35 Years

Happy 35th Anniversary to my parents!  I made them this quilt as a gift.  The colors remind me of the 70's, when they were married.  They were in Chicago visiting this weekend so here are some pictures.

New Garden Addition

We added a bowl of salad to our garden this weekend and we ate some of it for lunch today.

Cable Stitch Socks

After knitting a couple of plain ribbed socks, I decided to try a cable stitch pair. They took longer, but I like how they turned out. This pair is for Machelle.

Balcony Garden

Next year I hope to get a community garden, but for now I am growing a few things on the balcony.  This is lavendar planted as seeds.

This is a green pepper plant that we got at the farmer's market this past weekend.  

This is the Father Hugo plant that Jason's grandma gave us from her yard when we visited her a few months ago.  Jason's grandpa brought it with them when they moved to Iowa many years ago.   

Here they are together.

Anniversary Bikes

Our one year wedding anniversary was May 21.  It was the Monday after our vacation so we took the day off of work to enjoy it together.  For our anniversary, we got bikes and we've been out for a few rides so far. 

 Here I am riding on our way back from lunch on Central St in Evanston.  I got a nice comfy cruiser bike.

 I don't have a picture of Jason riding so here is his bike.
