My grandson, TNT
yep, he's dynamite,
made the honor roll!
Woo Hoo!
There he is:

He told us that since
he has to behave in public because he is a
reflection of us,
we had to do the same.

Woo! Hoo!

We were very well behaved.

Happy Pink Day

I know I've been remiss,
but I thought you ladies
would like:

Favorite Quote of the Week!

"I put it out to the universe . . .

and pick it up at a garage sale."
                                          a gal buying an elliptical machine

Loved it!

I'm linking with Beverly
things are looking pretty scary around there
but still, head over and check it out.

New Project on the Needles

My daughter
asked me again
to knit a scarf.

Remember the last one?
I don't think I'll ever forget.
I finished, but whew!

So this time I decided what pattern to use.

 The magazine called it, "A bit French"

So of course, I was in.

I can't wait to finish and show you.

I might just have to make myself one too!

The Hand

My two grandsons

having a disagreement
in the back seat of the car.

Said Grandson #1

Talk to the hand.

Grandson #2 said, 
without missing a beat . . .

"Hello hand."

Don't you love it!

I'm Missing

The sweet summer days at the beach,

Summer just raced by.

I know it's fall,
but it's still warm here in Arizona.
Perhaps I can still get in a day at the zoo.

What are you missing right now?

Loose Teas, I'm on my way.

I'm so very excited.
I know I haven't spoken of them in a while
but I'm heading over to visit 
my favorite tea shop!
It's in Monrovia, California.
I'm craving this:

and maybe these!

Friend's Swap 2011

Lookie! lookie!
I sent:

Some fabulous fabric and fancies

Roman Provence Tea
with an
Iced tea Tumbler

Some eggs
to put into
A felted nest.
(I'm so pleased my partner loved nests - 
it gave me an excuse to make one.)
I didn't get any photos of:
the  delicious delights.
(Trust me they were yummy.)
Or, I can't believe it,
the shawl I knit.

Friends Swap

We were a bit behind,
my partner and I,
but the package is on its way.

I can't wait to show you what
is in each of them.
But for now you'll have to wait . . .

Hurry postman!
So I can share!
