I finally finished sewing my dress today! I will try to remember to have one of my daughters take a picture of me wearing it tomorrow. This fabric was regularly $8.99 a yard but we got it on sale for $2.50. The difference in quality was substantial.
Our friend Chris and his wife Tina came over today to help us check on the honeybee hives.
Everything looked good.
The bees are ready for the honey flow in a month. I don't know...I just know that's a good thing!
This week I bought this coffeepot and pitcher at the thrift shop. I don't know how much I paid...I had an armful of stuff and the lady said $7, so I was very pleased! I planted Maggie's orange and chocolate mint plants in them. I got the idea from my friend Deb who puts her plants in water pitchers on her porch stairs. (Hers look so much better than my attempt!)

Our hearts are tender to the things of the Lord as we prepare for tomorrow's sermon.

Many blessings ~ Kathie

Hi Kathie! I'm very impressed with your coffeepot and pitcher! They look very nice!!

I've purchased my plants for my watering cans this season, but they haven't been planted yet on their side of the steps. The other side of the porch steps does have their flowers in them in pots. When all gets finished, I'll have to take another picture this year.
