Margaret, I am going to try to be a better blogger. And knitting just takes practice, like anything else.

What a lot of fun. I have to admit that I have never thrown a graduation party of any sort for any of my kids. You're making me fell guilty...

I helped carry the stuff from the dorm room to the car, and then from the car into the kitchen, but Ross is going to have to do the rest. Glad he's home, though.

I miss lots of the old magazines, too. I have every single issue of Mary Englebreit's, btw. I just got my Oprah magazine today, which I still love. I only read People when I go on airplanes (the better to distract me). I get a couple of Photography magazines. And I get National Geographic Traveler, which is great for dreaming of travel.

My garden is so lovely right now but is making my nose all stuffy. I am terribly allergic.

Looks like the graduation was wonderful. Last year when Bonnie graduated from Colgate, we all got soaked! Congrats!

I don't know if I should be happy for you and sad for your kid. No one likes to be sick, right? But glad that you could get more time off. And it is such a joy to be with the kids. I miss it.

We have had family staying here for the past three days, and tonight we get another guest for the rest of the week. It is fun but also stressful. I think I am just getting really old.

Sounds like you had a fantastic time. It's so hard to go back to real life, I know. Hope the new week isn't awful...

I like your attitude (and your choice of prints). I think spaces need to personal and pretty.

Thanks, Loretta. It was actually raining when I took this picture. I just put down the car window, pointed, and shot it...amazing that anything decent came out of the shot, but there you go: serendipity!

I did see the movie last year, and I did enjoy it. But I like the book better.

I know so many people who are sick right now. I hope this passes soon and that you feel better.

I am always overwhelmed at this time of year with too many gardening choices. I prefer to duck my head into fiction. I am currently just loving Brideshead Revisited.
