Just 1 more day of school and my work is done. YIPPEE!! Well, done for 10 days then summer recreation starts. Our summer recreation is growing, so many more children joining and we are happy about that. I have been spreading the word about all the fun we have and what a great program it is and lots have been signing up for it.
Had to share this picture of the cherries from my cherry tree. They are just yummy and this was the first picking. We have been getting a basket daily from the tree and leaving some for the birds too. We also have a bird feeder in the shape of an acorn that has hung there for about 3 years. A bird has made a nest in there and the babies are just so sweet. While we were picking cherries mama bird came back and gave us all heck. Oh she was so mad at us, so we stopped picking so she could go and take care of the babies. So now we pick when we are sure she is done feeding so we don't bother her and her little family. Wish I could get them to peek their heads out for the camera so I can share a picture with everyone.
I started a giftie for someone special with that yarn I bought. I love how its coming out. It is going to be a shawl and I am loving this yarn. I am so glad that I got it. I went back and bought the last 10 skeins they had so I can make myself one for the autumn too. I was so sorry that I didn't pick up more when I first got it. They had it in all sorts of colors on clearance, but someone got to it before me. I guess I was lucky to get what I got. Anyway would love to hear your opinions, what do you think??

Just for the fun of it yesterday I stitched on some more wash cloths and came up with these 2.  Aren't they cute?  I love how bright they are.  I gave them today to my friend Roseann who loves bright colors like this.   They are just so summery and cheery.
I have been having trouble with blogger.  Can't add pictures like I use to, I changed the editor to the old way but it still won't work so I had to get a picasa account, and then upload these pics to Picasa.  Not too bad but I sure wish that it would be fixed.  I am sure there must be an easier way but I just have not figured it out yet.   Love to all, Sharon

In the small sleepy town that I grew up in, we had a summer recreation program ran by local high school students. I looked so very forward to that. It was for 2 weeks and during that time we played and had good fun. The two special things I remember is the long bike ride we took each summer on the country roads of home and then the last Friday of the program was a big Gong Show. It was so much fun!

Your cherries look sweet and delicious :)
You shawl is gorgeous! And what fun wash rags :)

Ooooo, those cherries look awesome!!! We had a cherry tree for a few years. Every Spring it would be COVERED in baby cherries ~ then it would freeze and they'd all fall off. I think one year we did get two ripe cherries! A couple of years ago it rained so much it drowned the tree...we gave up and planted a Maple tree lol!
