We have been getting regular rains this summer and the flowers are looking better than we’ve seen them look for several seasons.
See all these bags of snacks? These are all for Susannah because she’s so special. Have you ever seen a goat eat a pretzel rod without it ever leaving her mouth or dropping part of it? I hadn’t either but here she is with a pretzel rod in her mouth and it will disappear one bite at a time. Photo is blurry because she was so excited to eat one of her favorite snacks – ha!
Mom’s sister, Blanche, visited with her daughter, Jill, and Ernie thought it would be great to sit on Blanche’s lap. Of course Blanche didn’t really appreciate it – isn’t that always the way? The cats bother those who aren’t cat lovers – he could have sat on MY lap!
And here’s the screened porch where I love to sit and read, drink coffee, relax and enjoy the scenery. It was brought to my attention that I’ve never shown a picture.
I am working with a new fabric line called Dogma by David Hearn. The quilt looks much more complicated than it really is due to the wild fabric but I love it. I should have it finished to show you next week and yes, we’ll be kitting it up.
This weekend is Gold Rush Days in Rochester, MN and Oronoco – I hope to drive up on Friday for a long day of antique shopping.
There is a huge hole in our household where Benjie lived and I catch myself looking for him many times a day. Thanks for all the condolences you sent – I know that so many of you know how I’m feeling.
