This weekend, I . . .


* Went to H*me Depot and bought chicken wire to keep a certain dog out of the rose bushes.

* Cleaned the house from top to bottom.

* Weeded the garden.

* Took a dog for a walk and watched her chase butterflies.

* Started embroidering a set of shams.

* Watched baseball on t.v.

* Played around with a new design for my blog, didn't like it, tried to change it back and couldn't. ARgh! This is as close as I got.

* Made cupcakes with white frosting and decorated them with little flags on toothpicks.

* Didn't get to see fireworks because it poured just as they were supposed to start.

* Wondered why the rain didn't stop all the people who set off their own fireworks, making my old dog a nervous wreck.

* Am looking forward to an extra day of weekend on Monday:)


This Weekend, I . . . is hosted by Becky at Keys to the Cottage. Try it! It's fun!

You were ambitious!
Love the cupcakes, and here's hoping that the dog leaves the roses alone!

Becky said...

Love it! I hope the chicken wire works. Naughty girl! The dog ... not you :)

I embroidered pillow cases for my mom for Christmas last year. It was something my grandma (her mom) taught me to do. She was so tickled with the gift, and mentioned to me that grandma would be so pleased.

Have a wonderful week! And enjoy your extra day ... I sure am.

Those cupcakes look de-lish. I could go for one right now with my morning coffee! Sounds like a nice 4th weekend, except for the rain :/ It was very, very hot here, with temps predicted to approach 100 this week, a good week to stay indoors in the a/c!
