Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

A Package

My sister has many talents. One of them is crocheting which she does while she watches TV or a movie. As she says, "It's better than just twiddling my thumbs. At least this way my twiddling thumbs are producing something."
She's been crocheting for just about forever. I have doilies and potholders just about all over the place.

She's very good.

This came in the mail Saturday. A field of irises.
We all have a love for irises. Stan and I now have a multitude of yellow irises, grown from a few roots my mother brought to us all the way from her yard in California. Now Erva has sent us these, all the way from the Virgin Islands.
Thanks Erva. I love you.
