I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Lazy Days of Summer?

Not exactly!  lol!  DH has been on 2 business trips in the last 2 weeks, one DS is taking summer school at UT, and another is taking dual credit (HS and college) courses at the community college. 

I'm still walking every weekday morning...up to 4 1/2 miles now.  Sometimes I even run for little parts with the emphasis on little.  I hate the heat and humidity!  It must be paying off, though.  I had my annual exam with the doc yesterday and my bp is lower than I can ever remember it being.  I feel great too.  Yay!  The doc was happy and I was too.  I had to remind myself that when I trudged out this am b/c my walking buddy couldn't make it.  Did I mention it's hot and humid?

I've been stitching but can't show anything.  I'm finishing up a model and another piece for a gift.  It's nice to be on the "home stretch" for 2 projects.  Hopefully I'll at least have a progress pic of something else next week.

We've enjoyed watching a couple of birds building a nest right outside our back door.  I'm no expert on bird ID but I've been looking online and think they're a couple of barn swallows.  Last night we climbed a ladder and, with a mirror, looked into the nest to find that mama had indeed laid her eggs.  Then I carefully angled my phone to take the picture below.  I look forward to the babies hatching.  I keep a feeder full of seeds year round and enjoy watching the birds.

This Sunday we celebrate both Father's Day and our wedding anniversary.  Occasions such as this remind us how blessed we are to have those special people in our lives.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

(Did I mention it's hot and humid?)

Happy anniversary to you both. Sounds like you are having a busy time.
Looking forward to seeing your model stitching. I love the Summer stitching at the top of your blog.

I love to see nests with eggs in, it will be lovely watching them hatch and grow.
Happy weekend!

Happy Anniversary to you both! I am also a birdlover and have 6 feeders which I fill year round. I have some new baby cardinals and baby woodpeckers coming in. My Gui usually goes out but during this time of year he has to be mostly an indoor cat. Definitely do not want him deleting my bird population, lol
