Sunday In Pictures

You probably noticed I took a blogging break.
I think it did me good.
In the mean time I learned how to needle felt.
(very therapeutic jabbing things with a needle, lol)
I hope to have a small animal for each grandchild for Christmas.

My 10 year old niece Anna,
hung with me a few days.
She learned how to needle felt too.

My wine glass rack serves double
 duty in the summer :-)
Yarrow flowers are drying for
dried flower arrangements.
The leaves have already been dried
as a medicinal herb.

Remember this mysterious track in the garden?

Ya, well, .....we figured it out.
My son's size 13 Nike's.
The rain had washed away the front part
 of the track just leaving the heel imprint.
Mystery solved.  :-)

The grandkids had a great time
at our 4th of July party. did the adults.  I brought out my
gallon of homemade apple wine.  With
a splash of pineapple vodka in it I
must say YUM :-)

I think Ryan had a smile on his face all night.
It was so hot...the kids had a water fight all
evening until just before the fireworks started.

All the kids got a glow light flashlight
with a whistle on the end.  I found them in the
camping supply section of Wal-Mart.
They were a huge hit....and also a little ear splitting :-)

Posts will still be limited for a while, I'll try to keep some pictures coming...and...get around to reading your posts!

It seems as when summer comes rolling around we all tend to neglect our blogs and blog reading for a know, for LIFE! :)

We'll still be here when you get back :)

Posts will be limited?? What!? Are you busy or something?? ;o}

I think all of us hit a time (especially during the summer) when something has to give and, as you say, maybe a little blogging break is a good thing.

Your little animals for the kids at Christmas are cute as could be. Have fun making them.

Blog when it feels right. We'll be here!
