Last Saturday, I met my SIL Amanda at a women’s event in Tifton sponsored by the local hospital. A lot of the topics were things we already knew about like canning, but Amanda loved seeing Joann Fabrics’ table with the crochet items. She wanted to sit down and ask the instructor how to do a particular pattern. I sat down and the instructor asked if I wanted to learn. My mama, Mrs. Desiree, and Amanda have all tried to teach me how at one time or another and I just assumed I was a lost cause. I gave it another shot and quickly learned how to make a foundation chain and how to add a second row. It’s not a masterpiece, but I did it myself. I don’t think my lack of understanding before was anything more than needing to be in the right frame of mind.
After the women’s event, I stopped at a yard sale. I scored this brown basket with burlap bows and a pair of what I thought to be men’s lace up Crocs for my nephew Ben. Apparently, I can’t tell the difference between a 6 and a 9. So Ben ran out of luck and I got a new pair of garden shoes. I love this little hand-painted sign I picked up too. It’s perfect for my back door.
Here is my basket in the kitchen loaded up with squash Jake and Ben grew and a cabbage I cooked up for supper.
After the yard sale, we headed out to Wendy’s house for Emma’s 9th birthday party. The kids had a blast on the water slide and in the pool.
We like to joke that Ella is Wyatt’s girlfriend. These two have so much fun together!
