Good morning peeps. I'm out back with a book I borrowed from Alex and my coffee. Bret is working from home today and I need to keep it down. Lots of conference calls going on back there in the computer room. Yes, instead of a den we have a computer room chock full of computers and servers and routers and switches.. you get the idea. Thank goodness my netbook and laptop can take over my desk top if necessary, its distracting back there in nerd central. It's a nice long weekend. I'm looking forward to it. We're not leaving town, just hanging out, maybe doing some more painting and of course sewing. Lots of sewing. We're in hardcore market season.
Just can't resist adding this. One lovely rose beats the heat and isn't a shriveled mess like the rest of them. Man it's been hot.

Have a wonderful SAFE holiday weekend peeps. I'll be waiting here to hear all about it. xo

p.s. thanks for all the lovely bake shop comments and emails! I appreciate your kind words.

Lovely rose. My weekend is sewing too I hope. The latest family arrival came 8 weeks early and her quilt is still only a plan! But she is strong and doing well so all is good :-)

That rose is GORGEOUS!!
One time my hubby was on a conference call via his computer. I decided to stay out of his way and be quiet so I went to my room and decided to watch an episode of Biggest Loser online. Well no one told me that watching a tv show online was going to mess up HIS conference call. My connection wasn't that great either. So he gives up on his call and handles it some other way. Later on I was complaining about my slow connection....OY!

I'll have to add that to my reading list, thanks, Pam! Your rose is gorgeous - almost looks like a peony!

I adore English Roses--they smell heavenly, too bad the Bambi's in the yard love them too! Just one big salad bar to them. Oh well...if I could get a Westie, problem solved! Enjoy!

The book isn't available to us yet1 ;-( I liked the first one. I even look in my libary and they go "Nope - not in our catalogue." Hope you enjoy the book on this last weekend of summer. I will have to keep an eye out of it.

These are my favorite types of roses. Don't you just want to crawl right into the center?!

Lucky you for finding one "unfried".

That rose is gorgeous! wow. thanks for sharing. it's beautiful. A pretty uneventful weekend home for us. It's raining. And generally I complain about rain, but I'm sorta enjoying it this weekend. Although I do feel sorry for all those campers.

Hello, Pam Kitty,
I have not been blogging at all this summer. We've had company, company, company - my daughter, her fiancee, and his son for almost 6 weeks on and off. Then my 10 year old grandson came for a week from PA. It's been lots of fun but now it's time to buckle down and sew. I have a shop I have to make aprons for for the Christmas rush.

Your blog is as cute as ever and looking forward to see what you will come up with for projects. Best wishes. Linda
