Flowers (and tomatoes)

I went outside a while ago. It's 86 degrees outside so it was yucky. I took pics of the lilies and the tomatoes. We found three more growing for a total of six tomatoes! We also have a pink gerber daisy which is really pretty.

Sock and Calla Lily (real lilies too!)

Ten minutes ago (or less, I'm not really counting) I finished my Calla Lily! I ignored it for a year because I was confused about the short rows. I was working on it until 2am last night (haha) and also this afternoon and I finished it. :)

I also have a picture of Monkey #1 and Monkey #2!

I also have real lilies to show you! The picture is before they bloomed but when I go outside later I'll take pics of them open. They are Oriental Plum lilies and we got them last year from a local flower/garden shop (caan's floral). :) I have Stargazer lilies too but they haven't bloomed yet.

This is our basil plant that we got from the same place as the plum lilies. I think we need to make pesto again! Last time we made pesto it about wiped out all the leaves. It looked like a charlie brown christmas tree. ;) We're also growing cilantro and mint.

I finished the first monkey sock on Saturday and started the second sock on Saturday or Sunday. I just worked on it for a while and just finished the second repeat. I'll have pics tomorrow. On Wednesday I'm going to Stitch n Pitch with my mom and my sister. :) It will be fun even though I think baseball is stupid. ;)

I also won a contest at http://mspalmtree.blogspot.com. I don't know what the prize is but I'm sure it will be a cool prize. :)

Today it was like 90 degrees outside. I only went outside like twice today even though I wanted to go swimming someplace. That would have felt good. :)
