I've been feeling very thankful this three-day weekend. We have almost made it to summer vacation after a tough year. My students gave me a nice thank you basket of yarn and knitting needles at the awards banquet last weekend. The personalized gift was thoughtful, and I am using the pink yarn to made some "blankies" for my niece's twin dolls. (She also recently acquired twin sisters, so she might need a little extra something when I see her on vacation in a few weeks.)
In other news, my garden has produced one beautiful red rose so far.
And my veggie beds are a little (OK, a lot) over run by chamomile, which in spite of its amazing medicinal properties, is a weed.
I was warned to keep this problem in hand by, well, actually weeding, but they are really pretty...
Finally, I decided that if life hands you chamomile, you should make tea.
The tea is DELICIOUS!
And hopefully the little blankets will be appreciated also.
Happy almost summer!
