Monday the Somewhat Random Day

Monday's tend to be random and scattered for me. The start of the week which seems to begin in a fog 

Celaeno Shawl in Shalimar Yarns Breathless  The pattern is a fun knit and the yarn is very soft.  It's a blend of wool, cashmere and silk.  I found the beads at AC Moore and they match perfectly.

As the day goes on, it brightens up filling the world with beauty and light.

I took this picture on Saturday.  The clouds look so much like a bird in flight.  Art in nature captivates me.

The garden has been growing in leaps and bounds.  In the past I haven't had much luck with vegatables.  Flowers grow like crazy for me.  The vegatables either don't grow at all or the deer demolish them.  This  year we have added a stealthy fence made of fishing line.  We have also been sprinkling Irish Spring Soap around the edges of the garden to deter any veggie stealing critters.  So far it's working.

Everything in this salad came from our garden.  The strawberries went really well with bleu cheese dressing. 

I have successfully killed every lavendar plant for the previous four years.  Above is success!  Seven lavendar plants.  All growing and producing for us.  Im going to make sachets to put in my yarn storage boxes to deter any moths from having a feast.
