This and That
Hello! I hope you all are doing fine this Friday morning, I sure am. I'm loving the green on my walks and the warmer weather. Of course a heat wave is coming so I'm soaking up the temperate temperatures while I can. Once it's 85 degrees, I'll be hiding in my house again. On our walk this week we saw a turkey vulture (above photo). I was pleased I could get a photo of him/her with my iphone, usually when I zoom in I lose the integrity of the composition.
I mentioned on Wednesday that I wanted to finish a cross stitch project within a week. I have over half of it done already so my goal is attainable if I work on it daily instead of knitting all the time. I'll keep you up to date on the progress. I spent way too much time shopping for frames online. It's so much easier to pop into a craft store and zip through an aisle and choose. I hope they ship the frame soon!

Yesterday Holly insisted on slinking by the ottoman assuming Frodo was sleeping under there. She was mistaken because he was snuggled under a blanket beside me! Of course there was an epic dog/cat chase and I thought that would be the end of the drama. Less than 15 minutes later, Frodo was back under the blanket beside me and she did the sneak by the ottoman (does she have a goldfish memory?) and sat behind us on the window sill.
There was peace among the wild kingdom for about 20 minutes, then there was another dog/cat chase. I think they love each other.

Wednesday is when we do our weekly grocery shopping and any other errands and that is my least productive day at home. This time we went to a remote greenhouse after the grocery run for some vegetable plants and enjoyed the country drive and the absence of customers. The owners were so friendly and I know I will be going back to their farm.
I find it funny that doing errands isn't what I consider productive. So yesterday when I woke up I wrote a creativity list and stuck to it no matter what. Prioritizing what is important tends to get me out of whatever rut I am in mentally.
I worked on my pink sweater, dabbled in watercolors and of course worked on the cross stitch project. I had a fun day!
I hope you are having fun with projects and enjoying nice weather as well.
