Rewarding day

We had an unusual nighttime visitor... a desert toad, on our back patio. He was kind of cute. Want to guess what toads do when they are scared half to death? Ned had some cleanup to do!

The tomato garden is coming along nicely. I have some yellow grape tomatoes which are actually returning from last summer on their own. I have never seen a tomato plant regrow itself. The first crop is in and they are delicious. I have also planted some Heirloom tomatoes but they are just flowering and a red sweet pepper. Hard in the desert to grow veggies without a lot of effort. Hopefully when I get back from NY next week my 12 rose bushes will start a 2nd bloom. I am sorry I did not take a picture as they were a riot of color. I had upwards of 50 blooms per bush.

Yesterday was dye day and this morning ironing day (yuck). I did another gradation run and some 3 color multi's. I had some dye left so I just tossed it onto a couple of yard pieces and I really love the results. My favorite is the red piece but that one was planned. I tried to get 2 black but one came out brownish and the other blue. Not bad, but not black.

I would like to get rid of some of these and the previous ones. I will have to figure out how to set up Paypal or something.

In the meantime, I got lucky and got a mileage ticket to NY for this long weekend. I am going wedding shoe shopping with my daughter and will attend to other related things. When I get back I need to finish my piece for SAQA and some of the other things I would like to do.

I love the one on the top right. I will be watching to see if you get a paypal account. It isn't hard to do; just make sure that you have a separate bank account set up just for them so that they can't freeze your "real" one.
