Happy Wednesday everyone. After 4 1/2 straight days of constant rain I woke up this morning to blue, blue skies and a promise of almost 70° today. Since it’s been in the 50s for the last four days that would be very welcome.
The socks are finished and are almost exactly matching. That turquoise stripe in the middle of the heel turn made things a little wonky, but I don’t think anyone will notice.
I started a corner to corner blanket yesterday. The yarn I’m using is lion brand, ice cream big scoop, in the strawberry colorway.
This morning on my walk with Chloe I spotted a blooming peony bush. If you look closely you will be able to see four bees busily working inside the bloom. I guess since they’ve been inside for four days because of the rain they have to be extra busy today and share the blossoms!
I thought I might show you the end tables on either end of the sofa in the trailer. I love having a little space to decorate with some of my favorite things.
The photo in the front below was the last family vacation we all took before the kids started moving out. It was to the Oregon coast which was our favorite place to go camping when the kids were growing up.
Yesterday Piper and I were writing back-and-forth to each other on messenger when she sent me this photo.
So I sent her this one back! We have so much fun writing to each other and she sends me little videos too.
Every year for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day we get a photo of her with this chalkboard with the appropriate caption. She came up with this pose herself for this year‘s Mother’s Day photo! Pretty smart for a seven-year-old. When I asked her about the picture, she told me it was because of COVID-19. It’s too bad that little kids have to even know about such a thing.
I hope that you are all healthy and able to enjoy the summertime weather. So far we’ve been having more of a late winter early spring but I think it’s getting ready to change. Some years our summer doesn’t truly start here until the Fourth of July and this may be one of those years.
The above photo is the view during the day and below is sunset from Alex and Tara’s new apartment in London. Isn’t it a beautiful view? I love the houses and all of the trees. I just had a nice long visit a few minutes ago on FaceTime with him and Tara. I am so grateful for technology.
Alex is still in quarantine there for another week or so. With a view like this I could be in quarantine very easily!
I’m praying you will all have a wonderful day
