Berries & Beans in my back yard

All around the mullberry ...tree?
Ben discovered that we have mullberries in the side yard. I didn't know they grew on trees. Very pretty.
He made a really awesome home made mullberry lemonade.
This is my bean bush at it's finest point. Though they turned out to be one time harvest bush beans - instead of all summer viney beans...which is what I had hoped for.
Can't be too picky with a 'front porch bucket garden'

Angel Wing Lace

I found this pattern in a cool knitting magazine. Can't remember the name of it - the cover fell off. :) Seed stick around the edge and some pretty lacy through the middle.
I like doing lace, it's defiantly a step up in my skill - but you have to pay very close attention. Which is fine - however I do enjoy mindless projects.

Tally has has this thing about laying on stuff. So i lay out the blanket and she runs over the clam it her own...

Get off.

I like it. However after staying with the muffin girls, I'm not sure it's SUPER useful. Cute and yummy but.... More like a sunday snuggly. Ya know?
Don't worry. I've got a fun and crazy one in the works to balance the lace.

This last weekend I have the PRIVILEGE of staying with all 3 love muffins. It was a really good experience for me and I hope that I was a even a little bit of help. :)
Tried to take pictures of Lizzy. However the "Big" Miss has discovered the digital age. Up until this weekend, ya could take all the pictures ya wanted of her and she didn't have a clue of what was happening.

So ya see a picture perfect moment.... and ya slowly pull out the camera, hide it behind a pillow or jacket... like you're photographing wildlife...
....ssshhhhh.... do not disturb the toddler...
Ack! She's spotted me!
Then she's on her feet in a flash to run over and look at the picture and the screen on the camera.
Lemme see!!!!
Here is another one. All 3 girls were snuggling on the chair.... sloooowwwllly pull out the cameraaaa....
But she here's the 'ding dings' of the camera turning on..
Look out here she comes again!
I think about these Fetters Girls every day and hope they are holding strong :)
Love you!

That time of the year...
Graduation! Do you remember when you graduated from high school? Ben doesn't :)

This last week my brother Jake, Ben's brother Jordan, and my "little Sister" Jordan graduated. (Girl Jordan moved up into high school).
These are the grad day cup cakes..

Sadly, not too many people got to enjoy them. I took them to work and 'they got crashed' ...as my ma says.
.... going to take it easy on cupcakes this summer.... feeling the effects.... if you know what I mean :)

Bench Press a Reg

Weight lifting can be a beneficial addition to your regular work out. Be sure you pick out the right weights for your strength level.......

Align your shoulders and breath out and you press upward....
Slowly lower the weight in a smooth control motion - making sure the claws don't land on your neck
Do not let your weight shift positions before the set is over...
... or it might run away and hide....

Summer Sweater

Summer Sweater is a late Mothers day present. Mom wears sweaters all year round in the basement. This was a way cool project and a lot of firsts for me. I feel like I've leveled up! I've broken through into lace projects and a taste for circular needles.
Got the pattern from a shelby recommended web site - that's turning out to be a gold mine.

Aw. Me and Mom.
Closer view. It's a little big for my liking - but Mom likes her sweaters big. I did a little adjustments of my own - like extending the sleeves. Whacha think???

The journey ends today.
Girl Jordan graduates from 9th grade today. She has been talking to me about this day for 6 months! Big dreams of looking hot!
I've been working to get her a dress (for free), plus the cover up, necklace, and updo. She's pretty happy about it I think... what do you think? :)

..big sister needs a nap...

You won't believe this.....

I got this email through youtube today.....

My name is Angela and I work for morefocus group, inc. in Carlsbad, Calif. (http://morefocus.com). We are doing a promotion related to seasonal allergies and I'm looking for videos of cute sneezing animals as part of this promotion.

Obviously, your dog in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv14QT9mqfo) is cute and sneezing, so I was wondering if you wouldn't mind if I included your video in our materials?

If you have any questions or concerns in this regard, please contact me at (email address) or (858) ### ####.

Thanks for your time!


...no way....
