Same Old Pom Pom Stuff

 Timothy is an early bird like us.  He likes to watch for moths in the morning.  

I took this photo of me fake sleeping, but Tim is sleeping for real.  I sent it to our Jenny and she said, "He thinks he's a human."  He does. 

 The trees are so green and full.  This is such a pretty time of year. 
 When I was out filling the wading pool and planting some nasturtium seeds someone was watching me. 
 The fire-colored marigolds volunteered their beauty again this year.  Yay!
 Gulp!  I have enough zucchini plants to feed our whole neighborhood block.  Ooops. 
 Today Sam, Lizzy, and I went to Sam's Club and we came upon some tea party fare.  Pretty!  We ran out of time and didn't have a tea party after all. We'll do it Saturday. 
 This is the earliest we've EVER had sweet peas.  I'm thrilled with them!  They smell so delicious. 

 Hollyhocks coming soon. 
 I think this kind of rose is called florabunda.  I am thankful the beetles are not dining in our flowerbeds. 

I put a chair in the dirt garden.

Wonder of wonders - MIRACLE!  I am actually finished with my alpaca vest and I am using my new blocking pads that I received for Christmas!  

When I made the sleeves and sewed them in for this striped sweater that I've been working on for one hundred years, I realized it is all wrong.  The sleeves are dropped but skinny.  I looked like a stuffed sausage when I put it on.  Bad planning.  So, I shall make the body into a pillow!  Poof!  Remind me not to make anymore pullovers/jerseys because they do not turn out well when one has a Winnie the Pooh body to work with.  Cardigans.  Just cardigans. 

 This nature journal guide is full of info.  I didn't realize there was so much to learn.  
 I would like to become more aware, more appreciative of God's creativity, so I'm going to give it a try (journaling with art in response to natural beauty). 
 I like to order used cookbooks.  Cheap!  This is a beautiful addition to my cookbook library.  I don't know if any of the recipes really fit my particular cooking style, but looking at beautiful photos of food is almost as good as eating lovely food.  Do you agree?
 I have a small yarn stash compared to other enthusiastic knitters, but I LOVE looking at wool, dreaming of all kinds of knitted possibilities.  

 My friend Nana Go Go sent me a Facebook link informing me that there is a a new Pooh movie all about Christopher Robin.  Oh my goodness.  I can't wait.  Let's have a little honey to celebrate! 

I'll put the kettle on and wait for you to get here.  I'll be knitting.
