On Saturday, I enjoyed "Cousins' Day" with my seven little cousins and their parents. Our original plan had been to go to Davis Farmland, but the kids so enjoy playing and hanging out together, we decided to do just that instead. My little cousins range in age from five to eleven and all get along so well.
On Tuesday, I donated two bags of clothing at the Cardinal Cushing Training Center in Hanover. As I strolled through the thrift shop, this little lamp and Halloween teddy bear planter caught my eye. Grand total of my purchases . . . $2.63.
The tag tells which student made the piece and carries this message on the back. They had bracelets in every color along with other interesting gift items. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in and take a look.
I love these delicate peach irises. There weren't as many blooms this year, so in the fall I will divide them. I was able to do a bit of gardening earlier this week. I had been concerned that due to an ongoing issue with my feet, I won't be able to do any digging. A young man in my neighborhood is between jobs, so he was happy to have a few hours work. I'll definitely be calling on him again to
help me get my gardens in shape.
