What's Going On








I made this little pillow out of a couple of blocks that have been hanging around here forever.  It makes me smile every time I glance at it and see the red button in the center.  :)
The hummingbirds have been giving me a run for my money when it comes to keeping the feeders full for them.  We've had  multitudes of them this year.  I love watching their antics.
I captured this Egret at just the right moment for his reflection to be almost perfect in the water.  These are the kinds of photos that I'm always trying to 'capture'; somehow the photo is never quite as beautiful as the actual moment was.
The Black-eyed Susans and sunflowers have been such bright spots in my days.  Such common, humble flowers but I love them!  We've had a new visitor in the yard this Summer...a red fox squirrel.  He is cute as a button.  He zips into the sunflowers, quick as a blink he's up the stalk, nabs a sunflower head, and rushes away with his treasure.  :D  I know to a lot of people they are pests, but I think he is simply charming!  :D
And last but by far not the least, I have been crocheting a tee shirt rag rug.  Randy only wears white tee shirts---he has a mustache---need I say more?  :)  He's lucky if he gets a month's wear out of a new one before he drips coffee or chocolate on it.  I can't get the stains out, and as I was gathering up a pile of them to stick in the 'rag bag' for the garage, I decided to just make a rug out of them.  I love doing these rugs, and haven't made one in a long time.  I love it!  I have no idea how big it will be.  I'm just stripping tee shirts and crocheting.  Really relaxing and almost zen-like.  I have a LOT of dingy, white tee shirts.  :D

Summertime Fun at Ships Landing








 Last Friday (7-8-11) our friends brought their Trail Mini up and camped for the weekend.  They had their two furbabies, Butch and Ellie Mae, with them.  Everyone had a great time!  Swimming, canoeing, eating, chillin'---We loved having you guys.  Hope you get to come again before the snow flies.
