How was your weekend? The weather here was wonderful. I started out by trying to finish getting some frames painted. I take them outside to spray on a clear sealer when the paint is dry. You can see I had a lot of help. This little cross-stitched flea market find was only a couple of bucks, but I didn't like the gold frame. It is very old and I was afraid to try to take it apart, hence the blue tape to keep the paint off the glass.
It's fun to zoom in on the planes streaking across the skies high overhead. I always wonder where the passengers have been or where they are headed. A few times, I've wondered if my son was on one of them as he travels quite a bit for his job. However, this weekend he was home for an overnight visit. We grilled outside and had a good visit.
I saw this little nest dangling from a nearby redbud tree, so I brought it down and saved it. Maybe I'll think of something to do with it after it is debugged.
The birds are busy with their parenting chores or maybe they're still sitting on the eggs. I've seen several of the beautiful bluebirds around our bird houses lately.
At the end of the day, there was a bit of laundry to do. Truman decided the door left open on the dryer was an invitation to look inside. Or maybe he was just looking for a spot to escape from the thunder the storm blew in last night. We had quite a round of lightning, wind and rain.
Note: In answer to a question about my brown outfit in Friday's post. Yes, that was good old double-knit polyester! You couldn't wear that stuff out. I did like that it didn't wrinkle, though. I think my mother made that outfit. She was, as well as my grandmother and aunt, quite a good seamtress.
Until next time...
