Day 304 of 2021

The view out the window looked beautiful, like a painting. 
The situation inside was not so beautiful.

It was a beautiful day for a birthday. 
Happy birthday, Fireball. 
I'm so glad we could spend it together.

We're taking the back roads today, 
complete with a bit fall color and a red truck.

Day 298 of 2021

Monday is laundry day. 
I was gone all day. 
I thought I could still get it done tonight, 
but it looks like I will have one more load to do tomorrow.

Day 297 of 2021

I was putting my knitting away for the night
 when I thought I saw something move on the floor. 
I looked up to see what it might have been
 and only saw what appeared to be a piece of thread. 
I had a feeling it was not so I got up to investigate. 
Sure enough the "thread" began to move at great speed. 
I stomped in time to stop the now dead spider. 
I sat back down and heard a pop. 
I stood up to find my working needle had not made it into my bag yet 
and was now snapped. 
Now this project will be delayed until I find new needles.

Day 291 of 2021

I've posted a similar picture a couple times.
Does anyone remember where I am? 
I come here routinely about every six weeks or so. 
I always hope my next visit will be further out 
but it hasn't been working out that way. 
So, Where am I?

I love this part of the walk to the stadium. 
It was especially pretty today.

Day 289 of 2021

I'm doing some wedding building today 
and I am reminded that the first cut is always the scariest.

Seasonal crafting with the kids is messy and exciting, but always fun.

Day 284 of 2021

I am shopping for something very specific. 
I had never been upstairs in this store before so I thought I would look. 
I didn't find what I was looking for 
but I found the architecture was very interesting.

Day 283 of 2021

GB#3 wanted his mom to have a stuffed rabbit for her birthday. 
He came to visit me with a vision of what he wanted and an outgrown sweater. 
In my studio he drew a blueprint
 and we discussed how the sweater would be used 
and additional fabric options. 
This is the final result of his designing, our brainstorming, and my sewing.

Today's work.

 

Day 281 of 2021

Although it was not totally unexpected 
that the upper roof would need all new deck boards, 
it was still a little jarring to see the house so exposed in preparation.

Day 280 of 2021

When you put glasses on GB#5
 who shares her middle name with her Grandma (my mom)
 who passed away three years ago, 
she bears a remarkable resemblance to her.
