A gift from an oral surgeon's office for our office.
The tooth is embedded with Forget-Me-Not Seeds.
I planted them.
It has been wet and cold.

Jana Dee

New member of the family, she is a 25 foot Bayfield sailboat.


Just took these photos in our backyard, we have had heavy rain overnight and this morning. Maybe, a lighter rain, now.
I went to town for a couple errands and groceries, on the the way home, a neighbor had decoys floating in his yard puddle.

LYS Tour

For the last 5 years, a group of yarn shops get together to sponsor a tour weekend. It was May 20-23, this year, included 25 shops from Birch Bay to Kent. At each shop, you get a free pattern, which can be knit, (some crochet patterns, too) from a single skein (ball) of yarn. The yarn that each shop used for their project is discounted 10%. If you go to every shop and get your passport stamped, it is faxed into the central shop for the big prize drawings. I went to 14 of the 25 shops, this year and won a daily prize at the Oak Harbor shop. I went and picked up my prize, today. Later in the day, I got a haircut, maybe I should have reversed the order and looked better for the picture.
LYS = local yarn shop

spring 2008, Nicole and Meggen lounging on the couch.

Two weeks ago, Jeff and Julie went on a fund raising motorcycle ride. As Jeff called the ride "riding for Rover", it benefits their local humane society. Nicole loved animals. Meggen was adopted from our local humane society. Jeff and Julie are planning this ride, as a yearly event to honor Nicole and her love of animals.

May Day

Happy May Day

This is post number 500. My surprises for post # 500 are still in process. Thinking a random gift or pay it forward gift.

Big news: Sock Summit dates were announced for 2011, July 28 through 31, 2011 in Portland. Sock Summit 2009 was so much fun.

Gary and I went to dinner, this evening at our favorite coffee and sandwich shop, Vanilla Swan.
Of course, Meggen went along for the ride. On our way home, saw a partial rainbow with bright colors.
