We took a walk down to the river and something RED caught my eye...
Do you see the two tulips growing there on the mountainside?
I was going to leave them at first, but then I decided I would take them and enjoy them for as long as they would last at home. I will plant at least double that amount of bulbs there in the Autumn to replace them.
I moved them beside my bed at night so I could see them there.
They lasted for a week.
The last couple of days they opened wide and turned a rosy-mauve color.
The day before, I admired this Fuschia at a gardening center.
Isn't it AMAZING?? Wow!
I was amazed at its beauty and perfection.
I had left a Chocolate Pie in the window to cool while we were gone.
The river was beautiful, as it always is.
It's at its lowest point during the summer months.
Ahh...fresh air and clear water.
When we got home I put together these chicken kabobs.
The chicken had been marinating in Italian dressing since the day before.
I used mushrooms, onion, yellow squash, and red pepper with the chicken.
I oiled everything in a big bowl with plenty of garlic.
Then I sprinkled on the salt & pepper generously after skewering everything.
That char makes it taste extra-specially good! Delicious!
We took a drive after lunch to see the golf course in Colville...
I'm tempted to take up golf after seeing the views!
Ken is playing in a tournament next Saturday.
Did I tell y'all we were invited to join the Lion's Club?
We've been to a couple of meetings already.
We'll officially join at the meeting this week.
More activities! More friends!
The book I just started.
I'm not far enough into it to have an opinion yet, but I'm hoping it's as good as all the reviews I've seen because it's a series of four books. I've been very disappointed lately in books. It's so hard to find something that holds my attention.
I can't remember what I've shown here as opposed to Instagram. Forgive me if I'm repeating myself. This is the new headboard we made and the nightstands Ken made with dog kennels on the bottom. I'm pretty sure I did mention it now.
We should all learn to relax like Ollie.
This is the most luscious yarn I've ever owned!
Lady Dee's Traumgarne Silberschweif
A nice lady at Hotyarns helped me find this yarn in the exact color I wanted and ordered it for me from Germany then mailed it to me. (I have a specific pattern in mind for this.) Her name was Liane and she was VERY helpful and went way beyond anything I expected. We emailed back and forth a few times, and in about four weeks, I had it in my hands. Their shipping price is very reasonable at $2.99.
Now I just need to find my CroJo. (Crochet Mojo.) I seem to have lost it. I've had no desire to do anything remotely related to crochet the past few weeks. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada. You'd think I'd be chomping at the bit to hook this lovely yarn up into something amazing, but I'm content just to stare at it and pick it up and squish it every now and then. Maybe once the novelty of spring has warn off a little, I'll get inspired to do something. For now...nope.
Time for lunch on the porch.
