John the Produce Man up at the farmers market says he will be selling 20# boxes of fresh sweet cherries this Saturday. They will cost $20. Not bad! Today was Ruthie's first day back at violin lesson since her broken wrist. Just in time for recital next week.
Today was a busy day for Lizzie. (See the dress she made?!) After violin lesson, Lizzie dashed off to play her 8 memorized piano pieces before a judge. She did very well, as expected. Great job, Lizzie! What did she do when she came home to unwind? Played piano for an hour!
I never got to show off the birthday gifts from this spring. Allen gave Lizzie this quiver to hold her arrows. She was tickled pink. She has it hanging in her room.
Sarah gave Lizzie a set of six wall peel-ons that are western themed. So now Lizzie and Ruthie have a western bedroom they can enjoy.
The only thing about their bedroom that I can't stand is that they both hang their cowgirl hats on their bedposts...for me to knock off when I sneak in to kiss them goodnight. I gave Allen a brand new Volcano stove that came with many extras. I was so tickled to find this gem at the thrift shop. I looked up the entire set online and found my $5 find was worth $156! Sarah also bought her gift at the thrift shop. Everyone wanted this lamp in their room!
I found this shade for 15 cents and painted it an antique red to look like this:
Not bad! My five sailors came home from Virginia having passed their boating course. Right now everyone is outside trying to find Moab the Muscovy who has been missing all day. Fortunately we haven't seen any signs of a fox...so far. Lizzie is as sad as the other lone muscovy. As much as that duck is a bother, we still are praying for her to return home safely...for Lizzie's sake.
Enjoy your week. Many blessings ~ Kathie
