Off my camera

I'm glad I pull out the camera at least once a day, because how the heck else would I remember what's been going on?
I'm getting a handful of zinnias every few days.  I'll take what I can get!

I grew these!  Growing things is fun!

When my mom and I went to my daughter's on Sunday-we all got pumkin spice lattes.  (My mom paid-thanks, Mom!)

Sunset, on the way home from Hoper's.
Sewing fleece on the floor!

My daughter asked me to make a Philadelphia Phillies fleece blanket for her friend-a Phillie fan.  She has a queen sized bed, so this blanket is huge!  I ordered six yards of Phillies fabric and six yards of navy blue fabric, then I cut each piece in two lengthwise and then sewed them together widthwise to make it wider.  (Hmmmm-does that make sense?)  Anyhow, I cut and tied the fabrics together last Saturday afternoon. I also made her a scarf from a piece of fleece that I had trimmed off.  (I was just about to pitch it in the garbage, when I thought-hey, this can be a scarf!)  I just cut and knotted fringe on both ends of the scarf-shaped scrap.  It was kind of a joke, but she ended up loving it!

My neighbor called me and told me not to let Rocco out because there was a skunk in our yard!
He was out there for about an hour searching for grubs (I think) in the grass.

             While waiting for the Pepe Le Pew to move into the sunlight, I took pictures of the toy soldiers on our deck posts.    

I was at my sister's house yesterday and this is more of her pretty Fiestaware!
I hope everybody has a great weekend!

Those peppers and tomatoes sure look yummy!!! I told Jodie to bring me in a Fiesta mug for me to use at school because they look so pretty. I get to have lunch with her all week. Beautiful fleece throw!! Glad Rocco didn't do what my dumb dog did one time, run up to the skunk and stick her nose in its butt, yup, get out the tomato juice!! Starbucks sounds so good. I hear there's a good International Delights pumpkin spice creamer. I'm gonna have to try that one. I don't think I'll get a chance to get to a Starbucks so that will have to do for now. Love all your pix!
