The company picnic was a grand success for our little band of employees. We welcome extra family and kids to make it even more fun. The pool at Shelly's house is the perfect size for this kind of party - one family arrived early to get more pool time for the 9 kids. Famous Dave's did the cooking for me and we got enough to feed the crowd and have a little leftover for Shelly and me to make some lunches. Last year I got way too much - although the leftovers never go to waste, lol! With temps in the low 90s, the frozen t-shirt contest was very popular. Seems we picked the right weekend as all this week the thermometer will be hitting 100 degrees and more.
With that kind of heat, I'll be spending mornings and evenings moving sprinklers so the grass and roses don't dry up on me. And I'll be spending more time with Red Velvet Inscription! This weekend I took some time away from picnic prep to start a different color for the center portion of the design. For my project I have chosen Gentle Arts Loganberry.
This morning I saw the my Abraham Darby rose bush had some nice blooms, so I cut them to enjoy here at the office. They really filled my car with lovely fragrance. My poor garden could really use some attention. The weeds and grass are taking over which would not have happened before I started working. But the roses are fine, even if their surroundings aren't optimal!
That's about all the news from my part of town. Till next post, have a great day!
