June 2018

Hope everyone is enjoying Spring. Today was somewhat cold here temp right now is 63 degrees Fahrenheit which is about 17 Celsius. I apologize if I have not been at your blogs for a visit. My eye doctor recommends that I spend very little time looking at screens. I have terrible dry eyes and now I have a beginning of glaucoma. I must avoid, computers, ipads and phones. This is sad since I do a lot in the computer and use my ipad a lot.
I got another embroidery kit from Alicia.
 I got Lantanas because I love how they look. I have a beautiful peach color that I didn't got in photos.

 I made a few bloomers for the granddaughter and used this pattern- bloomers.
 These easy and fun to make. I forgot to take photos of the previous ones I made and have sent to her.
 I really liked this recipe -  Veggie Crescent Bites
 I am still making soup since I love soup and we are still having some not so hot weather.
 Vacation bible school in a country church nearby.
 I got some of these vincas, such sweet pink color.
 This was the nursery we went to get our flowers.
 Got this for Mother's Day and have planted outdoors but not sure if it survive. Love that gentle pink.
 We have a new lawyer in the family!
 The Lilacs were looking so beautiful a few days ago when travelling.
 I finished the blanket to donate to church.


May you have a wonderful weekend, lots of sunshine, peace and quietness.
Hugs,

Angela

  1. I'm so sorry that you have troblues with your eyes. <3
    I also wish you all the best and many sunny days with blessings!
    ps. This May in Finland has been very warm, nearly hot. There were no rainy days at all and every day +20 to +28 C degrees.Also yesterday was +28 C degrees. I hope it would rain soon because the soil is so dry.

    1. Sorry to hear that, May is usually pleasantly cool in Finland from what I hear. Drought is no good for the economy, if it hurts the crops it hurts everyone. We pray for rain in Finland!

  2. I hope the glaucoma doesn’t worsen Angela. It can stabilize as it did for a relative of ours.

    Beautiful photos! You do great needle work of all kinds!

  5. Your needlework is just beautiful! I never learned to crochet and wished I had. Your soup looks so good and I think that is what I will make today for dinner since it's drizzly and a day we will stay inside. I am sorry to hear about your glaucoma and like a previous commenter I have heard the same thing, that it can stabilize.

    A sweet photo of the children in vacation bible school. My grand children go every summer and I enjoy watching the children as they have their performance on stage such as this one.

    1. The bad thing is the limiting screen time. Sadly there is no cure for glaucoma.

  8. So sorry to hear that your eyes are giving you problems. I really hope your symptoms improve. Those little bloomers are darling! I know they will look adorable on your granddaughter. I love the blue and white table runner with the embroidered flowers - it's so pretty. Hope you are having a nice start to summer. We've had three weeks of rain here in NC, but are forecasted for a warm, and sunny week ahead. We are heading to Charleston, SC for a vacation next week, so I hope the sunny weather continues.

  16. So many wonderful things happening in your world, Angela. Thanks for the peek. I do hope your eyes stabilize. They are watching me for the same. Getting older certainly comes with challenges, doesn't it?

  17. So sorry to hear about your eye issues Angela! My grandmother has glaucoma and macular degeneration and cannot see. She is legally blind and it is so hard on her. I hope that the doctors can help stabilize your eyes so they don't get any worse! I always enjoy the projects you share! You are quite talented! Your daughter will enjoy the little bloomers! The soup looks delicious. I hope warm weather comes to you soon, it has been in the 60s here too sometimes and I know what you mean, it does feel cold! Blessings!!

  18. Lovely to share all the sweet things going on in your life, Angela. The little bloomers and the needlework are so dear. I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis, but glad that you have caught it early. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Home-made soup is so comforting when it is cold. We are having a very cool and wet weekend and I am thinking of making some soup, too. The little ones at Bible study are so precious. Hugs and blessings xo Karen
