The cards are a perfect idea to put into a library book or hand to a clerk at the grocery (or anywhere). They will make someone's day!
The roo is darling, but that Ginnie is such a character and couldn't be more sassy looking! Go, girl!

So close on the blanket and the baby! You're life is always so full and interesting. Ducky is going to be one handsome trailer home!

That little spot of color would be such a lovely welcome when you come back to your home in "the north".

I agree with Honore´'s in interesting it was Tennessee? Thank you for sharing all of this important information. I see several rabbit holes (which will be fun after being without internet for 2 days!).
I have also been thinking of rereading Charlotte's Web or Stuart Little for my Bingo card. Little Women and Matilda also come to mind. I usually order my stamps on-line and was sending about 100 postcards a month, but, as you might guess, many postcards are not delivered. BUT, what surprised me (until recently) is that it was a US problem! So, I'm sending fewer cards as the pipeline opens again. What I was getting at is I should get my Ruth Asawa stamps today!

I hope your PO delivers pre-orders faster than mine! I have better luck if I wait until day of release and then order. Seriously, they come a days faster!

The poem feels so right and your story of the woman (who I hope it doing well) is marvelous. They remind us to be present now and that now is full of so much light and life. Have a lovely weekend, Kym!

I've had my eye on the two you have waiting in the wings. I like Blue Cozy kits very much. I've got a big AC project (which doesn't get much love) and a sweater (and sock) on the needles. I think stitching will go by the wayside for now. It is nice to know we have the "talents" to do any craft that strikes our fancy!
Those kids could make anyone smile! They are entertaining and SO creative! I wonder where they get that from! LOL

So disappointing, but I'll bet that just means more lake time (and that's a win!)!
I wouldn't have thought a place like that still existed!! How fun and cool!!

I have stayed away from Doomscrolling fairly easily, but I find myself just scrolling the hours away! So, I have been strict with myself found more happiness and a calmer self. If I scroll I look for yarn, household upgrades, and books (even though I rarely buy anything).
(I am SO behind.) I can't find my copy of Aimless Love anywhere! How can that be? Where, oh where, can it be? At least my LBS has a copy and I'm going to get another as one must have a number of Billy Collins at ones figure tips. Thank you for the reminder to read more BC.
Great news!

I hope they are safely in their new home and that all goes smoothly for them from now on out! They are the epitome of "go with the flow"!

Here's hoping the tree is otherwise in good shape. It doesn't look like one you would like to lose! I'm so glad the drama wasn't a melodrama and hope that all's well that ends well.
I LOVE this row! Your color choices make me so happy and this project is so fun to watch!

Thank you for the information on how to use a public restroom. I've been planning my trips around town by how much time I can be away from a bathroom. So far I haven't had to use any but my own. Rachel Cargle is what who we all need now.
WHO?? I seriously don't know who Tom Nook is, but a quick Google and now I understand. How close are we to seeing this ponytail?
Your little houses just make me so happy! It must be the bright colors. They look sunny, joyful and fun, like a little town you'd love to live in! I'm another Feedly fan (have been since Google Reader died).

You do great work and you would never known Rusty had his hair cut at home. Nicely done. Smith has resorted to a total buzz (easy and quick for a professional to do). He doesn't want to cut his own and he doesn't dare let me touch it. Your little houses are SO cute.

It didn't take long for your garden to "age" into a lovely place with so many lovely spaces. To walk through your garden would really be delightful.
I have cut my own bangs every couple of weeks for months now. I have decided not to visit my stylist because...why would you!? So many of my friends have given in and gone, but I am going to see how long I can get this mess (I'll happily cut the bangs). There are SO many articles about the state of our National response, but the person(s) who SHOULD be listening has his head up his *$$. I can't even... We loved Hamilton! It was going to come back to SLC this year and we had an in to get tickets. Oh well...maybe some days, but ITMT I am LOVING the ability to watch it again and again. Smith confessed he had an earworm of the Kings song! LOL
