What I've Been Up To . . .

After unpacking from my wonderful trip to Germany, I have been trying to get my house in order. I've gotten my photos printed and into an album, which I took to church Sunday to show to my friends. By the way, they think my grandchildren are adorable - - I fully agree!

I've potted some flowering plants on my patio. This year I went with a pink theme. It's been nice sitting there, enjoying the outdoor birds. In fact, on Saturday a little wren sat in the bush in the foreground, not 3 feet from me and sang the most beautiful song. I've never seen one so close. He was darling.
I'm loving my new mattress and box springs! It sure makes a difference when one gets a good night's sleep!
I went to the Bloomington Civic Theater on Sunday with my sister and Aunt Liz to see The Music Man. It was really fun - high energy, great sets, wonderful period clothes. We had great seats in row 4.
Now I'm getting ready for another short trip for this weekend - a flight to Branson, Missouri, to see my dear friends Lil and Jim. Branson just got an airport in May, which I think is only about 3 miles from Lil's home. The flight is only an hour and a half - so much better than the 13 hour road trip when my family drives it.
We're in summer hours at work, meaning we can leave at noon on Fridays if we have worked our 40 hours. I really like it because it feels as though we have a 3 day weekend. The down side is not going home for lunch. I'm sure Peppi misses me. But with the sun staying up longer in the evening, we have more time together then (birds usually go to sleep when the sun sets).
That's about it.

Your deck looks very nice. The carpet has lasted well.

I agree with Heidi, it looks beautiful. I love all of your flowers!

Your grandchildren only LOOK adorable...if only your church friends knew how utterly naughty they can be!

I have bad news: The edelweiss did not survive. I'm not sure if I watered it too much or too little, but it is definitely kaput.
