Hello! How was your weekend? We've been taking it easy and enjoying some sunshine. Kristi took her big camera outside to capture the birds and things as she enjoys spending time on the deck when the weather is fair. She got this neat shot of a Goldfinch at our feeder.
One of our Simba, our wild cat. Quite the battle notches in his ear. He's a scrapper for sure.
We keep a hummingbird nectar feeder up all year as we have some year-round little birds. This one has unusual ruffled feathers on his neck. Kristi got these bird photos.
Kristi fell in love with these plants at the beach, so we got a pot of them for her. It's called Sea Thrift!
Sweet William.. this pot comes back every single year.. no problem. Love it.
The Rose Campion is in bloom! It's everywhere.. but you know what? I don't care.. I love it!
Here it has sprung up in one of our pots. :-)
Kristi wintered over her unique colored Flowering Maple. She put it out on the deck and it's blooming nicely.
4th of July Rose.
Thanks for the suggestions on my lace edging on my shawl. I tried one way and it didn't work, but then tried doing ch 3 loops and that seemed to give it the look I was after. I might do one more row if the yarn hold out. But it's near done, yay!
My sister Denise and her husband are in Peru.. they climbed to see Machu Pichu. She said "I survived Machu Pichu" when she sent me this image. I'm so proud of her!
Thanks for all the good wishes on my illness. It appears that this round of antibiotics are not doing the trick. I will call the doc tomorrow. Meantime, the show will go on. The dress rehearsal is tomorrow. Now they've asked us to sing another song, "This State is Your State" about Oregon.
Now.. I cannot let this day go by without honoring our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. My Dad was in the Marines and went in on the first wave at Iwo Jima during WW II. Dayle served in the Army during the Vietnam War as a helicopter pilot - he was shot while flying and was able to put the copter down with only one leg - the other was shot through the femur and broken. We're proud of the veterans in our family. I know almost all of you have a family member who's served your country. Let's all take a moment to remember them and thank them for keeping us free. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
