A Summer Scarf

I could not help myself. I know time for crafting is not in large supply these days, but when a church friend was so excited about my multcolor ribbon scarf, I told her I would make one for her. It really is a fast knit with some triple drop stitches that I place every few inches.  I never wear my scarf but what I receive compliments. I think it looks so much like summer. The colors are so vivid and the color I am using is Purple Party in Lion Brand Incredible Yarn. You can make it any width and place the drop stitches anywhere you please.   

I have been having a grand time "playing" in my garden. The pansy bowls that I planted two days ago are taking hold and popping out new blossoms everyday. So many flowers are starting to bloom each day.  




It is now time to put the decorative birdhouses out.  I am so happy that the weather is getting nicer day by day. The weather is forecast to turn a little cooler and showers in a few days but that is OK. I am just so thankful for a few of these beautiful days when I can be out in the lovely sunshine.



 
Also, I have filled the bird feeders with seed. Feed them and they will come.
The feeders for the hummingbirds need to be filled again. It looks like we are on an every other day refill schedule!




I hope you are having a nice warm Spring Day.

Soups On - Come And Get It

Look at these little babies. Aren't they cute? It is a rainy day, but I was able to take this photo through the dining room window. I have been thoroughly enjoying watching my little friends play "dive-bomb" every morning  when I open the drapes. I wish I could get a photo of these little creatures that would show all the wonderful florescent colors they display, especially around their little necks. Each and every feeding port was occupied by a hummingbird just prior to me getting this photo. I guess I was lucky to get the photo before they ALL flitted away chasing each other.



Like I said, "Soup's on".  It would be nice if you could come over and have a Little Soup Tasting Party with me today. I decided that since the weather is acting like winter, I would do a little winter-type cooking. Some of it will go into the freezer. Isn't soup good during all the seasons?
Our first soup for your pleasure is Lentil Sausage which I have prepared many times and it is always a winner.


Pasta e Fagioli is our second selection. This is the first time I have made this recipe. Yum, yum good.


And, then we have Chilly Chili Day soup. This basically is a soup that only requires browning of ground beef, sautéing onions and then adding the remainder of ingredients that are all in a can. Doesn't get much simpler than that. Easy and very good! 

Thanks for stopping by today. I wish you were here. If any of you would like any of the recipes, just let me know. You know how much we all love comments.

I hope you are having a Fabulous day.
