Meet the “Fam” !!!

I love that line from the movie, ‘What About Bob’ !


We think that movie is a classic! lol

I went to Widdlytinks to make a stick family!

I saw it on the blog, Sue Bee ! Thanks Sue!!!

I put it at the top AND bottom of my blog!

Isn’t it CUTE?!!


I’m still sewing but I did venture out to the park one day!


I don’t know what this bush is, do you?


The flowers look like tiny orchids! 


Did you have a wonderful weekend?


Any big plans for this week?

I’ll have some sewing to share soon!

HAVE FUN! island

Hello Diane!

I finally had a chance to come over and catch up.

Cute stick family! Beautiful pictures! I have seen those yellow flowers but I do not know what they are. I would be interested in knowing the answer to that myself.

I had to laugh at your "A in home ec" post! I recently had to do the same thing. It was at Target and involved a toy for my Little Darling. The customer service rep had the most stunned look on his face and then asked me if I was "for real?" Umm yes, can you please ring it up for me?

You have posted about some of my favorite parks! I loved the post about the deer at your car. too cute!

In fifth grade my class had to memorize the song Swanee River/Old Folks Home and then one at a time we had to go out in the hall and sing it word for word for the teacher! It is interesting that the version I learned was the “modern” version and not the original version by Stephen Foster. I did not even know of the original version until I was an adult and happened upon an article about it in a magazine.

No big plans here. Just got through cleaning house. Take the dogs to get groomed tomorrow. Their regular twice a month date. Maybe work in the garden if this heat lets up. We need rain!

p.s. Possibly a Palo Amarillo (i.d. courtesy of a friend of mine from Venezuela who I enlisted in the query...)

Stacey said...

I'm so glad you take us on walks to the park. Since I'm working full time now, I don't get nearly enough outside time. :)

The tree blossoms are so pretty...I love that shade of yellow. classes have started at work so its busier...tomorrow my son and granddaughter come for dinner. This weekend we all celebrate my youngest son's 30th birthday...nice week. :o)

Hi Diane,

Your photographs are beautiful and love the pretty yellow flowers and the purple Iris.
I should be doing some sewing, making a suit, but it is easier talking to blog friends.

Happy week
