liken that to the puppy.

OMG, I would love for it to be 80, we hit 104 today and they say 110 maybe tomorrow. Texas heatwave.
Great gifts.

Gorgeous gifts there! We are hosebraking a puppy too, but I think we are the main ones getting broken!!
Loved the colours in your Grandmother's quilt, hard to believe it isn't modern. Tracey
