I am having a very hectic day. DD # 2 and grandson are here for the day. I have him signed up for swimming lessons so we went to that this morning. DD wants some attention given to her hexie quilt; she needs more yellow and blue hexies, wants to borrow my small iron and ironing mat and wants to copy my hexie template. I am watering all my gardens which takes several hours of moving hoses around. I do books for our recreation board and there was some mail and cheque writing that had to be taken care of today. Generally things have just been busy.
Here are some photos I’ve been meaning to post. I’ve seen quite a few moose on the road this year but here’s the first successful picture I’ve taken. That brownish spot behind the bush in front of her is two calves.
If you look closely you can see one of them as they were running off into the bush here
I don’t have many outdoor flowers this summer. I want to rebuild my flower beds so I’ve left them empty. I do have some beautiful flowers on indoor plants though. First my orchid…
my African violet…
And a cactus…. I don’t know what kind it is…
I didn’t use random number generator for the draw. No time to figure it out. Here is the bowl with all the little slips of paper.
And a small boy who was eager to pull the slips…
You would think he could read – he was so intent on unfolding and looking at the papers.
The winners are:
Momtodc who said: The highlight of my day so far was playing Angry Birds on my phone with my son. We took turns and ended up spending over an hour passing the phone back and forth.
And Gene Black who said: The best part of my day so far was relaxing while holding my new Great Niece, Emily and watching part of a marathon of "The Voice" - it was a family day.
Congratulations! I’ll e-mail you soon. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
