Cookout fun

Wow! I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted! I haven't been going to yard sales lately.....just lost my mojo! Not as much fun as it used to be! Anyway, we had our annual cookout yesterday because our entire family is going to Tennessee next week for vacation. That should be interesting! But we are all excited and can't wait. Craig and Holly had to go out of town for work, so Della, Maxel, and Amelia weren't able to attend. They were so disappointed as were we.
I "stole" a few pictures from Facebook of the kids having fun.





 This little cutie let me talk, hold, and kiss him more than he ever has before! He sat between me and his mama and shared his potato chips with me.









 Declan found the mud that the water slide made!



Pool fun....









 Declan did a little "streaking".....






 Don't you love their innocence and 'no shame'?



We had a few fireworks when it got dark and then everyone went home, but not looking forward to having to get up and go to work the next morning!

Saturday

Micki and I went to a church and a community yard sale this morning. We only stayed in York, so we were done by 9:15. This is all I got at the church yard sale...50 cents!
Community yard sale was much better. I found a size 3X camo hoodie for Justin for $5....
Rolls of toile` wallpaper $2.....
Indoor/outdoor stair treads $2......I have a fear of falling since my back injury....
Golf ball trinket box $2......
Box of forks $3..............I seem to have "misplaced" quite a few (or somebody else has!)
I was looking for a TV stand for Sloan's room and found one for $40! He has my old 42" TV and the entertainment center he has was not made for larger TV's.
I haven't been to a thrift store in weeks but after making a donation, I found these beautiful parrots for $5....

I have a new great-nephew, born June 5th. Meet my brother's first grandchild, Jethro Heath.
He met his great-grandma Friday.....
As for crochet, I've been working with thread for a change. I made this doily with some pearl cotton (peach color) that I had an excess of. Pattern is from Leisure Arts leaflet 2502, Pineapple Doilies Book 2. 7 Designs by Mary Werst. This is the first pattern in the leaflet.....

Still working on the Nuts About Squares CAL....
I'm sort of getting tired of this CAL. Too slow for me.....I don't like waiting!
I discovered that I can watch YouTube on the TV in the living room! What a great thing.....I just wished it would work on my TV in the bedroom, but right now, it only works on the Hopper and not the Joey's! Bummer! Have you ever watched the foreign language ones and tried to figure out their pattern? Takes me a while but I figure them out! I took pictures of certain steps so I could refer back to it. This particular pattern is a puffy entrelac pattern. I WILL DO IT!
Vacation is almost here.....two more Saturdays left!!!
