Red Hair and Flowers

I took some pictures of my little Monday girl last week in our backyard.  She is pretty cute I think.

 Hummm, what can I do out here.

These roses are pretty.

Oh, what's that?

Are there fish in the water?

We also have these blooming in the backyard.  I love Peonies!

Have a wonderful week!

Classes and Babysitting

Last weekend, I took a couple of classes at the DFW Fiber Fest.   I learned how to spin art yarns like this

and how to knit in the Entrelac style.

Both will take some practice when I can find some free time.

Linz and Husker had a fancy business party to attend on Friday night and needed a babysitter for Toddler M.  So, I flew up on Thursday night and back on Saturday afternoon.  (Being an American Airlines retiree does have it's perks!)  Doc20 and I will be back in Denver soon for Toddler M's second birthday. 

He runs or gallops everywhere he goes.  I don't think he has a slow speed.

Random Stuff

The last few weeks have been pretty busy.  Last weekend I went to Portland to visit CareBear.  She has recently lost a lot of weight so we went on a two day shopping spree.  We explored a mall that she had never been to before and also got a manicure and pedicure.  We had dinner with some of her friends and I had a great time visiting with her.

The azaleas in our yard have been really pretty this year.   

I have also been knitting a lot - mostly baby stuff.  My other daughter, two nieces and a friend are all expecting babies between July and October.  The two in Julty are grils, a boy in August and the October one is yet to be determined.

and a yet to be completed original creation.

This coming weekend is the DFW Fiber Fest in Grapevine.  I have signed up for a knitting and a spinning class.  I'll let you know how they go.

While I was in Portland this last weekend, Doc20 drove to Oklahoma and found a pickup that he wants to buy and have fixed up.  It's a 1947 Ford.  He's thinking red, with AC and bucket seats.  Here's the before shot. This will not be a "do it yourself" project.  I'll let you know how this goes as well.

We (Doc20 and I) have several upcoming trips planned.  We'll be going to Denver for Baby M's second birthday in about 3 weeks,  then to New York for a few days in June, and then back to Denver in July for baby girls arrival!
