~ 'guardian grandmas' donation from Ms. Luna plus bits & pieces ~


Thank you, thank you Ms. Luna for your generous donation of 22 precious little baby hats.  They are adorable.  I especially love the little pointy ones - so cute.  ♥

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Thinking of crocheting a blanket with just white & off white yarns.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I called in my dogs one day.  Tex came in, but Ladybug didn't, so I went looking for her.

I couldn't find her.


I called her name.


Then I whistled.


There she is.  Looks like I disturbed her sleep.  

Ladybug likes to dig holes and then lay in them.  Drives us crazy.

~ Hello ladies ~


I'm back from the campground.  We sure did have fun.  Well, except for the working parts.  Laura and I defrosted the freezer, covered a small leak on the roof of the trailer, replaced the shower curtain rings in the ladies bathhouse, and washed the golf cart.
  
I did get some crocheting done.  I made baby bibs and bottle covers.






Our great-niece Kelsey, her best friend Hannah, and our niece Sabrina stayed with me and my sister Laura, and we enjoyed having them with us.  I think they enjoyed staying with us too.  Kelsey even told me and Laura that we were "cooler than what we looked."  We laughed so much at that.  :)  


And lastly, we roamed around the campground on the golf carts.  It's so much fun.

I can't wait to go back.  :)
