Surprises and Books and Fireworks

Yes, yes a day late at least I'm not a dollar short.
I don't have a dollar to be short one.
Happy giveaway Jenny - Lake!
Please e-mail me your address to

Oliver's guitar teacher has open a guitar store and yesterday I noticed the field next to his shop was full of wild flowers.
I wanted to gather a bunch but we had immediate plans afterward and they would have wilted away in the car.
Maybe next Monday.

I think this is Indian Paint Brush.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
The others I have know idea.
If anyone can identify them, please do.

My lovely and generous friend Wendy sent me birthday presents yesterday.

I don't know how she gifted this fabric away but I have big plans for it.

The white motifs are raised and soft also there are about three and a half yards of it!

Vintage trims.

Owls in my favorite colors.
I would love to see Wendy's home as she has brilliant taste.

She also thinks of Freya.
Freya's eyes lit up and she gasped when she saw her name on these books.

(Freya's blurry photo's).

A yellow glass of which I have a set of six pink ones of the same pattern.
Wendy also sent a bright yellow sheet which I forgot to photo.

I haven't been this spoiled since Wendy last parcel.

Thank you, thank you Wendy.

For the last three days I've been obsessed with The Hunger Games trilogy.

Oliver and I pounded through the first in three days.

Reading together on my bed and waiting for one another to catch up so we can discuss a really exciting part is fun.

I don't make time for reading very often (I hadn't read a book in two years.)
Mostly because once I'm into a book very little else gets done and I become a bit inaccessible to my families dismay sans Oliver.

Saturday was South Jordan town days.

My parent live in South Jordan which is a ten minute drive from my house and a twenty minute

drive from Salt Lake City.

The firework display was awesome although I think the tax dollars would've been better spent fixing 9000 south.

That road is a travesty of large proportions.

A few photos from Sat. night.

Fireworks are really hard to photograph so I quit trying.

I didn't want to watch the display through a view finder.

Utah's weather will be at its finest this week.

From Mondays 58 degrees to Thursdays 90.

Look for Utah in the news as we flood along with the rest of US.
