Mid-Week Musings

It's quiet this morning in the Little Yellow House on the Hill.

A big storm blew through last night and left everything all wet and green.

Here's what it looked like this morning from the back door:

~Since we're outside, shall we stroll through the garden?

~My tomatoes have been doing well in spite of my neglect. Honestly, I've been a terrible garden-keeper this year. I got started late, and then we had a cicada invasion of biblical proportions.  They were the 14 year cicadas and they are a menace to those like me who have a keen sense of hearing. I just couldn't spend a great deal of time outside while they serenaded for mates. 

~Sweet little Sweetpeas...delicious too.

~The kids haven't rolled out of bed yet. As of last night around 9pm The Boy was still running a fever. I'm hoping and praying he wakes up well.

~ A couple weekends ago my friend Becky and I had a craft sale....

Since I was crochet-crazy before the sale, I've taken a small break, but I need to get busy on some custom orders I received.

My favorite part of the craft sale was getting a chance to chat with all our shoppers. It was great to have a bit of time with friends. Tracey stopped by with her oldest K-child. 

We've been reading each others blog for  several years, but only met once! I was so grateful she came by... And what's more, our daughters immediately connected and enjoyed spending time together too!

The Girl also did well at the sale, earning $17.50 selling lemonade and pawning her wares.

She made these barrettes...

... and a bunch of others that were sold!

~ This afternoon is the last swim meet of the season and I can hardly believe that we are already looming on the start of July. This summer is going so quickly!
