Hello, how is your weekend going? We're just cruising along, doing this and that. Yesterday we had some rain and obviously some wind as when Dayle and I returned home from errands, lunch out, and my swim - a few of the Stargazer Lily stems were leaning down.. so, hubby snipped me 3 stems for the table. I wish you could smell how aromatic they are!
I can't tell you how wonderful it is to actually grown your own exotic bouquet! Thanks, Dayle for planting these bulbs after I ordered them!
After a few days of clouds and some rain the sun is back. It looks so pretty outside!
Do you have some flowers in a vase? I love seeing different bouquets on other's blogs. It's inspirational.
I'm using my leftover KnitPicks cotton to make some colorful pennant flags for a bunting strand. This is #1. I'm working on an orange one now. I plan to decorate camp with them.. leaving a week and a half from now. :-)
On our errands yesterday we got the boys these HUGE styrofoam glider planes. Today they got help from their daddy to put them together and were out flying them in the field. I even tried flying one and it was fun!
The littlies really enjoy the open spaces that we have here on the farm.. so do I. The best neighbor is a big patch of your very own ground. :-)
I told my friend Shirley that if they saw an old jar of marbles in an antique store to grab it and I'd pay her back. She found this jar of old marbles for $20. Caleb has had a good time playing with them. She even bought 3 "shooters" - aka big marbles - 1 for Dayle and each of the boys. Isn't that nice of her?
Yesterday Travis took the boys and roared off in his 1966 Mustang GT for an adventure. They ended up in Cascade Locks and hiked over to the island across from the old locks where the fishermen have great luck catching fish - I just LOVE this shot he got of the boys wearing their new riding gloves - see the sternwheeler in the background?
Here are Caleb L and Hayden R - on the bridge over the old locks, on the left is where the fishermen line up and the Bridge of the Gods in the background.
Have you noticed a running thread in my posts..? Ice cream? We are a proponent of ice cream in this family.
The boys and their dad are heading out hiking at Latourell Falls.. Dayle is working on making sure our boat trailer is ready for the trip. He's re-wiring and installing new brake lights and turn signals. He needs to lube the bearings, too. We have a double berth boat trailer for our 2 Sunfish sailboats which I haul behind my car. Dayle hauls the 30 foot trailer behind his Dodge 1 ton dually.
How is your weekend progressing? I hope you're having fun and living for the moment! Carpe Diem!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
