It's a Beautiful Saturday...

And I'm taking advantage of that...

 Started out with coffee on the porch this morning.

Took the camera and the laptop outside
to take some garden photos and to get some
work done on a new website.

  I'm now drinking iced tea and
working on this blog post.

Thinking having dinner on the porch with
the Husband will be an end to a gorgeous day.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

will have another grandbaby calling us
Mom Mom and Gramps.
Our younger daughter Meagan and her husband Erik
are expecting their first child. 
We are all so excited to have another addition 
to the family. 

Oh...and it's a boy!

Oh How I Enjoy Gardening...

Weeding, sweating, and being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
A glorious day in the garden.
Later, when I'm sitting on the porch with
a glass of wine, enjoying the flowers,
I will be happy that I weeded,
sweated and gave blood today.

The Christening Dress...

Yesterday was a very special day...
the dress I was baptized in was used again
for the christening of my beautiful great niece. 
Over twenty children have been baptized in this simple,
hand stitched cotton dressed that
my Grandmother Lillian (my Father's Mother)
purchased for my christening over sixty years ago. 
She was my Godmother and
my Grandfather (my Mother's Father)
was my Godfather. 
Godparents for the newest member of our family
were her Mother's sister and Father's brother.
Our Family is Truly Blessed.

  It's been a busy week at the Workshop this week. 
Lots of orders for Father's Day.

 But was able to get a few shots

 of the critters visiting the feeders.


 I think these fuzzy tailed guys just
sit and wait for me to put out the seed.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
