Today's ramblings

Oh, my, where does the time go?

We have gone and watched our oldest grandson's football practice a couple times. He is quite a good little player, and yes, I'm prejudiced, but he really is. He also is playing "fall ball," which is baseball, and he has a game Sunday.

I can't believe how fast the summer is going. The kids will be back in school before we know it, and boo hoo, we have picked the last of our blueberries. We enjoy them for a couple months in the summer, and then presto, summer is nearly gone, and it's back to berries from the freezer. However, there are still fresh peaches, so that's a huge plus! Gravenstein apples will be at the farmer's market probably this week, and I want to buy a box and make applesauce in my crockpot. Yum-yum!

Next week we will take our two granddaughters to Seattle for a couple days. They are beside themselves with excitement. I hope the trip lives up to their expectations. Seattle is such a pretty city, right on the Puget Sound.

The beautiful days have made it a joy to get out and walk for a while. We have a much harder time pushing ourselves in the winter, when we have so much rain, and it's cold. Maybe we just look for excuses to stay hunkered down inside, do you suppose?

My Juki is in the hospital hopefully getting its tension issues and skipping stitch issues resolved. I certainly have found plenty to do in the interim. I put together my guild row quilt, and I am making the braids for my second French Braid. I want to have both French Braids ready to give to our two sons and daughters-in-law for Christmas, or if I can't wait, sooner. I THINK I can do it!

  1. I cant wait to see the French Braids. I am sure they will be wonderful. I have the pattern for my retirement years! Have fun with the girls - I am sure they will enjoy time with you and each other.
