Day 242 of 2016

Hey, it's me. 
I had an appointment in this building this morning. 
I love that the huge windows act as mirrors at this time of day. 
It makes everything seem so bright, 
maybe a little too bright for my dilated eyes today.

Day 241 of 2016

This is the movie list. 
It has been taped to a door for a long time. 
We are slow and not very methodical but,
tonight we can check off another on our list. 
We went for the shortest as time was not on our side.

Day 240 of 2016

We have a new neighbor. 
She is a seven-week-old Goldendoodle ball of fur. 
She could not be any cuter!

Day 239 of 2016

A little splash of sunshine seems to be what is needed to finish off the summer. 
I think these citrus colors will do the trick.

Day 238 of 2016

The 1974 edition of Betty Crocker's Cookbook has the best recipes. 
Today I made the apple crisp. 
It was nothing short of wonderful, as always.

Day 237 of 2016

Today has been a busy weather day here. 
There was at least one confirmed tornado in town (not a common event) 
and many more across our state. 
 One tornado even flattened a Starbucks in Kokomo, Indiana. 
If you search, you can find a video of it being destroyed. 
Crops were ruined, barns have no roofs, 
and at least one house was struck by lightning and caught fire. 
As for us, we mainly got a lot of rain. 
This is in our front yard even after the water had subsided a bit.

Day 234 of 2016

It was an absolutely perfect day. 
Perfect sky.  Perfect temperature.  Perfect (lack of) humidity. 
Even the birds on the wire were singing.  
Zoom in. You'll see them.

Day 233 of 2016

It's Saturday night.  Fireball is downtown at the game.  
I am supposed to be sewing, but this is the activity I have chosen. 
It feels good.

Day 232 of 2016

When you don't have as much hair on top as you used to  
 and the doctor suggests you protect yourself, 
you start to accumulate a hat collection.

Found this little guy on an evening walk. 
See a couple more pictures from the walk here.

Day 229 or 2016

Dinner with a friend turned into an evening of conversation.
I missed the pink sunset. 
It doesn't bother me.  I'll catch the next one...
unless I'm having dinner with a friend.

Day 225 of 2016

My neighbor is growing tomatoes. 
If they ripen on my side of the fence are they technically mine? 
Just wondering.

Day 224 of 2016

I have been a fan of the artwork and paper products of Rifle Paper Co. 
for a long time, 
so when I heard there was going to be a fabric line from the same designer 
I could hardly wait to get my hands on some. 
Tonight that happened.
It just arrived at my local quilt shop and won't last long.

Day 222 of 2016

I really wanted to start some socks with this yarn 
so I started a swatch to check my gauge.  
I know a swatch is supposed to be much bigger than this, 
but there is no reason to continue with it
 as it is quite evident that my stitches are way too small. 
Larger needles with this same yarn will make the stitches too loose 
so I will be opting to switch to a different yarn instead.

Two days later than expected, but really done.

Day 220 of 2016

The walk was short.
The weather was perfect. 
The music was great. 
Date night concert downtown with my sweetie.

Day 219 of 2016

I guess when you renovate the shed (remember?),
it's an invitation to come start a family...
 inside the tool bag.

Day 217 of 2016

One of today's tasks was to plan and hang a gallery wall of artwork

Well, the planning is done. 
The hanging will happen on Saturday.

I'm watching some of my favorite people tonight 
as the cast of Game of Thrones visits Conan.
