This time of year is busy for us. There is wood to cut and stack and let dry out for next year. There is a garden to plant and places to go to get mulch and fertilizer and fun things like that.  Flowers are raising their cheery heads, and they, too, need some looking after.

We attend the little town Memorial Day parade, and we listen to speeches, and give thanks to God for the men and women who serve and have served our great country.

I sew, late at night, hoping to not wake up my Buddy, because his teeth are bothering him, and
I need him to sleep. (Apron soon to be up for sale)

I spend some moments creating new looks, like this ruffled, shabby-chic looking, apron. (Also soon to be up for sale.)

We are getting used to another change in our lives: Daddy is working nights, so mornings are more hectic and upsetting, because Mama is busy trying to hush little people who have so many morning thoughts and last night's dreams to share. I am priviledged to get to hear them.  Buddy thinks that having Daddy home in the morning is the best thing ever, and spends the morning climbing up and down the stairs to try to wake his favorite toy.

So I work, trying to get my little things finished. I still need to have my sweetie help me with figuring out how to upload pictures to my Etsy shop...unless there is some wise person out there who wants to give me a hint of how to make it work!

Are your picture files too big? I have to re-size all of mine before I put them on Etsy. Do you have a way to do that on your picture program?
