“To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.” 

-Jane Austen


This was my day yesterday.

I woke up, made myself some coffee, stumbled out onto the patio, shielded my eyes from the glaring bright object in the sky that we haven’t been seeing much of lately, determined that it was in fact the sun, smiled at feeling the warmth on my face, and promptly sat down in my faux Adirondack chair to settle in for a lovely morning. 

Did some calendaring, worked on my knitting project, called my best friends, and breathed.

The puppies were very happy it was sunny out as well. Lucy insisted I fill her pretty pink pool for her enjoyment.

Apparently a lovely refreshing dip was just the ticket. And then of course there was some frolicking to be had as well.

The girls were quite content to be outside in the their new playpen, thanks to Daniel. 🙂

I continued to work on my knitting and made about 3 phone calls to Vic with questions. 

A girls knitting salvation:

As well as this lovely lady, available anytime via telephone:


All this knitting and playing with puppies and talking with friends and relaxing is bound to make a girl hungry. So I made myself some lunch.

A bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mung bean sprout sandwich paired with a nice glass of Kombucha tea. Yes, please!



Homemade wheat bread, uncured bacon (cause hello, it’s just better for you than the other stuff), juicy tomatoes, lettuce from the garden, and mung bean sprouts courtesy of Oma, a lovely lady I work with. Yum yum yummy to my tum tum tummy.

Oh my, how will I fit my mouth around it?

Oh dear.

Delicious! That, by the way, is MY happy face. 😉

Another thing you should know……..

….I am one who is of the opinion that one cannot have TOO much cookies and cream ice cream on hand. What can I say? They were two for one. I’m all about the bargain.


In conclusion of my summary of my delightful day yesterday, I have a question that I would like to pose to you. What do you think I should use this for?

Colette gave it to me over the fence the other day. I’m thinking patio water feature…. or perhaps patio herb garden. What do YOU think??

    Oh, my goodness! The girls have gotten so big! Wow, they’re really distinct now, aren’t they? That’s sooooo awesome!

    I am sad that the video is not playing for me, I would have liked to see the Lucy-ness.

    And as for your liner, I say make a water feature–it’s what I want to do! One day when I have the money and my garden has been established, that is. Though my fish are getting a mite too big for the puny tank they’re in and I imagine they’re willing me very loudly to hurry up and make the pond.

    I love the picture of you eating! Golly-gee, I miss you!

    Gotta love that happy face. That last one is a scream. Bet your toes were wiggling too and a little hum wasn’t too far away either.

    I am SO game for the knitting circle! And you can come over whenever you like. I’m going to be working morning most days, at least at first, at the new job, but I’m bound to have a day or two off, yeah? Miss, miss!
