Just checking in....

I cannot believe summer is almost over!  Truly, it has flown by!  What have you been doing with your summer?  Me, I've been learning to knit!!!!  Because what else would you do in 95 degree weather, but create items to be used during 45 degree weather!

A new family member at The Veranda.....

Sometimes, I have an idea in my head of something I want for my house.  Something specific, with a specific price in mind.  Well, I was out shopping the other day, looking for this little item.  (I am searching for a tray to use on the ottoman in our den to corral the remotes, coasters, etc.)  I know the size, style, and even price that I want.  I have not been able to find it, but I will!

Anyway, I stopped into HomeGoods Sunday afternoon, seeking my tray.  Of course, I was unable to find just want I wanted.  But what I did find was........THIS!!!!

Welcome to the World!!!!

Look at this beautiful boy!  Lucas Paul was born Thurs. June 20.  He is my baby brother's son.  He weighs 8 lbs. 4oz, and is 21 3/4 inches long.  He is perfect in every way!

More gift-giving at The Veranda

See this?  I call it the ugly quilt.  I made it a little over a year ago with the intention of giving it to my daughter.  I love how the embroidery came out, but I hate the border.  What was I thinkin'?  So it has laid in my craft room, waiting to be loved.
