Taking A Blogging Break

                        Thought I would take  a bit of a break from Blogging. All fine here, just the fun of warm weather and so much going on. It takes me a good part of the day just to water an take care of all my flowers. HA. Then there is Kitty, in and out it seems every few minutes. And Richard and all the kids and our friends that we want to have down for summer food etc. Sooo a bit of  time off. Back Soon.

Some Books That I just Read

                            These were all pretty good. I still have a good size pile to read. But that's a good thing. Hate to be without a book to read.
                Hot here the last few days. Going to pick up my daughter pretty soon and get groceries. Look for something good to cook on the grill.

Something Good In the Mail

                     My sister in law and Brother sent this to me. ISN'T IT CUTE? I think I will plant an ivy in it. I will get a small pot that fits in there and can't be seen, and the ivy can grow out the spout and around the handle.

Great weather for all my flowers etc.

                                 Everything I planted or bought is really doing good this year. A good amount of rain and sun. And my trusty watering can. This is a little corner of my back deck.
                     Going out to Amish country this Sat. My daughter and son in law have a cabin out there. Most of the family will be going. Kind of a Father's Day event. Us girls will probably do a little Amish shopping.  Then lots of good food back at the cabin.
      Been reading a lot as usual. I will post a  picture soon of some of the books I have been reading.
        O'k I'm going now.

Kitty on the Hunt etc.

                       Kitty loves being outside, chases anything that moves.  Right now she is laying here on the desk helping me type as usual.
              Warm and windy today. I made a pineapple upside down cake this morning. will probably have hot dogs and salad for dinner.
       Been reading an old Taylor Caldwell  book, " A Prologue To Love". She wrote a lot of good books. Then I have about six other books on my table waiting to be read.
         So windy the last few days that I go out and water all my plants at least twice a day. But that's OK I love being outside. I was out at six this morning, so nice out then, I love the mornings.
     Nothing else new, kids are in and out as usual, Richard's cousin Jack comes down almost every Sunday for a visit. In fact I just gave him a piece of cake. So ok I'm going now.

                           I didn't make these, they were made by a friend a long time ago. Always thought it was a cute way to use buttons.
                      On my way down to stare at the freezer and decide what to make for dinner . Looks like we looking at summer weather, been pretty cool these last couple of weeks.  So maybe something for the grill would be a good idea.
       Reading a lot as usual, so many books out there!!!  Well off to take everything off the bed and flip the mattress, my back has been acting up and that usually means time to turn the mattress. Kitty is sitting here trying  to help me type, she is not to good at it. She stands on the keys then I have to make corrections.

China Cupboard.

                            This is a collection of things from family and from thrift stores. The cups and saucers were given to me as I was growing up. My Aunt Fern, who was my Grandma's sister always gave me a cup and saucer for my Birthday. I like that old valentine Box on top, its pretty old. The three old pitchers were made in Germany.
        Been cool here this week, next week looks like summer, looking forward to that!

Beautiful Doll From Becky

                           My Mail Day today was pretty exciting. A big box with this beautiful doll waiting inside. She said she had a nice trip here but is glad to be out of the box.  Isn't she pretty, and because the Doll is from Becky, I will name her Becky.  She is holding a muff and you can't see it but a full slip under the dress, which is why the dress stands out so nice. And of course her hooded cape.
         Thank you Becky, what a nice gift.
