Grapevines are laden

I see grape jam in our future! The vegetables and fruits are filled with sunshine and sweetness and one of the things I love is looking at the sun glowing through neat rows of jelly cooling in my kitchen window!

One of our hens

..dropped by my door to visit and show off her new chicks.  We had coffee together.  Well..I had coffee, she had treats.

It’s summertime! Lovely, lazy, shade-tree summertime! Therefore, the blog sits patiently, while I’m dreaming thru the daze. Not to say I haven’t been busy with my needles…here’s the progress of a little yellow sweater, no pattern but my old method that allows me to mindlessly knit and it seems to always fit. Sweaters do look pitiful as they grow, then suddenly they blossom. The little pink sweater has mismatched sleeves, the white on the left will come out and be replaced by the softer speckled yarn on the right. As usual, no pattern, just knitting….

Catching up!

It’s been ages since I posted, but summertime is always so full of things that need to be done and those lovely lazy hot afternoons. I’ve knitted and goofed off joyfully! Of course the herb garden isn’t yet done, the old computer up and died finally, the new puter is settled in nicely, the kids are growing, dogs are following the shade diligently and the cats are being cats.

Today’s news…our son has popped the question amid flowers, lobster dinner, cake and much laughter. M is a lovely young lady with two children, our son has one little guy and they’ve combined families perfectly! (Notice the surrounding applause…)


We’re all thrilled and looking forward to watching wonderful years ahead for them all!

I do wish I knew what kind of tree this is.

Remember when I said I’d stop the puppyposting? Well..I lied. Sam is nearly grown now, in size at least, (that’s him on the right there) and the Trio of Terrors are the best of friends. I’ll get back to blogging soonish, but for now, I have seven rose bushes to plant, my herb garden to reset, some bricks to order, a house to scrub, knitting that wants doing, books that want reading, a yard to make neat again and kids to kiss…and flowers to glory in! I love Springtime, there’s so much to do and plan and dream!

(edit:  Nope, that’s Sam on the left, sorry..it’s the problem with ambidextrous people like me…we always get it backwards.)
