What's Been Going on This Week

2 blog updates in one week. That just doesn't happen much anymore but since I'm learning how to blog with my IPad you might see me here more often (but probably not! haha).

We had a freeze last night here in northeastern Oklahoma. Last year we barely had any winter at all so after our long hot summer some of us are welcoming the cooler weather.

My hibiscus survived last night and my mums are beautiful again this year. I picked the rest of my miniature roses so I could enjoy them another week.

I had a birthday this week. Decades ago I loved cake (and I still do). I'm assuming my big brother did, too from the looks of these pictures of my first birthday. I haven't figured out how to put pictures in any particular order so I'm afraid you'll just have to sort that out yourself. If there is anyone out there blogging from an iPad who knows how to do that, please HELP ME!!

I started a new quilt. I've had this pattern for years and finally decided to use it. I got it all cut out and one block made. One down....19 to go.

The owners of the shop that I work at are away at market in Houston so I'm helping hold down the fort while they're away. It will be exciting to see what they come back with. My BFF is also away and will be returning tomorrow or Monday. She's been gone over 3 weeks so I will be quite pleased to see her soon.

Another busy week is ahead of me. So until later....

I appreciate the picture. I think many people would have the same feeling as me towerd thepiatures. Thought the passage is a litter bit of shore, the photos can make up for it. Thank you for me to have chance to read them. Now I want to post my favouit goods: freshwater pearl and freshwater pearl bracelet in your post. Thank you again.

Happy Birthday!!!

you look like you are ready to smack him a good one if he gets that big mouth any closer to your cake - big brothers can be such a pain, huh?

our hard freeze was over a month ago and just about everything died overnight - one last, lonely cosmos didn't make it through the snow last week, and now there are just a couple of pansies holding out on the front porch ... sigh ... i knew in the middle of the hottest summer ever that i would be moaning and groaning about being too cold in a couple of months ... and here i am.
