Yesterday was a day at the doctor's getting all my meds set up and then shopping with my cousin.
The weather has been nice here and I have enjoyed having the windows open.
I have also done some reading.
Back to getting things finished tomorrow.

Also 6 more pair of earrings which I have now packaged up for the craft show too. I remembered to take the picture before packaging them up this time. I have made some of these smaller. Not everyone likes large earrings.

I also just finished cutting off 4 pair of jeans to make my hubby shorts. He does not like the baggy shorts they sell in the stores. The cutting went okay because I made him try them on so I coud mark them the other day. It was the sewing that was a nightmare. I broke 2 needles which never happens and then I had to hand turn the machine over the seams because I did not have another jeans needle. At least they are done and he should be happy. I always cut both sides of the flat felt seam the length of the first half that I am turning up and leave the tip stick out so I only have 2 layers of seams to go through. I never have this much trouble. I am glad he does not have any more to cut off right now.

This is an ornament I recieved in today's mail from the swap group I am in monthly. I think he did a beautiful job on it. The picture is a little fuzzy but you can get the idea of what it looks like. I just had to post it.

I have been doing a lot of tatting lately and have sold some to several friends. I now have to get my tatted pieces into finished bookmarks and earrings. Tatting is an easy carry along to appointments where you will be waiting for the doctor or tests to be done.
Up date on my son Eric. He saw the doctor today as follow up to his motorcycle accident. He released him from the plastic boot but told him to be careful and to wear a lace up riding boot for more support. He is going out to get a pair. He could have pain and swelling for a few years because of the injury he had. Also a note to let you know he is wearing his helmet now.

This is the view of the top of the same tree. See the light pole to the left in both pictures.
This is the view from across the road in the neighbors front yard. See the big 2 story blue house? See the 2 vans on the left of the picture? The tree trimmers a few years ago said it was over 100 feet tall. It could be taller now. It has been through many a storm and still stands. If it ever goes down I sure hope it goes across the street and I do not want to be around when it hits the ground.
These are my Magic Lillies. I usually have a few but this year there is a large bunch of them. I think they are beautiful this year.

These pictures were taken of my 2 Trumpet Vines. They are just starting to bloom. Some of their branches almost touch the ground. I love the orange color and the Humming Birds just love them too.
