I am on vacation. Today I am driving to Grandma Nan's, with a little side trip to the US. We are having dinner with Phil as he is Kingston on course. Tomorrow is the BIG day. Quilt Show and meeting up with a few forum members too. Friday I head off to Trenton to visit with Phil and family.

I don't know if I shared this with you or not BUT Greg and Ashley got engaged over the weekend. I was a little surprised but hey it's their life right?

So that's it everyone. Chances are I won't be on here tomorrow as we leave early in the morning. Maybe Blondie will be back.

Have a great day everyone.

Monique - have fun.

Woke up in the middle of the night and realized I don't know where the kit is for the quilt I want to make for my granddaughter due in September. This move has really thrown so much off course - but I love it in my new home, state, etc. Today, before we start painting (again) I am going to find the bag (yes, at least it's clear) with the material and pattern for the kit. Will drag my sewing machine out for this project - despite lack of any space yet. This one is very important.

Finally had a rain last night. I only have a couple of veggie plants in pots on the deck, but I know there is nothing like rain water to make them grown. Finally getting hummingbirds to my feeders. Bought the stuff you find in the stores - they did not like that stuff. Finally have all my own ingredients to make my own hummingbird syrup - so easy. I have more hummingbirds now than before. I am so excited. I love to watch these tiny creature.

Here's to a great Wednesday to all.

Have a great time, Monique. I wish I were going with you.

It has been a quiet, but lovely week so far and I have accomplished quite a bit in the sewing room, completed 3 UFOs and working on a couple others that have been around for too long in semi-finished states.

Now that Hump Day is here, I am looking forward to a busy Father's Day weekend. Ribfest starts on Friday night and we are going with our BFFs to enjoy a feast of ribs, then a trip to the Big Scoop for ice cream for dessert...Saturday we will go to see "Finding Dory" with our grandkids and then out for dinner with DD and DSIL. Sunday we will celebrate Father's Day with a bbq in the back yard. I just love this time of year when the gardens are so green and full of blooms. It is hard to stay inside when the weather is as beautiful as it is.

Prayers sent to those in need and get well wishes for those who are under the weather.

Have a happy day! :)

I miss the 'like' button!!

Good morning all :) My hubby finished putting the carpet down, and the room looks wonderfully fresh! Seriously, a coat of paint and a new carpet and oh boy, what a difference :) We got pretty much all of the extra stuff out of my sewing room, so maybe I can get back in there and make it look like a sewing room again ;)
My older daughter will be coming by tonight for dinner, hubby is ordering chinese - yumm. We'll also have a European layer cake from a favorite grocery store bakery here... another yumm.

Ok, coffee, then watering the garden, then laundry, etc... have a fab day everyone!

Good morning everyone. Beautiful morning here. It's this kind of day that makes me think about retiring --- so I could stay home and work out in the garden, sit and read a bit and have a second cup of tea outside and enjoy the morning sounds of the birds and then head to my sewing room and get creative. It probably won't be like that but I can dream. :icon_bigsmile:

Monique, have a wonderful time. Peggie, sounds like great plans for the weekend and Songbird, glad you can get back into your sewing room. Have fun getting it back in order.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone. Prayers and hugs going out to those that need them.

Have fun Monique! We can't wait until you get back and give us an update on your adventures.

The warehouse kicked my butt yesterday. We repacked a crate of door frames which had about 2500 pieces. It took us 5 hours. He has to go back next week to do the guys inventor.
Had a wonderful visit with my sister. We sat and talked while I got my energy back and then hit a Goodwill and had dinner at a Pizza Hut - one of our favorite places. I got home and crashed.
Today looks like a day at Dad's - probably head down sometime about noon. More work in the garden to be done. The tomato plants he bought haven't been planted yet and look pitiful so I will probably just stop and buy some more on the way - even though I know he will get grumpy about it. I am not wasting my time planting the ones he has the way he wants them planted to have them not even make it a day in the soil. He is very picky about planting. Every hole has to be measured from one to the next, holes get dug, shredded paper and miracle grow gets put in the holes, plants next, cover them all up, a cage around each plant, then a string strung between each cage and tied at each end to a post, then watered. And, he doesn't go small - there are 24 tomato plants alone.
Off to get the day started. Maybe I can get some more of the kitchen stuff washed and decide what goes into the yard sale box.
Have a great day everyone.

It seems that we are through Wednesday and here we have a rainy day and with thunder and this time is not normal, but we will do, time is free and does what he wants. Monique seems that this week is being too busy to you but it will happen very well. I´d like to go to the Quilt Show, in my country we just have not enhibitions and I would love to go to those big events, but I´m too far, maybe someday have more affection in my country and can see more precious things. Songbird I also I miss the button I like, because many people could thank his kindness, hope to return soon. Well will continue sewing a little,so command prayers for those who need, smiles and gretings

Glad to hear everyone is so busy or planning to be busy getting things done. Monique extend my Congrats to your DS and his new fiancée and you and Nan have a wonderful time. Trish, 24 tomato plants are a lot. does your Dad can them or just supply everyone with some delicious home grown tomatoes?

It's a lovely day today and I could just sit here and enjoy it but I better get myself moving as there is a big pile here on my desk filled with this week's mail and other paper work I've been avoiding for far too long. Windows are open and birds are singing so at least I have some lovely company while I wade through the mail and other paper work. But first another cup of coffee!

I have to finish getting the summer BoxTop baggies ready to go out to the kids at school today.
Then I must put some time in on the tote bag.
First things first though. Coffee!

Have a good one!

Trish I hear you. I made the mistake of buying tomatoes for my new MIL. Got the wrong kind, didn't plant them in the right place, now she's getting to many tomatoes. I don't think I could make her happy if I hung her with a new rope. Although there are days I would like to try! Oh, I didn't say that out loud did I?

Monique, have a blast this week with Nancy, and at the quilt show. Give her a hug from me. On here a little late today. Another doctor appointment this afternoon....this time with a new dermatologist. (was not happy with my other one) I also wanted to have all of my specialist in one place, so that they actually know each other...and it is easier for them to figure out what to do with my 'rare' case. I was going to get a knee walker, but that wasn't working for me, so I opted for a transport chair. It doesn't have the big wheels, so I can't wheel myself, but I can scoot in it, and DGK should not have much trouble getting me around this week end. Can't wait for the fun and festivities, and seeing old friends.
Hugs and blessings to all. Prayers for those in need.

Laura - I hear ya!
May - no, he doesn't eat any of it. I usually bring it all home and freeze them for use in stews for the winter. We also plant about 30 hot pepper plants for my brother-in-law to use for his catering business. Green peppers also come home with me which I use in stews. I am not a cook and don't like to spend time in the kitchen. I usually wash, cut them up, and put in freezer bags.
I didn't get there today so that means I must go tomorrow.

Trish, I'm curious. Do you know the purpose of the shredded paper? Am wondering what it does.

Shredded paper holds moisture near the roots. You can use lint from the dryer also.

Thanks Cindy - you beat me to it. That's what my dad figures also. He is happy in the thought that all the political stuff and everyone asking for money is shredded and now sitting in his garden and has a purpose. haha! We just mix it in with the soil and miracle grow.

If you've always wanted to tour in South Dakota and Wyoming I highly recommend Road Scholar with Theresa and Paul Reed as your tour guides. What an amazing trip!!!
