Grand-Puppy and a Gift from Robin

Hi there, come on in for a visit.  We had a fun family day yesterday - our older son Shawn and his wife Beth and 2 boys Mike and Gabe came over for a visit.  They brought their new German Shepherd puppy that they got from Dayle's sister's daughter's daughter-in-law.  Did you get that?  They drove down to Klamath Falls to pick up the pup and had a nice 4 hour visit with them.  Meet Schatzi.  She's really smart and well-behaved - I think she'll be a real nice dog.

We had a nice afternoon and evening, Dayle BBQ-ed chicken on his pellet grill/smoker and I made a big bowl of potato salad and some baked beans.  Mike was showing how strong he is by picking up both of the little guys.  :-)

While I was outside with Beth and the puppy I snapped some photos of a couple new flowers.  Gracie took me to a little hidden plant nursery near her house and she got me 4 new plants for my birthday!  A Million Bell, below, 2 hollyhocks and another one.  

I also found a basket of Streptocarpus and brought it home.  I've had them before and they are prolific flowerers.

Pretty little purple flowers.

My SIL sent me photos of both of my granddaughter's class photos.  This is Jenna.  Oh how I miss them!

Here is Paige.  She is a smiley kid.  My girls are so sweet!   

Dayle just brought in the mail and what did I see?  But a package from the lovely and generous Robin - from the blog My Nest of Yarn and Buttons.  It's a beautiful printed kitchen towel - mine has Nasturtiums on it and now I want some!  Thank you dear Robin, you're the sweetest friend!

Here is a closeup of the design.  Love it and it goes with my yellow walls!  :-)

I'm heading into the kitchen for leftover BBQ for lunch.  Want to join me?  
((hugs)), Teresa :-) 


  1. We had BBQ chicken last night for dinner, and I had it for lunch today too! It was so good this time -- tender and juicy. Mmm! Your girls are so sweet-looking. Their pictures are great!
