I've been busy!
I'm sorry that I haven't posted for so long, but I've been busy! Here is a month in my life...which includes a bit of everything! My dear better half enjoys ripping things apart, and luckily he is quite adept at putting them back together. Our barn windows had probably been broken and crooked for 50 years, so he fixed them. First he took off the entire top side of the barn. Then he framed out the windows.
And as I said he knows how to put things back together with a fresh look! My role in this is to keep a cold beer in his hand and keep the phone handy in case he falls off the roof or
does damage to an important body part!
We attended the wedding of our friend Bob and his new bride Evelyn. They were both recently widowed, and we think they compliment each other quite well. It was a quiet and lovely ceremony.
Living quite near the coast gives me the chance to see the ocean every day at work, and there are certain places that those dreaded tourists haven't discovered yet. Here is one of them, but I can't tell you where it is other than the town of Kittery Maine. Lovely view, isn't it?
We celebrated the 14th birthday of our wonderful dog Brutus. He still does pretty well, although he has lost his hearing and his legs just don't work so well all the time. We used to let him run in the fields but since he can't hear us calling him back he has to stay on a lead now.
His name is tough but he's our loving, ever loyal and non-judgemental baby.
Some other friends arrived from Tennessee for a couple of weeks. Steve and Rosie are such fun! They come up each year and make our cabin their home. We all went to a camp and had a big lobster bake with some friends. It was a relaxing gathering full of laughter.
I also spent some time in my "Gardens of Weedin". I adore my gardens but seldom have them all looking nice at the same time. My lupine looked really nice this year.
We also attended another wedding. It was for AnnMarie and Eric. They planned it for a year, and had the most beautiful flowers. AnnMarie personally made all the invitations, centerpieces and candle gifts for all her guests. She also made the bouquets at the end of each aisle with garden hooks found at the Christmas Tree Shop, canning jars and some wire. She's so clever! They had a fabulous chocolate fountain too!
It was a joyous celebration.
And three weeks later...she's expecting their baby!!!
And this is a skein of my lovely thick and thin yarn. It has character, doesn't it? This is actually my first full skein that I dyed, spun and plied. I just like looking at it!
