Lucy the Puggle Dog and I went on a walk last night to checkout the blackberry status in our neighborhood. Last year the HOA chopped down our main supply of blackberry bushes down by the park because they were an eyesore. 🙁 So this year we have to do a little hunting if we want to collect enough berries for pies and jam. BOOO! I posted a little video of the Amazing Lucy Puggle on YouTube if you want to see. 😉
Although if Lucy has anything to do with it she’ll be keeping them all. So far 4 plush toys have mysteriously disappeared from The Girls donation box. 😉
A giant box of wool arrived yesterday. 13 yards to be exact. I figure it’s plenty to keep me busy and out of trouble through the end of the year. Plus I have a feeling I’ll be needing some more area rugs soon… but more about that a bit later. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I tried my hand at cross stitch but I think I’m just going to go ahead and throw in the towel. I fear if I don’t stop now I will end up with crippled hands and blind. I think primitive samplers a beautiful, I really do, and I applaud anyone who has the patience to finish one but I just don’t think I’m cut out for it. I could never hack in it Victorian times that’s for sure.
And last but not least, dinner. Holy cow man, are you on vegetable overload lately? Every night around here lately is stir fry night. The HH probably thinks I’ve gone mad. It’s amazing he still eats the stuff.
Ahh summer. Isn’t it grand?
How about you, what have you been up to lately? Have you ever tried cross stitch before? Did you finish it? Can you still see?
