A few weeks ago I did a post when my first grandson Redmond had a birthday. I thought I would share pictures today of little brother Samuel who is six years old. His middle name is after my dear nephew Paul whom we lost a few years back just before Samuel was born. My daughter Dory and Paul were very close and grew up together. Strange thing about Samuel. His head is the same shape as Paul's, he sometimes holds his mouth just like Paul did, he has lots of the same characteristics. Such a sweet reminder of my little Pauly.
Samuel and Grandma had a great time. We had gone to Borders and let him pick out a book. He picked out a Cupcake Cookbook complete with the cutest little apron. He had such a good time and then had to call and tell big brother all about baking with Grandma.
I've gotta go get the strawberries ready for shortcake! Have a fabulously wonderful Sunday afternoon!!!

Does she just sit quietly and watch Mommy work? Heck no!
Does she sniff around and calmly look at my flowers? Well if that's what you call laying in my bedding plants I just got at the nursery and haven't had the chance to plant yet!
Does she come when I call her? What were YOU thinking!
It's gonna be a long summer!
"I gotta blow this joint!"

Here is a picture of my BFF Nikki's quilt. It's made from her favorite 30's reproduction fabric.
This is a picture of our quilt group, The Busy Bees. The quilt on the left is Amy's and reminds me of a Navajo sunset.
The Busy Bees
Nanci, Amy, Wanett, Joey, Miss Jean, Cindy, Heather and BFF Nikki. Seated is Rose and missing are Debbie and Marion
We already have our next big adventure planned, a Lavender Lunch in June and there will surely be pictures to post and stories to tell.

White Camelia with a visiting bee
Now I know this doesn't look like much. However, it you look closely you will see that it is a fern - an Australian Tree fern. It has grown so tall that it covers my sewing room window which is on the second floor of my two story house! They usually don't grow this tall in our part of California. We had a mild winter so hardly any of the branches froze, either. Amazing!

Enjoy my view!
I'll be posting more pictures as time goes by. The title of my post is taken from the blog of one of my favorite authors, Susan Wiggs. I've spoken of her in previous posts. I love to read her books while drinking a cup of tea and looking out at my yard. Hop on over to her blog and give her a visit.

Last, but not least, is Ann! She's my main peep. Sweety bought her for me before we were married. That was over 40 years ago. I have her brother, also, which you'll get to meet later.
I hope you all had a fun filled weekend. I have a half busy, half restful week lined up. Hopefully I'll be able to get some yard work and sewing done. There's also a bavarian creme filled maple bar calling my name, so I gotta run! Bye!
