I was recently on the phone chatting with one of my uncles when I had the strong desire to keep my hands occupied doing something. I hadn't started any crochet project and didn't really want to stitch so I just picked up this ball of crochet cotton and a hook and began to crochet trying to make up some kind of pattern. I didn't get all this done on that call but picked it up again a few days later when on the phone again. The stitches aren't all quite the same & it's not exactly even but I gave it to my daughter who immediately put it on her desk under a small vase of flowers :)
It was a beautifully calm summer evening the other day and my 20 year old daughter asked me to join her outside to blow some bubbles. It was fun and soon the lawn was covered with all these delightful bubbles. I had to grab my camera to remember this moment of fun.
I was absolutely delighted yesterday morning when I walked into the living room and my hibiscus was blooming!! I had never tried growing one before and bought it on sale this spring for $2.00. The bloom only lasted the one day but there's another fat bud coming along. Seeing this gorgeous flower before rushing out to work at 6:30 really made my day :) I love the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson "the earth laughs in flowers" :) :) I hope that today a flower has brightened up your day :)
