Sunday Sevens – Week 7 for me

Hi everyone, here is this week’s Sunday Sevens, a little ode to randomness that doesn’t merit a whole post. For info about Sunday Sevens, please pop in to see the creator, Natalie, over at Threads & Bobbins. There are no real rules, just sharing of seven(ish) pictures. It’s easy and fun, won’t you join us?


This was a rather less productive week than anticipated, but still have a few shots to share with you.


A peaceful start to the day; coffee on the porch, watching the neighborhood waking up. And what is that glistening in the sunlight? It’s a spider web, and the spider is spinning! We watched her run around and around the inner circle of this web (so fascinating and rare). Here she is back at the center. As the morning progressed, the fragile web all but disappeared – it was as if we happened into a most magical secret.



And…..a lively start to another day. I feel good! I knew that would now!  Who can come into James Brown’s Place and not start singing? I had a traditional egg and English muffin breakfast which came with home fries – chunky hash browns, with touch of parsley. Hubby had yam and chorizo hash. A bit spicy for me, but it was fabulous! New place for us, a great little diner – not fancy, just great food. Good stuff.



Apron is nearly done. Here is evidence of construction beginning. Must get a move on to finish by end of August. (that would be tomorrow – yikes!)



Tucked away in what may become my sewing room is my mama’s old knitting bag. This bag has been around longer than I have (and that’s a pretty long time). Last time I saw it in use she was crocheting blankets for her little grandchildren (oh, they’re all grown up now). Mama gave it to me when she was downsizing to move in with my sister a couple of years ago. A treasure.



We went to baseball for the first time in a few years. The Rochester Red Wings, farm team for Minnesota Twins. This fellow greets incoming fans.



Good game, Red Wings won handily, and  following the game was a very impressive fire works display! Sorry, this picture is pretty smoky.



That’s all for today. Wishing a grand week for everyone!
