A Good Monday!

Again, Thanks to all of you who take time to read my blog.  I love to read your comments!! They make me smile!  Well, today was a good day.  First, I got the house all cleaned that is with the SBA's help.(Yes, he loads pictures on my blog and helps me clean!!) We are having a few friends over for the 4th , so I have started planning.  The next good thing was getting my first package for the Lizzie Kate Halloween Mystery Sampler.  I love the fabric and the threads.  I think this is going to be a fun stitch.  Plus, I think I can easily get part one done before part two arrives! The final good thing involves a plant.  At the store yesterday, I saw a plant called "Bombshell."  It is a hydrangea paniculata.  I came home and looked it up as it is suppose to be a dwarf with tons of flowers. It looked like something I would really like so I went back today and bought one.  So you see, it doesn't take too much to make it a good day!!


 Here is the package with the Halloween Mystery Sampler.

 "Bombshell"




 I finally got the tuberous begonias in the window box.  These flowers always make me think of my Dad.  They were his favorite flower.




I hope your Mon. is going well!
