Altar Ego. She had a give-away on her blog recently -- a collection of beautiferous cards featuring orchid photographs. And I was fortunate to be one of the winners. I told her in my entry that I would share them with Joe, as he has a small collection of orchids. Wasn't it generous of Altar Egoto give these beauties away?
She's a nifty sort of a woman,always with lots going on in her life. Right now she's collecting tracings of hands on fabrics -- she has plans to make a sort of "laying on of hands" quilt for use in her congregation. I think it's a splendid idea; one that might be on my eschatological projects list, because there are so many on my regular list! Today when Sherry and her family come to meet Blackberry, we're going to do our hand tracings so we can get them in the mail to her. If you feel inclined to give her a hand yourself, I know she'd appreciate it. Leave a comment on her blog and she'll send you the mailing address. Or, if you're someone I know, love, and/or trust, you could weasel it out of me.
He doesn't look too lively in this picture, I know. Because he's had a busy day. He and Joe did some gardening this morning as well as some intense ball playing, and then mid-day he helped Joe make a batch of bread. His version of help was mostly staying underfoot. But help is help.
Hey -- take a closer look at the top picture, the one of Joe and the orchid cards. See the "bread" print in the background? It was a gift from my Secret Sister a year or two ago. Before Joe started making bread. I just love how that worked out!
Well, the family will be here any time now. So it's into the shower for me and then setting the table, and oh what a lovely ending to a day that has already been splendid!
