Summer, finally!

Summer has finally come. We've had a very wet June and I still haven't laid out the soaker hoses! The rains have been coming every few days, so I will procrastinate for as long as I can (especially after last years' $300 water bill!). Here is part of my garden with lavender (now pretty much done blooming), herbs, and some vegetables. I love mixing flowers and vegetables.

I just had to post a picture of this hanging basket. This picture does not do it justice. I love the way it greets me at the front door along with the hydrangeas!

These grapevines are on the side of our house and all the way down our long driveway. The fence they are "hanging" on is so old and ready to fall. Dh is wanting to remove this particular row so that he can back his truck into the backyard. He's not fond of concord grapes like the rest of us are!

As far as knitting - haven't done much. This pregnancy is wiping me out. I'm okay in the morning and do as much as I can then and then just before noon, it's all downhill. Hopefully things will improve as I get into the 2nd trimester. I'm now 11 wks pregnant.


My daughter and I are still moving along on our knitting sampler (mine is on the left and my daughter's is on the right). I really enjoyed the two-color knitting using different color in each hand. The duplicate stitch is so easy and added a lot. You can see the navy in mine. We are about 90% done. This has been a great project and I highly recommend it.


Wow - it's been a while. I think things are finally settling down around here. A few wks ago my whole family got the stomach bug. My 2 little guys were vomitting for almost a week. I am rarely sick, but felt awful. Then it dawned on me . . . . could I be preg*&@#$?

Yup - Pregnant! My dh was away on business and I didn't want to tell him over the phone, so I put this Altoid box in his pillow when he returned. Of course he noticed the box right away, but thought one of the kids were playing a joke on him and started to put it on his dresser. I told him to open it up - maybe there was a note or something. He opened and found the pregnancy test. He was thrilled with the news.
