When I left on vacation I finished just enough of the pinecone postcards to mail the ones I needed. Since I got back I've been taking some 15 minute sewing breaks and almost have the rest of them finished.
Aside from paper and computer work, this is about all I got done yesterday. I did do about a hour of "gardening" in the morning. Of course for me "gardening" means spraying 3 gallons of RoundUp. We've gotten entirely too much rain this summer and the weed have been celebrating. It's time to bring the party to a stop. In a few weeks we will have the driveway and parking area graded and graveled, new drainage installed and new sidewalks built. We were lucky that the original once have held up almost 30 years. Of course the real reason for all of this is that the drainage needs to be fixed so I can mosaic the front wall of the basement.

Of course the mosaic wall is a priority! And here I was getting worried that you were getting close to the end! Go, Vicki!

Love, love the background fabric of the postcards!

You go girl. I'm sure all the upgrades to the exterior will be worth it. But the mosaic is high on your priority list.

A celebration of weeds. I love the wording. It brings all sorts of images to mind. Unfortunately, I would have to echo Kathy's comments that drought does not stop the weeds. Reminds me of my daze of motherhood, "no, life is not fair."

The weeds are partying hard in my yard! It is too hot to do anything about it since the front of my house faces south and it just doesn't cool off. Your pinecone cards are so fun!
