I have a red Hibiscus tree in a pot in the dining room. It's not the most attractive plant to be honest.. but boy does it put out some spectacular blooms! Yesterday I was happy to see three big red blooms as I walked to the kitchen to make my morning coffee. *LOVE*
I think 3 flowers are the most at one time I've ever had.
If you ever want a plant that will bring you joy all year, this is the one.
Dayle, Travis and his work friend Ernie took out boat out fishing the other day - they didn't catch any fish but they were in a very scenic area, in fact, that is Multnomah Falls way over there!
Someday I want to be on the boat and explore this area from the river. :-)
Funny thing is when I was driving home from the hot springs we spied the boat and just past where we saw it I saw a big barge and hoped the guys would not be in the middle of the shipping lane when it went by. WELL.. I guess they were right on the edge of the shipping lane.
Dayle was in the back of the boat fishing.. (see his fishing pole?) and was rather surprised by it coming by so closely. :-)
Then a nice big boat owned by National Geographic went by. Always something exciting on the river.
Look at the neat surprise Kristi got for me! She said.. "You didn't have a Halloween tablecloth." Isn't it great? It's 100% cotton, too.. my favorite. It's on the table now after a washing.. and I'm going to decorate the table for Halloween before we leave for the beach tomorrow.. the boys love those decorations.
I'm almost done with the third hat for my nephew's girls. I am happy to be able to make 3 hats out of one skein! Pretty good, huh? It's neat how the colors in this yarn self-stripe.. each hat is coming out with it's own personality. I will make flowers for the sides of them, each a different color. Fun!
Today we're packing up to leave tomorrow for a week in our trailer right on the beach. I was worried about how stormy it might be there, even though I even love the ocean in all it's moods.. but the forecast is for quite a bit of fair weather, can you believe it? My next post will be all beachy.. :-) I hope you have a wonderful week, too! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
