Day Three, On Our Own

We had the day to ourselves today, so we decided to drive up the Keys.  We saw this Bike Sculpture at a Recycle Bike Shop.  Thought the store was going to be about reusing bikes, but it wasn't.

Week Three of On The Edge

Working on the blanket stitch around the edge of the pillowcase.

Getting Ready

Packing the "Martha" way in zip-loc bags actually works.  Compresses everything so there is more room.  Especially important when packing for an 8-day trip in only a carry-on bag.

New for spring. Beautiful sunny and warm Sunday.  I found these out by the lamp post in the middle of our driveway garden.

Chosen Yarn

After a vote among three impartial participants (Pam and 2 customers at, this is the color that became the victorious winner. I think it is an eye-popping color and will look amazing on the pillowcases.

Monday, Monday.

It has been such a cloudy and foggy Monday, that I thought I would post another flower picture from the Conservatory.

As Seen in the Conservatory

Waiting for our own ferns to start growing in the woods.  They are so beautiful when they are unfurling.

Saturday Surprise

Doug surprised me with a trip to the Como Park Conservatory today.

Went for a walk down to Mom's this morning, and Barkley walked back with us. He LOVED it!

This has become a very bad habit that Doug and I have let Cooper do.  At first it was just licking the dishes, but this four-footed in the dishwasher stuff may have to be stopped!!

Getting Ready for Ben's Birthday

Ben turns 17 on the 5th, so Doug prepared this weekend by wrapping his presents and putting them somewhere where Ben couldn't reach them.  I think Doug's goal was accomplished!
