Sunday Saunter

Hello everyone! 

I'm happy to report that I am currently clicking away on a wireless keyboard.

Although the computer repair shop we normally go to still hasn't re-opened, one of the technicians was able to come to our house yesterday.  He wasn't able to find a keyboard replacement in the market, so for now, I am wireless; and if I'd known how inexpensive it was to be so, I would have gotten one of these weeks ago.

I'm also happy to report that full on walking weather is back, with daytime temperatures below 100 F and nights dropping into the 70's.  Woohoo!  That makes me very happy indeed.
Last night I did a little cross-stitch of some bees so took it along with me for a photoshoot.
The bees are loving the lantana right now.
It's always a lovely time of year when the weather is mild and color is returning to gardens.
I found a curtain ring while wandering so brought it home and transformed it with cross-stitch and crochet. Even the ribbon is recycled.
Well, it's late and our internet is going super slow so this post is taking longer than expected.
I'll leave you with a little love.
Have a blessed day!

It's so good to hear from you Tammy. Love your sweet little bees and how neat that you were able to recycle the shower ring.
It's COLD here today with teens predicted by weeks end. I think it could be a long,cold and snowy winter. Hopefully we're cozy and warm here in the RV.
Enjoy your ability to get outside and walk again and take care of yourself my dear friend.
Blessings,B

Dearest Tammy,
So good to read you here again and to see that the weather is so favorable right now.
Those lantanas look lovely and makes the bees very happy.
Your embroidery is so lovely and especially that recycled curtain ring you used to transform into a very special gift.
Sending you hugs, also from my eldest Barty, he's 16 and 7 months as of yesterday the 17th... He's not well.

How wonderful to be able to walk around and enjoy the beautiful flowers and bees. Lantana blossoms always remind me of Fruit Loop Cereal with their various colours. Your cross stitch projects are so cute!

What a great use of a curtain ring it looks so pretty as does your cross stitch. How nice to be able to get out in beautiful warm weather and resume your walks. My son says the weather in Qatar is perfect right now fingers crossed I'll be able to visit him this time next year and experience it for myself. Have a great week. xx

So good to have you back here Tammy, although I follow your daily treasures on Instagram. Absolutely in love with the bee embroidery!

So good that you're able to get your walking in again. I love your little travels. You're a window into a different world. How are your boys doing?

Nice to read and see your update, Tammy. Lovely photos and crafts. :) I might start back up on my granny square blanket that I began earlier this year now that our weather is cooler, though I'm still enjoying my morning walks outdoors even though it's in the 30s some mornings. So long as the wind isn't blowing, it's lovely for walking even in the cold.

Hi Tammy, it was nice to see a post from you, I love the cute bee and flower stitchery. It turned out very cute. Will you hang it on the wall or? We are at the beach for a few weeks.. the waves are roaring outside our trailer. I love it! Adventures await tomorrow! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Dearest Tammy,
On Monday morning we went with Barty to vet Amanda. She gave us prednisone (steroids) in a tablet, to be halved each day and antibiotics from a dropper twice a day. He's not eating well and it takes enormous coaching for him to eat a teaspoon full of food + pill and dropper liquid. Yesterday at first went rather well but not in the evening. I fed him again at midnight, at two and five in the morning... Now he is outside on the lawn, wearing his new harness that Pieter bought him this afternoon. He loves to lounge on the lawn... so we let him. After my tea with mixed unsalted nuts and rice cake I will take him inside, to our Rose Suite where he lives with me...
Not easy but we try to do our very best!
Big hugs,
Mariette

Great to hear you have a wireless keyboard set up.

Lovely pics, as always, Tammy. Such a pity that Lantana is seen as a noxious weed here in Queensland — they have such pretty flowers.

The bees cross-stitch is beautiful! What an amazing transformation of the curtain ring — so pretty!

I hope you are enjoying a beautiful week ~ Hugs
