and she went crazy with the design
isn't it lovely?
it was supposed to be a couch blanket
but we sleep with it every night

we live in a happy harmony with our house spiders
it's an old house
nature's just outside the door
it's hard to avoid

they don't bother us
so we don't bother them
(unless they get REALLY big and mean looking)

i kind of think the baby spiders are cute

got this great puzzle as a gift from my favorite german
hand-cut, nice thick pieces
(german, of course)
we worked on it furiously
until we hit the grey and white blank pieces
then it sat, unfinished, in our living room for months

while we were away on vacation
our friend finished it for us
what a relief!
just packed it up last weekend

been a busy few weeks
quiet past weekend
planted new vegetable seeds
crossed my fingers for the struggling broccoli seedlings
got really happy over our suddenly blooming camelia bush
and enjoyed fantastically sunny weather
