Yesterday was one of those 'non-stop' kinda days...but I did manage to get lots done...that always makes me feel good! Toby got his stitches out...he is a much happier little camper with that stupid collar finally GONE! I mailed lots of goodies at the post office....got the new cloth paper scissors magazine (which I just love)...went to the grocery store....(we had a barbecue last night)....got lots done outside (still lots to do)....and 'in-between' I made this little bud vase out of a cigar tube...I just wrapped some copper wire around the tube...put some beads on it...added a hanger..a rose...and water...there you have it...
I plan on working outside today...at least until it gets too hot (supposed to be another warm one..in the 90's)...working on my 8x10 quilt for a swap...the theme is 'the secret'....and baking a cake...
When Andy and I cleaned out the front of the garage I found the old redwood patio furniture that my sister gave me years ago...I want to go out to Big Lots and see if they have any cushions...and then stop by Home Depot for some redwood stain so I can spruce it all up...(I just might wait until later in the week to do this)...What's everyone else doin on this glorious day?

Hay girlfriend~! Just hanging out, we are getting some high temps today, for us, about 26 so that is good.
Celsius...not farenheit!
And it is Olivia's birthday so we are taking her out of school to do some fun hiking things this aft.
Much love and that is a great cigar tube! Bud vase! xo

Wow vicci, you are one busy lady. Love the bud holder you made..how clever.

You sound like me, although it sounds like you accomplish what you set out to do, haha.

Today..I will have my grandson Cayden for the day. I plan on planting about five sweet brooms that need to get in the ground, and a few other miscellaneous plants. I saw a mouse in my bedroom so I definitely hope to do away with that cutie if I can because there could be many more..

I plan to clean my bathroom, and I really want to sketch out an idea that has been brewing...a landscape design thingy in my backyard...

And will I accomplish all that...probably not. The only thing I really really need to accomplish is eradicating that mouse.

Hope you have a fun and productive day. I just love your blog here...

p.s. Say hi to the clerk at Big Lots for me!!
