I just finished this 8 harness waffle weave blanket.
I went a little wild on the colors.
Don't be shocked.
I finished mowing the lawn at the studio. Consuela couldn't keep the lawn mower going.
Imagine my surprise, when I realized the spark plug wire wasn't connected.
Her response: "Who took it off???"
Her: "Well, I'm not a mechanic."
So after mowing, and then weed whacking in the heat, I decided to take a break.
I am followed wherever I go outside.
Just far enough from the house, we were all alone.
I am not much into parades.
But it is a day to remember. A day to be pensive.
My Dad was in WWII. He spent most of it in the north sea on a small boat .
It sounded pretty frightening.
So today, I am grateful for the life I have.
Sitting quietly, this cardinal swooped over my head.
And then, I think he MOONED me.
My little buddy was content to lie in the grass, since I was nearby.
Cats and dogs need so little. Food, shelter, and love.
Makes me wonder sometimes, why we humans need so very much.
If you look close, you can see his little paws 'kneading'. Guess he's a happy camper.
I bought two chairs, this lavender one, and a turquoise one. $19.99 at Ace Hardware.
Big spender, yup, that's me.
I didn't realize that I had caught this butterfly in the frame, until I saw the shot on the computer.
He was enjoying the back yard quiet, as well.
I hope your holiday was a good one. I hope you found a few minutes to just be still.
There's really nothing quite like it, you know.
