Great Days

Friday was my birthday. It was a great day and it has been a great weekend. Fun with friends and family and spent a lot of time relaxing with my boys. Henry (6 years old) gave me a card he drew himself in secret - with little swirls and spirals that he knows I love. Calvin (3 years old) gave me a big hug - extra squeezie. My sweet husband surprised me with a new lens for the camera - so I can take close-ups of bugs, leaves and the like. It is suddenly chilly here - so I hope to see at least a few more bugs - but they are quick becoming scarce. I have had fun playing around with it - much more to come - I am just figuring it out. That is my Henry's eye - I have always told him his eyes look like kaleidoscopes.

And I have been stitching a lot on the beetles - more about them soon...


  1. Happy belated birthday. Sounds like it was a good one.

  2. Hey, HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the other day!
    Nothing like swirly birthday cards and extra squeezie hugs, I say! You're right, your son has kalidoscope eyes, beautiful, maybe that's where those lovely swirls come from? I love how your beetles shaped up in the last post, and can't wait to see more! You'd love the bugs we have where I live...maybe!
    So gald I found your blog :)
