Birthday and Clouds

We celebrated Tyler's 10th birthday yesterday.  He is our only Great Grandson.  He got 2 sets of army men and money.  He set up this as his battle field.





These were the clouds on our way home last evening.  I love taking pictures of clouds.



Therman the neighbor's cat was guarding the birdbath this morning so another cat could not get a drink out of it.  All the cats jump up into it to drink.  He usually just sits there but this morning he laid down in it.  There is a flat rock in the middle he is laying on.  The other cat is a black one which you can hardly see in the bottom left of the picture.  He laid there for almost an hour.

Cuddle Time

Went to Terry's to visit with her, Emily and baby Ave Grace.  Got my cuddle time with her and she fell asleep in my arms.  Brings back memories.  She seemed to feel right at home in my arms.  Love being a Great Grandma too.


Great Grandpa held her long enough to get some pictures taken.  He is not big on holding tiny babies.  In this picture she looks like who are you.

Doll Blankets

Here are the last 6 blankets I made for the Giving Doll in Wadsworth.  I love making these for kids in need.

Great Granddaughter

It has been 3 days now since Ava Grace was born but things have been busy so I am just now posting.  She was born on the 10th.  Emily and Ava are doing fine.  Grandma Terry has been helping out.  Here is a picture of Emily and Ava.  She is just 1 day old in this picture.


I have a hard time remembering any of my kids or grand kids being this small. But I am sure they were.  Will see her soon for more cuddles.

Another This and That

Sorry for the blurry picture but these 2 Black Capped Chickadee's were having fun in the birdbath.  The sun on the window caused the glare.


One of my Trumpet vines and it has a lot of blooms on it this year.  They are just starting to open.  Many more to come.


Another Granny Square Doll Blanket for the Giving Doll.


Hand sanitizer bottle holders for you purse or what every you are carrying.  I need to get the bottles to fill them yet.  I will donate them to the church bazaar in Nov.


New carpet on my inside porch steps.  The old one was getting worn on the edges and we were afraid it might cause us to fall.  Besides I had a gift coupon for $25.00 and that covered the carpet and the tacks to hold it in place.  It should last us a long time.

Little of This and That

My Star Gazer Lilies are starting to bloom.


This is tomato plant #1  They sure are getting bigger.


Tomato plant #2.  That is the total of our garden and they are in pots.


This is a potted planter I was given for Mother's day and the large leaf plant in the middle died off.  But look it is coming back up.  I am so glad.


2 more doll blankets for the Giving Doll.

Flowers, Hot air balloon and Doll Blankets

These are blooming now.





We have seen this balloon several times on our way home from our son's but never got close enough to get a good picture of it.  This picture has been blown up several times so you could see it well.


2 more Doll blankets for the Giving Doll.  I love the blue one but the purple one is a color I have always loved.  It was yarn that was given to me.

This and That

Here is the spouted bottle hubby bought me at the Seville yard sales last weekend.  He spent a whole $.25 on it.  But I love the bottle.


Four more doll quilts for the Giving Doll.

 
I was out taking pictures when the Hummer flew by.  He landed in my Trumpet vine and is right in the middle of this picture on my Trumpet vine.  He landed here first then flew to the feeder in the next picture.



My Day Lilies.


My Hosta.


First tomatoes on our potted plants.
