Fun things to see and do, and memories to be made.
We went to a balloon fest.
Adorable frog balloon.
I would have the hardest time choosing a hot air balloon, it I were to purchase one. So many choices!
Watched some of the restoration work that is being done to the tabernacle in Manti.
four stories of scaffolding.
When we lived in Manti, we used to attend church in this building. It's quite a beautiful church house; both inside and out.
for a few minutes, we watched as this workman ground out some of the old mortar. Such a labor intensive job!
Puts a smile on my face, whenever there is restoration work going on with an old building. It's nice to see old buildings saved and maintained.
Did you forget about the sweet potatoes?
Well, some made the move ok, and others did not.
I let some of the jars go dry, and I forgot to water them.
You can see this one has plenty of slips on it.
planting the sweet potatoes in a pot on the patio. Potato and all, and I didn't bother to divide the slips. The entire potato went in the dirt, and so far they seem to be thriving.
We just might end up with a few sweet potatoes this Fall.
If nothing else, they look nice and they will fill in the pot quite well.
We've been going to yard sales, most weekends.
Some our finds include :
* A large framed print of the basket and berries.
A Gladys Taber book, I actually ordered this book online, as I couldn't find any of Gladys' books in our on-line list at the library. I need to go in and ask if they can get any of her books.
Thanks going out to my blog friends that suggested Gladys Taber books!
Sweet inscription from a Pauline, sends wishes that the book will be enjoyed not only by the recipient, but by their Japanese friends as well. Love that.
I'll put them away until Fall. Couldn't pass them by though... such sweet stitching, and of course the colors are rich and caramel-y. Fall is my very favorite season anyway.
summer picnicking with my sweetheart.
Yes, it's the good ol' summer time.
Days filled with activities, and making memories.
I have noticed so many more folks out to the yard sales on Saturday mornings. It seems like more and more people like to go yard sale-ing.
I wonder if yard sale-ing is just gaining popularity where I live.
I also wonder what other people are looking at to buy at yard sales.
I'm always on the look out for old dishes, old books, old linens.........etc.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful that Spencer was with me yesterday when I took Rowdy to get his shots.
On the way home, we saw a 4x4 in the road, and Spencer had me pull over. He watched for traffic, and then he pulled the board out of the road. He didn't want anyone to run it over and wreck.
I'm grateful that he is such a thoughtful person!!
