I always love getting goodies in the mail even when it is something I've ordered and expecting.  It is the anticipation of getting pleasant mail rather than bills and looking for the next hooking project.  Last week I placed an order to NotForgotten Farm's etsy shop and picked up two great booklets that I'd some how missed previously.  This was my nice mail today, not only the two booklets on the left but a great unexpected gift too.
The unexpected NotForgotten Farm Sheep logo tote made my mail even more special.  Oh, that booklet on the right side I already had so have no idea how the other two published in 2010 got past me.  Thanks for the tote Lori!

It is yard work weather again and am trying to prep my yard for grass cutting so today raked up another huge amount of pine cones and debris from my yard in yet another area.  Unfortunately yard work is going to eat into my rug hooking enjoyment. 

There was a time when it was great fun to pull weeds, plant flowers, do the mulching and cut grass.  Hmm, not so much fun anymore when it is me who has to do it all.  Would be fun to delegate some of that work out for me that is.

Tomorrow I plan to give an updated picture of either the geometric or the Red Bird of Pennsylvania.  Loops have been pulled on the Red Bird but no more loops pulled on the geometric since last posted.  Guess I've got to get my act together.

Today the temps hit 92 degrees and higher than usual for this time of year.  Tonight we will have storms come thru and even our first thunderstorm as I hear from the weathermen.  Must admit it has been nice to not have heat or the A/C..... YET.

Have a good evening everyone.
