I hope you all had a wonderful 4th it was very quiet here just husband and I we are trying so hard to stay healthy but it is getting the best of him. We need to get out a bit more.
Husband made me this little house for my porch so sweet.
I went to the farm stand early for some local strawberries. There is nothing like local strawberries. The ones shipped in the grocery store taste like the box they came in. I made strawberry ice cream just waiting for it to harden.
I for some reason wanted pie. So I made a pie now it takes us a long time to eat a pie but I don't care I love pie!!! I tried a new crust recipe I found on a blog. Nope! back to King Arthur Flour's recipe.
Our house guest is leaving tomorrow. She is very sweet and well behaved. . She likes to lay on the footstool while I am working on my rug. We are walking 3 miles every morning and about 1/2 after dinner she loves it!
We gave her her dinner but she could not pull herself from our big window in the kitchen that looks down into our yard. And this was why! That deer did not care one bit about that dog growling at her from the open window. Husband went out because we thought something may be wrong with her but when he got with in 5 feet of her she jumped up and left she was fine. I do not want her here she can go through a garden in a night.
I worked hard in my gardens this spring and they are starting to show my hard work. My hollyhocks are just wonderful.
I have a whole row of fairy roses and they are in good form they will bloom until we have a hard frost.
I have had such a hard time growing zucchinis, this year I put them in a pot and voila I am going to have zucchinis! That is just one plant!
I had an old farm tool that the handles rotted off. Husband replace them and oh do I love it! I put it under the trees where it is hard to grown anything.
I am on the border of my large rug. I am not sure if I have enough wool so I am backing into it. I put an extra row of background around and then two rows of black. now I am filling in the plaid from the bottom up evenly all the way around.
I want to finish this rug but I will be sad not to work on it anymore.
We had several days of rain which we badly needed and then the weather has been warm but not to bad. We could use some more rain.
I loved all the comments on my rug thank you for helping my ego to grown lol
Have a wonderful week!
