Hello! How are you this fine weekend? We're just ambling along, taking it easy, helping Dayle mend from his surgery. I took the boys out for a drive-thru burger and milkshake and when we arrived home I went to pick some Dahlias and Caleb went with me. I had him pull up the spent spinach plants and give them to the chickens and when he did that we both saw a massive zucchini which had been hidden by the spinach. I gave him my Swiss Army knife to cut the zuke and here he is with it. :-) Kristi came to visit us and bring some things and she harvested some potatoes, green beans and more zucchini for us. Our carrots were a bust. So, she pulled them up too. I am thinking I'll make a potato salad with our cute spuds. I made homemade burritos for the boys and us on Saturday. They were a hit.
My little miniature red and white striped rose is in bloom. I googled and it might be called "Gigi". I adore it as the bloom is so tiny and perfect. About the diameter of a quarter.
Success.. all six fish in one shot.
My bouquet that I picked, 2 purple pom poms, a big lovely white and pink dahlia and a blood red rose.
I am close to finishing Paige's lap blanket.. whew. I will finish today and get it shipped to her and hopefully it will arrive in Ohio prior to her birthday. The border edging will be a simple double shell. First lavender and then finishing off with pink.
Is there anything better than finishing a project?
I just snapped this to show you the finished part, 2 1/2 more sides to go.
Dayle brought this rose bud in for me when he was outside yesterday. It smells wonderful. Double Delight.
It gets so nice and reddish pink tipped when it gets good sun.
It's going to be a hot one today. 90 deg. F. Not a cloud in the sky and it's a beautiful blue. The boys are still here and are helping out with chores. They are also getting lots of rest and free time so they're enjoying that. Summer is fleeting. School will start soon enough. The last I heard it will be two days of in school learning and 2 days at home with online learning.
I hope your week is a good one. Any fun plans?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
