~*A Very Enjoyable Day*~

Hello Dear Friends! We had a very enjoyable day today! With Trinity out of school for the summer, it has been tricky finding things to fill his days. We have signed up for lots of activities at the library, bought summer movie passes, scheduled a few classes at the local Arts Council, began practice for T-Ball, and hope to do Vacation Bible School... but it seems just having his best friend over for a visit now and then is GREAT too! Plus... it gives Mom some crafting time! While the boys played, I enjoyed the shade under the Elms for a little hooking...

I looked up now and then to see what the boys were up to...

The trampoline is one of their favorite spots. When they werent' jumping here, they were driving the Tonka trucks over the dirt pile in the back or taking turns riding Trinity's bike around the go kart track. They really can be a hoot to watch! They both are so full of energy and imagination!

On a stitchin' note... I received an email from Nikki (no blog) with a photo of her latest cross stitch. Nikki just recently purchased a new home & is busy making some wonderful ditties to decorate with. She stitched up the ~*Symple Scissor FOB*~ chart & did a super job on it! I've sent her a return email asking to see the final finish too. We just gotta see the finished pillow, don't ya think?

Thank you, Nikki, for stitching and sharing!

The day is drawing near an end here... guess it is time to find my pillow.

Wishing you all warm smiles,



  1. Glad you enjoyed your day. Looks as though the boys had a wonderful time, also. Your rug is looking so nice and prim. Your work is always a pleasure to look at!

  2. Very nice stitchery that Nikki did...I hope you both have a great summer!

  3. How GREAT is it to heat about kids that LOVE to play OUTSIDE?!?!?!? Sounds like the boys were having a ball just enjoying being kids! :-) Your kitty hooked mat is looking SUPER! Methinks your an excellent photographer too! Nice composition and balance in the pic. Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!

  4. I so enjoyed this post. I bet your summer will be magical and fun. I so remember trying to keep kids engaged all summer. Whew! Your hooking looks very interesting. Have a great day! :)

  5. Looks like they are having a wonderful time. We still have about 5 more days then they will be free for the summer. Dianntha

  6. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a warm summer day. They get out of school early, kids here have to wait till the middle of June.


  7. OH, I love the kitty rug already!! How nice to sit outside and work. Perfect
