Whell, I just want you to know that I have not just been sitting around because it's to hot to do anything else.
Indeed, I have not.
I have been busy! Very busy!
I tried to make vanilla yogurt yesterday and it waaaas...not a success.
So today I made just plain yogurt and I will put a spoonful of raspberry freezer jam into it - and will warm the cockles of my little heart so.
A different day I will try the vanilla again-it was my freeze dried yogurt starter that was the problem, its all good now.
Also, I have been going to play dates with Tiny Dancer, swinging in her swing and going for walks in the early morning when it's still cool. And planing the spot for a small sand pile.
I have also been industrious-
Yes indeedy my friends, I have been making a rug exactly like this one-

Only a little bit different...
The one I am doing is not this color or style. This one was made by Yvonne and it is braided from wool and polyester scraps. (It is really old clothing and sometimes old bedding, cut into strips and then made into something new again-Great isn't it?!)
Yes. Anyway, mine is also being made from old bedding and scraps, it is being crocheted using a big wooden hook made form an old chair rung.
I will show you pictures when I get er done.

Annnd-we have new neighbor's across the street. They parked their truck back wards in the drive way while they were moving in and the sun reflected off the windshield in the afternoons right into our windows making it very bright indeed while I was sitting there minding my own business and crocheting like crazy, when I glanced to the side-
what ?!-
I looked again---
My MOM was sitting there!!
She died in 2005!!! See the problem?
Ok, it could have been her shadow-but it was mine!!!
I knew you wouldn't believe it so I had to show you-

Huh?! I told you didn't I?!

We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.
Encourage each other!!!
