Greetings From The Easy Bake Oven

Finally finished! I may have said this before, but stitching that grass was better than a sleeping pill. A few stitches and I was nodding off. I know I don't want to stitch anymore grass for awhile. :)

Actually,this grass is a lot greener than the real thing around here. I know we were supposed to have a brief respite from the heat, but I must have missed it.

There were some heavenly breezes blowing off the water in Old New Castle the other day. This poor little guy was probably wishing he could strip his fur suit off. Because of the blazing sun he is a little hard to see.

Being busy with my parents has left my garden sadly neglected this year. I still can't believe I didn't buy any annuals. Thank goodness for perennials. These hardy little things aren't looking too bad.

I may be adding a new planting to my garden soon. It's called Vinny.

He is so sweet with people. Unfortunately, not so much with the other cats. This is the look he sometimes gives me when I have had to be firm with him.

My daughter has been in North Carolina for a week now and I still miss her terribly! I know it will get easier with time (I hope). This is a picture of her and my future son-in-law taken at Greenfield Lake in Wilmington, North Carolina.

I know we all go through tough times in life but those times become a little easier when you have wonderful blogging friends! I find encouragement in the lovely comments I receive! I appreciate everyone who takes the time to visit. I don't know if I will ever quit being amazed at the kindness I have found here in blogland.
