 My tomatoes didn't do so well this year, but I do like how my chair/cages look.

Extra bedroom

 I'm working on cleaning and doing some touch-up painting in my extra bedroom. I've had a youth from a refugee foster care program living with me for the past two years. A couple of weeks ago I helped her move into her new apartment.

Tea set

 Betsy ordered a special tea set for Kathryn and Lilah to play with while the ladies and older girls sipped from breakable tea cups at Grace's shower. 

Part way through the evening, Betsy overheard Kathryn saying to herself, "Happy, happy."

White dishes

 My Pfaltzgraff dishes were looking a little worse for their wear. I did a little research, gathered materials and scrubbed and scrubbed. 

I was pleased with the result.

Kayak seat

 Betsy and her crew helped Naomi and me install a new seat in our double kayak so that we can have more comfortable trips down the river.
