Oh lovely weather, baking, birds chirping, garden overgrown, flowers popping up between the cracks in the pavement. Chooks way too noisy, weeds also popping up everywhere. And lovely surprise this morning when I found cherries on my baby cherry tree – just a few – but I can’t wait to show the kids. Just a couple of weeks left of school for the year, and we are busy practicing for the school concert, planning presents, anxiously looking at deadlines. I have no less than 5 parties to look forward to in the next couple of weeks, husband is away again for work in the midst of all the craziness, kids are upset that he is missing their end of year class graduation ceremonies – and I am a tad stressed – but sort of in a relaxed (can’t do anything about it anyway) way.

So things to do:

  • Support whipup and buy a calendar here (only $5). Read about the 2011 whipup calendar girls – Miss September is first off the rank.
  • Make a paperbag bag
  • Make some drawstring bags
  • Crochet the ellipse scarflette

    miss January, miss june, miss february, miss august, and miss september!
