Remember...

We remember those who served...those who returned....those who left a part of themselves to preserve freedom. Each day that I hear the jets fly over head leaving and returning to Luke Air Force Base here in the West Valley of Arizona, I say a thank you. It is a sound of my freedom that I hear. My dad served during Pearl Harbor, my husband/Mr H served in Germany during the Viet Nam era...  my son Eric was in the  reserves during Desert Storm and my son Dennis, an artist raised money for the effort.....  proud of them for their contributions.
Have a great day....

Leak fixed .... maybe

Well, it may just be that the pipe and gasket were just loose..... it seems to bit tight enough now and the leak seems to be dried up. We will wait and see.
I was not idle yesterday...more on the Lavender's blue... no pic though. And there is aother ornie waiting to be completed.......
I added beads to this one.... it is JBW design and I plan to use the green fabric for the backing.  There just is not enough hours in the day or days in the week for me. I looked at the calender today and felt surprised to see the date as the 9th! Where is time going?
The temps are wonderful .... cool and wonderful. The birds are enjoying their seed and water from the birdbath. I did however find a pair ... a MR & Mrs House Finch leaving a wall sconce that is on my lanai. It contains some artificial fern as it gets little bright light so that is what would grow! I will have to see if they plan on setting up housekeeping.
Well, my tea is ready to pour and my needle is waiting..... so glad you stopped by today....
Oh, I find another new friend has signed on with me...she is very new to blogging and seems to need some kind words...you might want to visit Amanda. Enjoy your day.....

A house complete...but I found a leak~~~

Well, I have tried to stitch on Lavender's blue....

The house is now complete. The windows and door are in place not a moment to soon. The weather has definitely change here...I am actually wearing socks! Autumn with it's own display has arrived. Here in the Valley we do not get very many tress whose color will change. For that you need to ride to the high country about 1 to 2 hours North. Instead we can plant our vegetables and roses will bloom again and many flowers too.
The leak... oh no...not with Lavender's blue house. My very own kitchen! Not too long ago I thought something spilled under the sink... could not find out what it could be so of course being me I ignored it. If Mr H had been himself.....and knew of it, he would have investigated. Any how, this morning I found some  wetness under the sink...and sure enough I see where is is coming from. Now any other time Mr H would find a wrench and check it out... but I think I will be needing a plumber. I am learning of the many things I will be doing that I did not have to think about before. Last week it was repairs to the car...this week plumbing. And yes, I have been cooking and doing some yard work.... I could always do these tasks, just did not have to. I have been very spoiled. My time to try to make things easier for him.

It seems lately  I can not get to post. Oh, not because I have nothing to share, but I just have other issues to take care of. Mr H is going for yet another medical procedure... date to be determined. It just has not been very easy for him. There seems to be no end to this. So while I wait for the doctor's call I will stitch. The landscapers are here... do you think they can help get Lavender's blue lawn started????
Hope you have a good day......
