This morning I decided to make my morning prettier with a breakfast feast on the back patio. My grandmother used to do this in Oklahoma when I was a kid and it always made breakfast feel like a treat.

Bounty from the garden

This is the first cutting of zinias this summer. I love that they are so bright and they thrive in the Texas Heat.

On the slate this weekend: Some yardwork, garden work – weeding. Grilling out this evening. And working on baby blanket for my coming niece and learning to knit socks. Also going tto tackle the ruffle shirt tutorial from Craftzine.  Pictures to come tonight on these projects.



Mama Plant

10 May

Earlier this year I had the insane idea to sell my house that I adore. The house was listed all of about six weeks of me feeling sad before I came to my senses. So when I called the realtor and cancelled my contract and joyfully began moving in my pictures and boxes I noticed this plant needed to be repotted.

I gave the babies away to my neighbors to celebrate “We’re not moving day”.

And then we made pizza and I had a glass of my friend Car don Aye and all was right in the world again.
