Good Morning! How are you this morning? It is foggy and cold here in California. Though not like the rest of the country. We have a week of storms coming. If you have followed this blog for any amount of time, you know how we love rain! Rain in the forecast is like saying I am going to be opening a present soon of something wanted very badly. Always time for celebrations.
When Pinterest first came on the scene. I pinned a picture of a tea pot. Yesterday while taking Makenzie shopping for her birthday, what did my little eye spy?
The teapot! Now I have want to have a tea party. Since its almost February everything would be hearts. Like heart scones and red and white cupcakes and lots of tea. I might just have to brew some tea this morning and have a cup of tea on this cold morning.
In between working myself silly, gardening and planting seeds. I have been hooking oh so slowly, but hooking when I can. I have done this rug 4 times. This is my fourth. I am using only worms I had left over from other projects. This is for the most part 9.5 cuts. I have sold the other three rugs and I am not selling this one. Its different from all the other rugs. This is called Mother Earth from Maggie Bonami.
I have never done it with a lighter background and I have to say I am really enjoying it. The colors are different from what I normally use, but I like that too. I need to finish it before Friday so I can say I have one finished project for January.
Ron built this this weekend. Isn't it cool! Its for starting our seeds for the garden. We just started tomatoes and peppers this weekend. We also planted lettuce but its outside. He also planted five oak trees, and two apricots and a lime tree. We got over 200 berry vines in the ground.
Doesn't it look pretty all in nice beds and so clean? I have three five pound bags of seed potatoes and 100 brown onions to plant. Its too bad Ron has to work at a day job. I am finally not sore today so I could plant before it rains. I can always move further out in the pasture if I run out of room here.
Of course, by August I won't be singing this song.
I just love looking at all of these canes. Its hard to believe they will all be leafed out by April. They have such nice buds on them.
That is what I have been doing. Just keeping myself entertained. I have seed catalogs everywhere. When I sit I grab one and the visions just dance in my head.
I hope you have a lovely day. I hope it isn't too cold.
