|PGD#1 ready for her semi formal, June 2019|
The only grand daughter had her semi-formal eighth grade dance so all the females in the family spent the day together getting her ready for it.
Lunch out at her choice- Arnies in Plattsburgh, pedicures and manicure at A Plus nails and then the hair dresser arranged to do her hair on her day off, thanks Michelle! It was an enjoyable day and she looked really nice. She actually agreed to wear a couple of my bracelets for accessories which she kindly returned.

Since the camera was out to document this milestone, I had her brother and their dog jump in for photos.

And just so you know we are totally normal some "real shots too"! They get along great and then like oil and vinegar, typical siblings. One would smile and the other would act up and vise versa.

On another post I'll share about my trip to Florida to visit with my Mom and sister. It was such a nice visit and I enjoyed my time with them thoroughly while getting some much needed warmer weather and some sunshine. So back home for a couple days and then back to Boston for DH's 1 year post heart transplant check up. Thankfully all is going extremely well.
Then came the end of school sessions with a BANG! Concerts, National Junior Honor Society events and sporting events. Both of the youngest grands played ball, (softball and baseball) with an assortments of 5-6 different teams, modified, city league, All star and both are on Traveling ball besides the town summer league. SO many games and so many miles traveled while we supported their activities with our presence but phew! We're glad many of them are now over, just the traveling ball teams and the town team are left. It's been so busy that we haven't yet opened the pool as we were gone, or when we were home the weather wasn't cooperating.
AS for projects I've been dawdling around with my needle roll that I started while in Florida while visiting Mom. It's been great stitching it, but when I ran into the bees wings, I've done them twice so far and now have ripped them out twice as well. Perhaps I'll play with my angelica fibers to see if that would be an improvement. What's that? theh third times the charm, crossing my fingers here.
Here's it is in it's present state:

So I'll post the needle roll as my July OPAM focus.
I'll end this post with a couple of photos of my garden. It's been my focus for May and June to get the gardens done. Everything got in despite all the travels we've been on there just remains more weeds and now to finally open the pool this week.
|The darkest colored lilacs next to the butterfly house were fabulous!|
Just now the Missouri primroses and lilies are flowering.
