(Although by the time I finish this post, it will be afternoon, I'm sure. And you know what, I don't like coffee in the afternoon. I only like it-- love it, need it-- in the morning. How about you?)
honoring those who have served for our country
I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend with friends and family (and for those of you in the UK, hope you had a nice long Bank Holiday weekend). We had a great weekend. Lots of time spent outside, both in our yard and at the pool club-- with beautiful weather. We spent time with my husband's side of the family on Saturday and mine on Monday. The kids were thrilled to see all of their cousins. Lots of good, fresh food. and in the evening, we sipped wine outside on our front patio.
We did have some new visitors this week:
Ring-necked snake hatchlings
Sadly, there were three total-- but the two you see in the photo were crushed (not too badly-- no blood) by the garage door. The other one slithered away.
The ferns have grown from fiddleheads just a few weeks ago to lush and full:
I love ferns. And they have been growing on the earth since the time of dinosaurs-- did you know that?
And after working on some small sewing projects this weekend, my suspicion has been confirmed: the time has come for me to need a pair of these in order to read or do detail work:

Wishing everyone a great week ahead! After the long holiday weekend, I am going to have to keep reminding myself which day of the week it actually is because it feels like Monday, but its actually Tuesday. (Does that happen to you to?)
