Not much blog-worthy going on in Allie-land lately, but you knew that, right? I miss miss miss my blog, and I miss you too.
My auntie is doing well, apparently hips take a very long time to heal - and she's still using a wheelchair mostly. She's still having quite a bit of pain. So please pray for her, I'm sure she'd appreciate it.
Snickers has discovered she can see through her new favorite table in the family room. It has a glass top. It's been fun watching her try to dive through it.
She's queen, you know.
We've been having a little excitement here. A couple of weeks ago, Jane found a tree frog in the living room, and managed to get it outside. The other night, Snickers was going crazy in the family room, staring at the fireplace brick, and I saw a tree frog on the brick! It ended up on the mantle, frustrating Snickers no end. Jane was soundly sleeping [after a major pain pill] and I could NOT bring myself to get close enough to capture the critter.
Then I remembered Sam was working that night, so I called him to come over after work. And sent him this picture.
He laughed, of course, I know it's not a great pic but I wasn't about to get close. He came, captured it, and it only got away 3 times - the 3rd time it landed on his neck where it promptly pooped! Even with that, he now wants a pet frog. Um, no.
Since it's summer, and there are flowers everywhere, I wanted to show you a picture of my grandmother's roses. These roses have been growing in my aunt's yard for 40 years. She's going to take cuttings for me.
Aren't those gorgeous? I still miss my grandmum.
That's about all - I had Sam bring me my sketchbook the other day, I'm itching to be designing again. I miss sewing so much! I just got Jenny's newest pattern, Under the Apple Tree, have you seen it? So darling and I'm dying to start.
She's having a give-away to celebrate, go enter!
One last thing - I'm planning a little vacation for mum and me - up in the Oscoda area. If anyone knows of any beach rentals, cottages or motels, MUST be on the beach, please let me know! See you soon, my precious friends...
