No Matter How You Slice it

It is hot and humid today one way I pamper myself is to iron my pillow
cases and my favorite night gown with rose linen spray.
I am planning on taking a nice cool shower and jumping into bed early tonight.

I got a new book from amazon this week. I am obsessed with vintage campers.
I want one but it is not in the budget right now but a girl can dream.

we went to a craft fair, there was a guy selling wooden spoons and knives.
I had never seen a wooden knife before so I bought it. It is made out of birch and
I thought it would look nice with homemade jam as a gift. Husband was not that happy
I paid for that he said I can make them you know. Sooo I guess there will be more.

Dump picking has been very slim but I did find this cute little lady bug
she still has her friction wheels under her.
***
We were on the road at 4:30 this morning headed into Boston for a 5 hour infusion for David.
It is something that boosts his immune system just part of the plan.
The Dr is happy with his progress but still a long day.

I have never thought to iron my pillowcases, but then again I don't always make my bed in the morning either. I'm Oscar and my husband is Felix!!! Hope the drive to and from Boston goes smoothly and David infusion goes smooth as well.

My Cathy, the ladybug is a great find, it looks tin plate - is it? If so I would think it's worth quite a bit, they certainly are in the UK.

Home made jam with a home made knife - what a great gift :o)

I agree totally with your quote for the day.

So if David makes the knives do you have to make the jam? Love the lavender spray too and I hope all goes well for David in Boston. Take care!

Glad David is getting a 'boost' and hope his recovery exceeds the speed of light!

Cute Ladybug; I have hooked some ladybugs and they sold and that has inspired me to want to hook a couple more.

Yes.The humidty this year has been stronger than usual. A nice cool bath and fresh linens sounds divine! The little lady bug was a great find! Love the quote... so many people try to define themselves what what they own, rather than who they are... Glad that David is doing well! :-)

Oh Miss Baby is getting so big, I just love her little pigtails. She is just precious! With this hot humid weather, I have been changing my bed linens every few days, I love the crispness that only line dried sheets can provide, along with the clean fresh air fragrance. Glad to read that David continues to do well. Blessings, Julie.

Long day for you two--glad the infusion helps David. I like your last quote--so true.

I think I've only ironed my bed linens twice! I commend you! I just spritz them with a lavender water now . . . it's easy & smells good!

Happy to hear David continues to improve!

Great news about David !! It's nice to hear the treatment helps.
You have some great finds and I love the idea of sprinkling laundry with rose spray.
Have a great day.
