the first two weeks...
...when my wardrobe doubles as the
summer lightweights meet and mix with the autumn middleweights.
it's my favorite match!
always a winner!
above, the look for the younger set...with cowboy boots.
for me, sweater over my burnt Sienna knit maxi sundress...
...metallic flip flops, and...i'm good!
oh...yes...there is F O O T B A L L !
our sports guy was at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta for Boise State's kickoff!
they played Ole Miss!
i am quite certain that Archie, (Peyton and Eli's dad), and
Leigh Anne Tuohy, (Michael Oher's mom), were at the game.
(Leigh Anne is all about the power of one making a difference!)
(pardon me, as i digress.)
you know that i LOVE that movie!
after Atlanta, Jay was home, ( Boise home), for one very appreciated day off.
he was gellin' with Camille's nephew Easton!
too - cute - twin - fauxhawks!
this morning...the deck!
sadly, we lost Saturday due to the rain.
the guys worked eleven hours yesterday.
Michael and Tom will be back today to add a couple more pieces to the
pressure treated frame, and start the cedar wrap!
this is a shot of our family room this morning.
our Lavender has now officially bloomed from May to September!
the Chocolate Gousse has been sneaking and snacking on the tomatoes.
she has always defied being a carnivore.
Mr D will be headed off to his yearly cast and blast in October.
i would like to invite some girlfriends over for champagne to christen the new deck.
i am planning to paint the bathroom at the end of the hallway and so hope to knit
a LOOPY MANGO throw!
(i must mention that the girl above did not work in her end before the photograph!)
A L L OF T H E K I T S A R E F O R B E G I N N E R S !
i have been obsessed with the thought of making a LOOPY MANGO throw for about two years.
it's just that the expenditure seemed a little extravagant!
unless you are knitting cotton dishcloths and baby hats, knitting can be "spendy".
i welcome you, oh fave month of mine...
