|they are like round cups|
The bell peppers are leafing out finally

We've had some butterflies this year, yea! but also a lot of flies who seem hell bent on coming in the house.
....the possession of google... for some reason they sent
out 25 posts of mine at once to people... I've been hearing people say
they thought I disappeared. Let me just mention here, my MO is to post
on Thursdays ( to remind me there are some good things still happening)
and Saturday creativity round up with all the things that help me
express myself in art.
|the painted "mark making" banner, with a silk flower and some beading|
finished up the silk binding on my circles quilt, as well as lots of beading... I love beads (shiny sparkly)and putting them on a quilt. I worked on the mark making banner too, adding stitching, silk hexies, and beads.
|prompt is spinner, on an index card|
Our kitchen patio slider was making that annoying crunchy sound and hard to slide. I looked up how to fix that on youtube... we vacuumed, washed with detergent, dried, sprayed with silicon and the big help was to look for the little holes under the runner to spray with silicon... ours had little covers which popped off. It's not like new but I can open and close it myself now.
There was another golden age lecture on zoom from the Newport Historical society... and it helps us feel connected to the east coast which we love
summertime and a pool party is the perfect thing to do!reading
audio, just finished this totally charming story of the life of a dress...now I on hold for her other two books at the library. When I find a fun author I want to read all their books!
also finished this fun book on audio... and seeking her other books too
now listening to this one while in studio, it's nearing the end of her series so far
reading on ebook, and loving this series about a family and friends in Nantucket. Whew not a murder mystery!
TV is a big disappointment at the moment, thank goodness for Netflix, youtube, Acorn. DH and I like to have lunch together and are watching a show about expats buying and rehabbing chateaux in France (escape to the chateau DIY) ... this is the youtube trailer
a new I Like segment
Each week will be a different prompt of likes, this week it's a kitchen tool that does what it's paid for... one that kind of surprised you that works great and you reach for often.. It's nice when something turns out to work perfectly, isn't it?
Mine is the plastic scraper (from Amazon) so useful we now have three! We use them not only to scrape dough for bread, but batter, and to pick up and carry chopped vege to the pan.
the other one for me is these little grabbers... so cute and useful (also from amazon) I use them to sort out pickles or chile peppers, but also to grab sausages and put things away in tupperware, or grab something messy or hot. My fave is to watch dh's big hands using them!
No affiliation with source, just so you can see them... lots of people sell them.
whew! It's been hot especially when I'm wearing this black fur coat! I've enjoyed playing under this tree lately, with Daddy running over to steal my ring toy, while I flip to my back and arm wrestle him.
Heh heh, I've got four arms to his two, and mine are mighty poodle arms!
here's a little video mama made since our lives are so thrilling...
whew, that's thirsty work, I'd better go back to the porch Dad...
it's shady and we can still play the other new game Mama invented... I'll tell you about that next week
