What a crazy couple of days.  Rain came down in torents and we had to put out pumps to keep our basement from flooding.  This has happened three times this year.  Exhausting times.

I need to but not today.

A day of procrastination!

 I need to tie this quilt.  Maybe tomorrow

See this shelf it really needs to have everything removed and dusted. 
Naaa maybe tomorrow. 





Over stuffed File cabinet.


I really need to clean out that file cabinet.  Maybe tomorrow.



Well that was what went on today.  I did a lot of planning (I guess you could call it that)

I do have a picture of that present that my dear sweet sister-in-law sent us.





Have a great weekend!  Hope for cooler weather!

Well a lot has been happening here.  We have found a brother of my husbands that was given up for adoption.  We met up at Village Inn for lunch and really enjoyed meeting him and getting to know him and his story.  The days have been full of canning tomatoes and trying to organized my pictures on my computer.  i have decided that I need very badly to get my pictures, genealogy and just plain paperwork more organized.  So the journey has began.  I recieved the most precious gift from my sister-in-law today.  I was going to take a picture but I will have to do it tomorrow due to it is too late tonight and I am tired.  In fact I am beyoung tired.  My daughter whose children were all raised and she was free to do what she wanted and injoy her hubby is now the parents to two boys.  He daughter's sons have come to live with her while her daughter is incarcerated.  I has been a real stressure.  It is such a sad situation.  We have tried so hard to help this girl but she doesn't get it.  I pray every night that she will see the light and grow up to take care of these two sweet little boys.  
The middle boy is my grandson Ryder.  We took them to the pool last Saturday and they had a blast.  Well I had better go to bed I will be tired tomorrow if I don't and I have a full day tomorrow too.  
Goodnight all

Well today made up for yesterday.  We all went to the pool (indoors cause all the outdoor pools were closed due to bad air).  We took my two greatgrandsons and my two grandsons who even though they were the same age have never met each other.  The oldest two were born on the same day one hour apart.  They had a blast.  I was going to show pictures however I cannot find them on my computer.  I will try again tomorrow.  Tired tonight.  May God bless everyone out there in Blog land.

This world is just getting worse and worse.  This week has been one I do not want to repeat!  Fires all around us.  Air so bad your eyes burn and you can't breathe.  Family emergency with grand children due to drugs and kids that cannot pay their rent because they do not make enough money.  What is going to happen?  I try to stay positive but sometime I just want to crawl in a hole and hope the end comes soon.  I think the hardest thing is seeing my grandchildren struggle so hard.  The ones that are trying are up against the high prices of this world without the financial job market to match.  This rent thing I believe is nothing but a scam.  Greed has taken over America.  I can see things getting worse and worse.

Where has the time gone.  Monday already.  It was a very busy weekend.  So hot here and no rain in sight.  I have been busy moving the furniture in our bedroom.  I kept stubbing my toe on this quilt rack so I decided now is the time to get rid of it.  I have a quilt ladder to put my quilts on.  I am liking the new arrangement.
And I have not stubbed my toe yet. 

Here are a few of the quilts from the show





Quilts from the quilt show  Fun times.  I didn't win anything but it was fun to try.

The air here is so smokey today it is really bad.  I was just out checking the garden and I came in cause my eyes were burning.  I hope it rains and helps out the fire fighters.  
I hope you all had a great weekend.  School will be starting here soon.  I miss the excitement of going school shopping with my girls.  All their kids are all grown up now and do all their own thing.  
Talk to you all tomorrow

Good evening world!  Well the movie was great.  The reviews were bad so we were doubtful but the reviews were way off.  Of course the worst one was posted by a man.  Oh my did I say that?  Musicals I love them.  This Mama Mia was better than the first handsdown.


  This picture is of the ash that is falling from all the fires around our area.  The air is quite smoky.
Today was the beginning of our community celebrations.  The quilt show was
my first time experiencing it and it turned out great.  Not really big but fun
I do think they needed more catagories.  they only had four.  Here are a few pictures will post more tomorrow.   
I really like this quilt.  
The one was so cute it was made by a grandma for her granddaughter who loves
Peppa Pig.


This quilt was one that a parent made from all her childs accomplishment from high school.  Quite a keepsake.


I have aways like this pattern.  Maybe I will attempt it. 
Well goodnight for now.  More quilts tomorrow.
