Crafts, packing, and hummingbirds.

It has been a crazy busy week for me. I have been gearing up for a trip to my dads in Hannibal Missouri. anyone going to be around in the next couple weeks let me know we can meet at the coffee shop! I have been making  some cups for him and my brother and it took all week as  I am not skilled on my cutting machine yet.

 

These are for dad I got him a lovely Medusa pepper plane  to go in the pot I made. He has been looking for the plant for a while. I found it and have been growing it for a month. Its looking lovely.

This is my Brother’s

I also made these labels and decorated Canisters for my son and his wife while we were learning. The canisters are recycled Folgers containers. They came into good use.

At least I get to sit at the table and look out into the rose garden this Rose Of Sharon tree has been  a great source of enjoyment all spring and summer. This spring I had cardinals and Blue jays peering in, Crazy bird chasing my cats now the hummingbirds busily buzzing about. (I tried to get a picture of the hummingbirds but I didn’t manage that.)

Now off to finish packing! I hope you have a great Holiday and I will try to post some photos while at dads. See ya soon!

Serenity Sunday ~~New family members

A few weeks ago when we was having the heavy rains and flooding my husband called me to his shop. outside under a pile of metal he found one of our outside strays with kittens. They were drenched and muddy. the mom is semi feral and hard to touch but she let us get the babies we were able to save two of the three. Meet Iris  (the mostly white one)and Calla Lilly the puff-ball). The other stray has a couple two but we can’t get near them.

The past month has been scary here. we have had high winds, tornadoes nearby and flood alerts.  The only damage I suffered was my greenhouse got blown apart. It can be fixed. bordering towns weren’t so lucky. There was a lot of downed trees and roof damage in the country areas.Our town sitting on the river had to worry more about the flood. A few older homes built directly on the ground had water seep inside. Most of us are used to this every year and prepare accordingly. We haven’t had to evacuate in several years. However, they did put in the seawall. Here are some pictures taken a week after the worst of it. This is at the river.

This is how close the water is to the seawall gates. it has receded a lot.

This is a little park by the river the Gazebo sits quite aways from the river and there is even a road that goes around that.

this is the other side of the park you can see the trees that separate the river. I didn’t have time to go to the casino side to get pictures we were in a hurry.

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day whether you are a mom(male or Female) to humans, furries or other babies.
