Sunday Sevens #87

After some sporadic posting lately, my Sunday Sevens post is ready early. So early, in fact, that it was nearly titled Saturday Sevens, but that seemed a teeny bit boastful, don’t you think? If you’d like to know more about Sunday Sevens, pop over to Natalie’s blog, Threads and Bobbins, and check it out. It’s fun, easy, and anyone can join in.

Street Work

The City worked on our street for over a month to relocate the gas meters from the basements to new outdoor locations. Our tiny fence is countersunk so deep they couldn’t drill next to it to install the line; they had to go under the sidewalk instead.  IMG_6917Digging up the sidewalk was messy, but they poured a brand new one.

A day to dry, and our beautiful new sidewalk will be ready!

Around the Neighborhood

Our city has many, many interesting sculptures. This one took my fancy.

These are my favorite. Aren’t they spectacular?

Mother’s Day

IMG_6876Took mama out for dinner at a little bistro. We each had a fresh and fabulous salad, and took home this exquisite little pizza for tomorrow night. Yum!

A little outing

IMG_6937This is Jenny and she’s just had her very first haircut. She was a patient client, with a patient, gentle shearer. Isn’t she pretty?

This wool was from the first of 14 alpaca shorn; it is soft as a cloud. Stuff of dreams.

RecipesIMG_6811IMG_6815

Just added a few shreds of Romano cheese, a sprinkle of fresh parsley, and voila! A meal in minutes. Absolutely delicious!

They are not afraid

IMG_6807Out for a drive to a nearby park, we encountered a group of deer (poorly photographed). They watched as we slowed to a stop, and sauntered on up to greet us! Perhaps they are accustomed to receiving treats from travelers.

New fabric

And a new tunic is in the works.

That’s all folks! Hope you all have a most wonderful week.
