Clapotis Progress...

My Clapotis (KLAP OH TEE) is coming along well...its sooooo much fun. I just love this yarn! My buddy, Darcy, said it reminds her of Monets painting Water Lillies. Clapotis in French means splashes and waves...my colorway is called Pacific..how awesome is that!

Jimmy was doing a lot of bird watching this weekend! He took pictures of them and observed their behaviors...look how close they got to him. This is a mourning dove...we did a backyard bird count last year and we have approximately 40-50 doves a day! We even have two quail that come to our feeder! Plus sparrows, finches, blackbirds, and crows. Fun stuff! Our chipmunks wouldn't get close enough to get a picture...we've named them Alvin, Simon, Theodore, Chip, and Dale! One of them I rescued out of the dog's water last year and he's not as skittish as the others...he'll even look into our french doors!:)

VERY Nice! You gotta get a pic with it on! I wanna see!

All we've had flying around lately are a BAJILLION of those really big mosquitos!! It's like a bad B-Horror movie outside! "Attack of the Huge Bugs!" ;O)

It TOTALLY looks like Monet's watercolors! So pretty!

If he wants to see pigeons, he can come to my house!
