Storms then sun..........

I got some treasures in the mail today!  Actually, supplies to aid my habit of crafting.  This was all for Stitch Maynia and/or my cross stitch addiction.  Some project bags since I mostly use Ziplocks! LOL!  These I got on 123 Stitch and they were reasonably priced.                
More floss bags.........
I am planning on cross stitching on the 3 gingham mesh bags I got from Fat Quarter Shop.  I am going to cross-stitch one of these windows............. it is from my Cath Kidson Stitching book....... 
just a start on the window frame.......
I didn't take a walk today because it stormed all morning and by the time the sun came out, it was hot and humid so I passed!  When it starts getting hot and humid I go for my walk early in the morning.
 I made the Veggie Cassola dish that I love so much!  Supper will be the last of the fish sticks, sweet potato, and the roasted vegetable dish.
 That's all for today!  I hope you are all staying well, safe, and happy!
Happy Trails!!!

All my progress yesterday and today.....nada!

I am so tired out today I just got the minimal done.  I have been dragging all day.  I am hitting the sack early tonight.  I did finish a book; the first one in the Dr. Nightingale mystery series about a veterinarian.  I'll be ordering more as it was really good!
I started this mystery; the 3rd book in the China Bayles series by Susan Wittig Albert...........China owns an herbal shop..........
I received a belated Mother's Day package in the mail, from my daughter, full of goodies!  I hope I remember them all!
Some favorite cookies of mine..............
a new hummingbird feeder!
Some Lysol wipes which I transferred to this container.  I have not been able to get any so I really appreciated these!
These are really neat.............silicone pie edgers so your edges don't burn!  So much easier than the old foil edging and no waste of foil......
This is not for me but for the girls....Grace and Miss Peeps.  It has a USB cable so I can charge it on the pc.  It's tail goes back and forth and Miss Peeps loves it!  Grace, not so much.  It's hysterical!
As for Stitch Maynia Day #26 I started this little house ornament from my friend, Helen Philipps, Cross Stitch Keepsakes book.........
I didn't get very far........the door is pink using the color she recommended but the picture looks red so I think I will tear it out and use a  nice bright red......
I did some cleaning....not too much....I didn't want to overdo it! LOL!  I also picked up my prescriptions at the pharmacy and that was about it.  Again, it was supposed to rain but nada!
Take care, stay safe, and.........
Happy Trails!!!

Memorial Day!!!


and..............
It was supposed to storm yesterday and today but per usual...the sky is blue and the sun is shining!  I don't mind as I am back to making sun plans and rain plans so either way I am good to go!  Because it was going to be in the  80's I got out early and took my walk.  I then sprayed poison ivy, took down some poisonous vines climbing up the brick on my house, and transplanted my cherry tomato plants.   I purposely use my tomato cages upside down when I plant in containers....it's easier.   These are the tomatoes I grew from seed.  The cherry tomatoes are the biggest plants so far, go figure?
I think I need to move them.........
 I also planted some basil and some bush beans......
 My hose broke so I am back to watering the old fashioned way but I am going to need a couple more hoses for this summer. 
The clematis is doing great since I transplanted them last year..........
I burned an entire box full of paper.  I had way too much to shred...........
I also got some solar lights that I put on my front porch railing...........they work really well and weren't that expensive...........I'll have to take a picture at night and show you.........
This is my Stitch Maynia Day #25 pattern.....a free pattern from Glory Bee.....she has some nice ones.
I've been outside most of the day and dirty so I didn't do much so far...........
I tried starting the Habitation Shawl and I have already run into trouble....it's an I-Cord cast on?  I got the first instructions fine and there is an itty-bitty 3 stitch i-cord but then I do not understand her next directions so I will be watching some YouTube videos before I go any further......live and learn...hopefully!
That's all for today folks.  I'm going to finish the last "load" of burning and then come in and close the windows, turn on the AC, change my sheets, and take a bath!   
Happy Trails!!!
