From here...

The photo in the previous post was a cropped portion of this photo...a close up of a goose belly...I am not sure why I did not zoom in closer with this photo instead of cutting it off like this. 
Have been on the go most of the day...after therapy, fixed a late breakfast, stopped for a little bit to watch a sewing show.  Then the running began.

We went to Menard's to pick up a few things...ended up with a new sink and faucet.  Which we needed, but had intended to wait a bit.  And Roger picked up a few things he needed in his shop....but they did not have the size bandsaw blade he needed so left there to go to Harbor Freight.  Stopped and ate a bite...then to one of the greenhouses.

I had called to see if they had brandywine tomato plants but didn't think to ask if they were selling them by single plant or in the little 4 down there and they were the singles.  So, just picked up some other tomatoes.  I am hoping to get to an Amish greenhouse in Parke County.  Maybe they will have them.  I am so disappointed.

While there, we did pick up 3 hibiscus plants, and a foxglove...Roger planted everything when we got home.   The hibiscus are the kind that blooms later in the summer so we will be looking forward to that.

No sewing at all today, but am getting closer to having my current quilt top finished.  I just have to cut the borders and get them sewn on. 

Take a guess at what this is...

I would say that some of you will easily guess what this is a photo of...or part of a photo.  But just thought I would see for sure. 
I am sitting here watching a cardinal under the feeders, looking at the blue sky, and watching the the wind in the trees while waiting to go to therapy...wishing I had it all done and over with.

I was talking to Sarah yesterday when Lorelei and her dad got home.  The evening before Lorelei had told Jeremy 'I know what we can do tomorrow...we can go wash your car and go to the library.'  She said it several times.  So guess what...she got up with that on her mind and they had to do that.  She was chattering and giggling so I could not understand half of what she said...just so excited and happy to have her dad home for a change.
The house wren is back.  It has been checking out a gourd I have hanging on the wisteria vine.  I have seen it go in and out it several times so am hoping it finds a mate and they build in it.  Not quite the music of a Carolina wren, but still a very happy little bird.
I am re-reading An Untamed Land by Lauraine Snelling.  It was free on Amazon, so could not resist it.  But now I am wanting to read the rest of the series it is from, The Red River of the North.  I have read both this series and the Return to the Red River series.  Both very good.  I have read others by her and liked them, but not near as much as these.
