Ohio Paradise

Ohio really is the perfect place to live! The weather is so gray and gloomy for four months of the year that we REALLY appreciate it the rest of the time! On Sundays Larry and I like to take a long walk to admire God's handiwork. Today my friend Maxine invited us to breakfast since we were walking right by her house. Don't you love her giraffe tea kettle? I made the wall hanging for her, and then forgot to take it! I'll drop it off soon.

Her wall looks like a quilt! She just spent the last six months remodeling her kitchen, and was excited to show it to us. When you do the work yourself it takes a long time, but her results are fantastic.

Just a short walk from her house, Larry and I came upon this bridge. Neat, huh? There are no supports from underneath, and it sways a bit when you walk on it. I don't think I'd take a very big group across at one time!

Mmmm...our first watermelon of the season. Would you like a slice?

I hope you have a happy week, and have a bit of paradise where you live, too.

That watermelon looks just right, I'm sure you could FedEx me a slice, right ? Hmmm, now that I think about it, I'm still waiting for those delicious looking cookies to show up... guess they're not hot any more. That is quite a tea kettle indeed. Have a great week !

Diana that teapot is really cute. Your friend's wall that looks like a quilt must have taken a lot of time and work to make look like that, but I really like the results.

As for the bridge that sways, I think that would make me a bit nervous!

Hope you have a great day! :D
