How's Your Summer Going? Mine is going and going...




I thought we were going to take the summer off. Between ballet camps, violin lessons, pool parties, and trying to keep two little girls, one man and 4 animals from destroying my house, I have been busy! I am amazed that I have made this much progress on my summer stitching! Today has been a stay-at-home-day; it is amazing that a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom has to set aside days to stay home! I have spent the day schooling and sorting socks (yes, some of the schooling happened on my bed while I was sorting the socks.)

Princess Ozma says hello. Here she is taking a break from tinkling all over my house!!!.The garden is looking pretty parched today. Some of the flowers with thicker petals still have their heads up.

The vegetable garden is so far doing well. I absolutely cannot wait to try these 'Jaune Flamme' tomatoes.
Tomatoes are one of my favorite parts of summer - right up there with children wearing themselves out in the pool!

Oh I love tomatoes too!! Summer ones are the best ... nothing like what you get in the grocery store. My favorite sammie in the summer, aside from a crabcake in my mouth!, is a tomato sandwich - white bread with mayo, tomato, salt and pepper ... yum!

Cute kitty! Our garden veggies are doing well too, including tomatoes. I love the fresh taste of home-grown veg!

Your summer stitching is gorgeous! And so are your flowers, and your kitty! :D Can I just say -- I don't know how you do it. I could never have homeschooled my kids. Good for you!

Beatiful progress and oh so pretty flowers too.
I love tomatoes in the summertime. I could live off of tomatoe sandwiches and Helman's mayo.

Yeah, isn't it fun being a stay at home mom?! ;) I used to love it when it rained, so that I could at least take a break from the daily routine of going to the pool with the kids! That way I was able to catch up on housework, etc. Fun times, though. ;) Nice stitching progress!

Just found your blog on Evlogia. Your stitching is beautiful! I tend to crochet myself - I don't know that I have the hand-control or patience for embroidery. Beautiful work (and beautiful blog!).
