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.

Well back from the doctors and not happy with results.  New injection coming soon and a new medicine that I just googled and now I wish I hadn't.
Too much information.  This getting old is for the birds.  I have decided to keep a journal everyday of my activities and the pain and maybe I can determine what I can do and what to avoid or at least do a little at a time.  This is so frustrating!  I did get some mowing done early this morning.  Oh maybe that is why I am hurting!  Well who else is going to do it?  Mr?  He does the riding mowing and for some reason will not do the edges!  Maybe we need a talk.  I did not get any pictures done as I did not do anything fun but I am going to the movies with a friend.  Mama Mia 2.  I heard it is not good but oh well it is an out with a friend.  Take care everyone.  Tomorrow is another day and fun things in store.

Wow today has been very productive.
First off I woke up with a headache and stiff neck.  But that is
usual for me when I over do.
But that did not stop me from getting my jobs done.

Bread and butter pickles six pints done.  
But now I have to go pick again!  I may be 
leaving some on neighbors doorsteps

Then I had this brilliant idea.  I want something to do while sitting
to watch TV besides my cross stitch.  And I have been
wanting to make some scrappy quilts so while I was down in the 
cave I had this great idea.  Put my scraps in a basket and make my own templets out of cardboard!
Wallah!!!!

I also finished two more sets of T towels.

I am exhausted so now guess what I am going to do!

Look at my new quilting magazine!
Have a great day everyone , mine has been a good one.
