I, like many people have been thinking about 9/11 off and on all day. About the disregard for those who would be killed, and the hate that exists between people who have never met. I have been thinking about my niece serving in the Navy, and I have been thinking about my dear sweet mother. Saturday September 17th will be her birthday. My mother died almost two years ago. In some ways it seems longer, and in some ways more recent. I'm sure its that way for everyone who loses someone they love.
The hubby and I went to see one of the natural wonders of the world last weekend. It was very cool. We took a quick 6 hour road trip to Niagara Falls. Since hubby doesn't have a passport we only did the US side, but for anyone who hasn't been there, I recommend it. Here is a pic we took.
Kaylee and I went to an estate sale last Saturday, and what do you think she wanted to buy..... a pop can cozy that looked like a shirt. She wanted it for her monkey. I wasn't sure it would fit monkey but she was confident. Turns out she had a good eye. Here is monkey being pushed on the swing, and playing on the bar in his snazzy new shirt.
Look how lush my wheelbarrow still is. It's my favorite thing this summer.
And for anyone who would enjoy one of my hand crafted folkart dragonflies here it is. This dragonfly is made from an old oak spindles out of a 100+ year old kitchen chair back, with eyes made from grommets, eyelets, and flashing wings. It sits on a small steel rod.
All you have to do is leave a comment about what you like about the dragonfly and your name so I can contact you after a winner is chosen. Very easy :) I will pick a winner Sunday 9/16th.
