I know it's high time I posted, and since I have been so neglectful of posting, I now have a pileup of things to post about. So here goes.
Last week, I finished two crochet projects.
First I finished a hummingbird graph to hang in the bathroom (I think)

And then I finished my poncho

And then on Saturday evening we went to the Nathan Clark George concert. We really enjoyed hearing him sing. He sang a couple of psalms, hymns, some he had written himself, and a couple of goofy songs.
Here's some pics.

And then Dad had his birthday yesterday.

Brownies and ice cream topped with homemade caramel! Yuuuuuum!!!

Well now, we do have some caramel left, and I was thinking that maybe since I made it, I should go sneak a spoonful....

A day at the Vaughns

This afternoon, Elise, Laurel, and I went to the Vaughn's to watch the kids while Bethany went into town. Elise had to leave for a horse show in the evening, so she left Laurel and I to fix supper for them. I was able to work on my latest crochet project, until I ran out of thread! And I forgot to take my camera with me, so darn if I didn't get pictures of the new baby!

Here's a picture of the poncho I am working on. Isn't it pretty?

Having a pity party for myself

My day has been perfectly ruined. One word. Allergies.

Friday, two peahens showed up and started eating our chicken's feed, (if we don't find out who they belong to, we may end up with a peafowl family)
She would really like to come under the fence, but she's not too sure about me.

Then I made my flower garden bush-hog proof. Or at at least I think those logs will stop those guys from plowing it over!

Then on Saturday I did some more work in my flower garden, cutting down all those nasty weeds you see in the picture. Saturday night, I accompanied Elise to a horse show in Scotts Hill, and that is where I began to feel the first affects of allergies kicking in.
I put a video of Elise's run on our family blog.
One of the several pictures I took while I was there. That guy is pulling the horse around the barrel with the wrong hand!

Then on Sunday, I was too sick to go to church, so I laid around and felt sorry for myself while everybody had fun at church, (well they MUST have had fun since I wasn't there) and tried to comfort myself with a stupid movie. I picked out several that were options, and ended up watching the stupidest one, since that was the only one I hadn't seen a hundred times.

I thought for sure I would be better by today, but not so. So I'm still having to have a pity party for myself.
Care to join me?
