We're having some cooler weather today, it's just lovely, more like autumn than summer for sure! Which of course means the spiders are moving in....I've been busy vacuuming and handing down the death sentence to multitudes. *shudder*
I've also been stitching.
See that pillow on the footstool? It's not really a pillow, it's a large chunk of foam that sits on my lap, to bring my stitching up to where I can see it. Saves my neck, and it's nice to stab my needle into for French knots. I have a 3-way floor lamp next to me, good for my old-ish eyes. Sweet Country Love is coming along nicely.
And I've kinda sorta been playing with fabric, with the original appliques that inspired the Sweet Country stitchery pattern. That's not going so well.
Outside, hubby has cleared the forest of all undergrowth, great place for some picnic tables - he did leave the raspberry bushes, isn't that nice. We also have some lovely looking peaches, which the deer find delicious.
I had a visitor today.
We don't really see many bunnies - too many hawks, I think. They're usually going flat out from cover to cover, but this guy stayed by the stump, found something interesting to eat, and maybe wanted a portrait done!
I've also been having a lot of trouble with the new phone my boys bought me, apparently it's having "ghost touches", and is sometimes completely unusable, might have to be replaced. Thank goodness it's still under warranty. And while I was writing this blog post, my laptop got the blue screen of death - bad pool header - whatever the heck that means. Technology is miserable sometimes. I'm so glad Sam, my youngest, is a techie.
Mom had her eye surgery, all is well, she's doing eye drops daily. After 5 years, she's figured out her recliner actually goes all the way back, so you can lay flat, helps get the drops in the right place.
That's all the news from Chez Allie - I'll leave you with a fave pic, a misty morning snapshot.
Take care my lovelies.....
