Wednesday Wives Tales

I haven't done an old wives tale post in a while, so I thought I would share these with you:

1. A bed changed on Friday will bring bad dreams.

2. Throw back the first fish you catch, and you will be lucky the entire day of fishing!

3. Stabbing your knitting needles through a ball of yarn will bring bad luck to whoever wears the garment you knit with the yarn.

4. If you dream about a lizard, it means you have a secret enemy.

5. Dropping an umbrella on the floor means there will be a murder in the house.

I've never heard any of these. Do you know these or any similar old wives tales?

Good morning. I hope that all of you had a great weekend. It is another hot day here. We are under heat warnings this week, so I'll probably be staying indoors a lot.

I've started pulling out more of my patriotic decorations. I keep red, white, and blue in my dining room all year, but I have some extras for the Fourth of July and the rest of the summer.

I keep the garland (above) out all year. It is really a Christmas garland with angels and stars, but I like it a lot, so I try to make it 'fit' the season that is current. I gave the angels these little toothpick flags to hold for the Independence Day. I also looped the red, shiny garland around the curtain rod. It is also a Christmas decoration, but since it is red stars, I think it's also perfect for the Fourth!

The dolls, below, were put out by Hallmark in 1979. Two are Molly Pitcher dolls and the other one is a Susan B. Anthony doll. I thought they looked cute in the pitcher with the flags.

I may pull out some of my craft supplies and make some new decorations to add to my collection. I figure it's one fun way to 'beat the heat':).

Happy decorating~and stay cool!

Life has been getting in the way of blogging again. The past few weeks have not been my favorites this year. We had to replace our refrigerator (after we lost a lot of food), our washing machine, and also put down our sweet little cat (we miss you, Georgia!). I hope all of you have been having a better June than we have been having at the cabin.

Did all of the dads in your life have a good Father's Day? I made a card for my dad and gave it to him at church yesterday. I'm so blessed to still have my dad. He will be 80 in a few months.

The daughters and I grilled ribs and made potato salad and baked beans for Father's Day supper last night. After that, we gave ourselves a good fright watching a few old episodes of the X-Files, LOL!

Everyone have a great day and stay COOL!
