This and That

I hope you had a lovely Holiday weekend.
I always think about my Daddy.
He is buried in the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
When I lived in New Mexico, I would visit around Memorial Day.

Memorial Day

I have my patriotic decorations out.
They'll stay up until after the 4th of July.

Memorial Day

I do love Quirky!
The cat and owl vases are from the West Elm Fairy Tale collection.
Perfect for a cat and owl lover!

Quirky Vases

I finished knitting a shawl.
It is light weight from Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball.


And, I'm all set for my summer hibernation.
(I hibernate because of the heat.)
I have plenty of yarn! 
I found the pattern for the shawl in Knit Simple Holiday 2017 magazine.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

This and That

It was one of those "this and that" weeks.
Heat records have been set all week.
It's not even UGHust! 

The last Rice U baseball home series has come and gone.
I found these at the grocery and thought they'd be fun at the tailgate.
They were!

Blast From The Past

Mother's Day with the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.
I do love Orbit and all his shenanigans.
He must be one of the best major league baseball mascots.


Lots blooming in Musashi's Garden.

I order all my daylilies from Oakes.
I've been very pleased with the plants and the service.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Tra La! It's May!

It's the magical month of May.

I couldn't resist a lovely May Day bouquet.

May Day

I have several pots of Lantana blooming in
Musashi's Garden.
I hope the butterflies like them as much as I do!


The crocosmia blooming came as a surprise.
I didn't see the plant at all last year.


Another amaryllis is blooming, too.


May also means that I start preparing
for my six month summer hibernation!
I have plenty of yarn for projects.
Never too early to start holiday gifts!

It's already hot and humid.
Smoothies are definitely in order.

It's also time to think about hurricane supplies.
I've started loading up on water
and will think about what canned goods I might like.
