Thought I'd pop in and say "hi". It's a rainy, overcast day here in Ohio.
I'm slowly making progress on my shawl. I like the pattern and I think it is going to be really pretty when it's complete.
It's not one of those mindless patterns though, you really need to watch where you are in the repeats. I'll block it and get the pineapples to really stand out once it's complete.
I planned for the rain today. Dear son and I kept busy with a cute novel we are reading and a little baking and cooking.
We made Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies (mine are blackberry today) and the little one helped me make homemade meatballs for dinner.
These cookies are one of my favorites. They make a nice "tea cookie" with the shortbread crust and the sweet jam center. If you aren't a huge almond fan, you could leave off the glaze, but that is what makes these a favorite in my book.
Earlier today, we spotted a deer in the vacant lot behind us.
I whistled to get the deers attention, but it just scared her away. This is the first deer I've seen since we've lived here, but we've had deer tracks in our yard on many different occasions.

My front porch shade plants are enjoying this rainy damp day.
I think both the leafy plants are in the "coleus" family. I pinch off the flowers to keep them full. The impatiens will continue to fill out as the summer progresses. I can't wait for all the heavy equipment to be done in our yard so I can start thinking about landscaping. I think they are about done.
Hope your Tuesday is going great.
Library and karate later this afternoon and spaghetti and meatballs in the crockpot for dinner.
