Next, look at these skies. They are a welcome sight after a month of brown sky. Last night there was a very strong smell of smoke in the air before we went to bed but it was gone this morning.
Dennis & I have matching Lazyboy rocker/recliners that are 25 years old. They are just starting to show wear, but we hope to get a few more years out of them. On my side table I have lotion, a cup with some of my most used bamboo straight knitting needles and some of my crochet hooks and pens. A small votive holder that I use for trash, (scraps of yarn, thread, etc.) Also some gold bond lotion and lip balm made by Debra, "Araignee" on my sidebar. There is a little dish with progress keepers, paper clips, tape measure, etc. Next to that are my scissors. Then I have a notepad, devotion book and my daily planner. There is a shelf underneath that holds my Bible and prayer notebook where I keep track of everyone I want to pray for every day. Ladies, when I tell you I will pray for you, your name goes in this book and I really DO pray for you. I usually have a book or two that I'm reading too, as well as any magazines that have arrived and are waiting to be read.
In front of the table is my knitting basket where I keep my current projects. Right now there is a bag with my current pair of socks and the Zick Zack scarf I'm working on. That sweet little camper project bag was a gift from Kris at "Simplify" on my sidebar. She is one talented quilter, knitter, gardener and can do just about anything. :-)
All three animals were in bed with us the other morning. Only Amelia actually sleeps with us but they all join us in the morning when we wake up. I think the cats really miss us when we're at the lake. We only have one more month there before we have to close up for the season.
And the last picture is sweet little Piper at a fly-in last Sunday in Fremont, NE. Notice her shirt! Brad got it at a fly-in last month, I think it was in Minnesota, but I'm not sure. Obviously there was a car show going on too. Piper is loving kindergarten and her teacher.
I hope you all enjoy the long holiday weekend if you're here in the U.S., but I hope you have a lovely weekend no matter where you are.
Because we are having an anniversary and a wedding this weekend, this Bible verse comes to mind, but it's applicable to each one of us isn't it?
"Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."
1 Corinthians 1:4-5
Much love and many blessings,
