Sunday morning ramblings...

Good morning.. hoping this will post... blogger has been soooooo annoying.. followers here.. then gone..ooh there they are back posting some times yes.. then no.. very tiring.... We have had a week of rain and very cool weather.. actual frost the other night.. everything has perked up nicely though except for 1 peony and the gerber daisy I got for Mother's Day... Someone really needs to get out here and get all the grass out of the rock
Otherwise just been working and trying to stay warm.. did paint all friday afternoon.. can't remember the last time I had a friday off.. and we didn't pick Chaya up until saturday afternoon... so here's a pic of one of the things I finished.... was very happy and felt so good to just hang out and paint.. will really have to do that more often...

This post has taken all day to write.. we've been busy busy.. all the garden.. such as it is (but that is a whole other is planted.. flowers planted.. I have holes everywhere.. and everything has been watered and rewatered.. one of the tools in the little canvas gardening tote I got Chaya .. has a watering can/sprayer on it.. have no idea how many times it was
Anyways.. off to bed for me.. am sure she will be up bright and Hope everyone had a lovely day and thanks for stopping by.. will catch up on everything asap...


  1. Love the cute little sheep! Glad you were able to get out in the garden. I had to laugh at the watered, then rewatered. Its been so rainy here, the last thing we need is to go out watering. We have standing water everywhere because it has nowhere else to go. Crazy wet! It looks like she was enjoying her watering!!! I'm sure you had a bunch of fun with her. Have a great day!

  2. Love your painting style, Kath. I always enjoy seeing what you're working on. Chaya is so adorable in the polka dots and boots! I hope your weather has straightened out. It's a rare Memorial Day weekend down here this year in that it's actually hot and steamy enough to go swimming. We went pretty much straight from cool and wet to HOT!

  3. lol Brandy.. same here.. is sooo wet nothing needs watering but...can't stop her... she loved it... thanks..glad you like my sheep.. yup still water standing here too...
    thanks Ann... cold and windy here again this morning.. looks like rain.. have the heat on this morning.. lucky you ..nice weather..
    Enjoy the last day of your long weekend ..Brandy and Ann...thank you..xx

  4. Well I will try posting again, ARGH
    Chaya looks so intent on her watering job, LOL
    Finally you have green grass Kathy, what is up with that? It is sunny and warm, another weather man prediction gone wrong.
    Enjoy the weather and time with Chaya.
