priorities


the reddest rose Originally uploaded by dressform.

spent all day yesterday in the garden... see....
mini plants

this is the latest i think we've ever planted our veggies. i love how dorky the plants look when they are small. hubby also won a gift certificate to target at work and so we spent some of it in the garden section. the rose above came from there... it is the reddest of reds. i'm so excited [not many roses in our yard thus far]. speaking of target - have you seen the new tara store? i love the striped bag . i'm so predictable.

hubby's brother is in town - so time to gear up for a BBQ - plus get everything else done [grading? still there! drawings? must photo]. but before i go

trimswap

a hint of what i'm sending for bara's trim swap. which certainly makes me go woo hoo.... i really wanted to make my partner something personal, but am afraid that i'll have to ask her if she's up for a zaaka swap another time. i had grand ideas. i have let them go. i am sending her some of my favorite vintage embroidery hoops in yellow, though - because i think she's currently into that color.... hmmmm....

and....
who says dogs and cats don't get along?

i woke up to this the other morning.... i can't believe they didn't move before i got the camera, but.... proof that doggies and kitties can snuggle!

chini you make a good pillow

and i how could i forget....

How fun-I love gardening. I hope you have a good time w/your bro-in-law,ahh, family is good. Yeah, I am hoping (fingers are crossed) that you have me for the trim swap, but sadly I don't think so. Oh well, someone else deserves a little lisa goodness sometimes. Enjoy the holiday-abbs

Cats and dogs snuggling...I love it. I also have a few pictures of my two creatures sleeping like this.
Gardening, how great and home produced vegetables taste so much better.
I hope you post more pictures on the development of your plot.
Cheers!
