Well it’s that time again! I do hope that you enjoy this new newsletter format. Yes, it has had some glitches and some bugs but I think you have more access to more information now and you can even search for the topic of your choice! Please let me know what you think of it. I really am interested to know your thoughts.
It has been a busy summer for me. It seems like the days just fly by. I am always doing something it seems but that is a good thing. I am not a good sitter at all and even if I am sitting then my hands are busy knitting or crocheting. Right now I have a sweater for a baby boy on my knitting needles and three different afghans in different stages on my crochet hook and in addition I try to knit a couple of dishcloths or face cloths every week. Wow, it kind of makes me tire to read that. I also take a two to three mile walk in the mornings (weather permitting) before I start my work day. It clears out the cobwebs from my brain and then I know I can relax and I won’t have to do it at the end of my day when I rarely feel like doing it.
We just celebrated Independence day here. I spent the day with my daughter, son-in-law and grandsons. I had a great time. We ate steamed crabs on the patio and enjoyed the sun and the breeze. It doesn’t get much better than that for me unless I had my son, his wife and my granddaughters there too.
There is a Grey Jay next in the bush just outside my kitchen window. There were three or four little blue eggs in it and before I knew it there was a mama sitting on those eggs and then in quick progression there was a papa bird too and some hungry mouths waiting to be fed. I really enjoy watching the birds. We had a terrible thunderstorm late this afternoon and I was worried that the poor baby birds would drown. I looked into the next and there was mama with her wings spread over her babies to keep them warm and dry. What we mothers won’t do for out little ones eh?
I hope you have all been well and are enjoying the summer months and that you got to celebrate whatever holiday it is that you celebrate during the summer months!
Until next time, take care of you…and anyone else who needs your help.
