Welcome to our Summer Blueberry Tea celebration! My granddaughters, Molly, Rosie, and Joy helped me fill Cookie Bear with ginger cookies. Cookie Bear, who is about 46 years old was made for me by my last college roommate, Ginger. He has traveled back and forth across the USA thanks to all our moves. Each girl wanted him to look at her, so they kept turning his head around. Molly was our hostess and decorated the sea chest for the event. She chose blueberry flavored tea which was delicious, and Cookie Bear is looking at her in this photo.
Ruby Shawl! Teresa was first to use the pattern and encouraged me for years to finish my shawl...what a dear and faithful friend! In spite of all the challenges I faced in crocheting it, I am so glad I did. Teresa is wearing the new shawl she just finished. Isn't it gorgeous! If you haven't already visited Teresa's blog, click HERE. You will be linked to it, where you can learn more about how she made her shawl. You can also search her blog to enjoy seeing the many beautiful things she has knitted, crocheted, painted, beaded, photographed, and you can enjoy the good narratives about them and her life adventures.
Tonight my youngest son, Tim, and I plan to head to the airport to get my oldest sister, Carolyn. Then in a few days, we plan to head to the airport to get my older sister, Margaret. Next week we three sisters [ages 75, 73, and 66] plan to drive from Portland, Oregon, toward Omaha, Nebraska, to visit my niece, Trina's family who live on a farm near there. Then we plan to fly from Omaha to Boston, Massachusetts, to visit more family members. From Boston we plan to fly to Detroit, then from Detroit Margaret plans to fly back to Burbank, California, while Carolyn and I plan to fly back to Omaha and drive back to Portland.
I am so excited! My mind is full of lists I have not stopped to write down, but I hope I am remembering to do all I need to do!
Thanks for visiting with me here. I love your kind comments. My communication with you over the next six weeks is apt to be sparse, but I will be wondering..." what are you celebrating this summer?"
Cheering you on and praying for blessings for you,
