~*While Waiting For The Bus Today*~

Hello Dear Friends! While waiting for the school bus today... Trinity did a little bouncing...

This is the last week of the 2008-2009 school year! Gosh it went FAST!

After the bus left, I decided to take stroll around the yard. We have several blooms...

a few old~fashioned iris

Our small goldfish pond has a puncture in it ~ so no fish right now until we figure out what to do with it... however, the water iris that my SIL, Robin, gave me last year popped today!

A few peonies ~ just in time for Memorial Day!

The roses my Mom gave me last year have started to bloom too! So pretty!

Crafting? Yes, I have been crafting... quite a bit really. BUT... after mowing yesterday ~ with Tony on the rider and me with the push mower ~ I set out with the trimmers and hit the trees. This is the row of trees (or would it be rows?) we have along the front of our home. They WERE so over~grown and such a nuisance when it came to mowing. I'm really not sure Tony was ready for me to do this... but once I started trimming I just couldn't stop. The whole escapade took about 6 hours ~ pruning and clean up! Nice & neat now! Mowing next time won't take so long & won't interfere with my crafting as much.

Oh... and crafting... well, these are just a FEW of the UFOs (unfinished objects) going right now. This is just my needle punch pile. I also have a LARGE cross stitch pile and several rug hooking piles! BUT... no mowing today... just CRAFTING!

Wishing you all many warm smiles,


  1. Your flowers and trees are beautiful!
    Have a great day.

  2. Beautiful flowers and trees!
