The State Fair closes today which is the rite of passage for many kids on their way to college, especially the farm kids who spent the last week showing livestock. Our school starts on Friday – seems impossible, doesn’t it? I’ve been watching a Prime Video series called Tin Star which takes place during the winter in cold Alberta, Canada and it makes me afraid of winter just thinking about it. And of course, it is coming – that’s the reason I hate fall – it’s just the hint of life to come.
August is always weedier than I remember! Just when I think I’ve got the weeds under control, I need to start over again. The grass certainly continues to grow – we got an inch of rain early this morning so no chance of it drying out. I wouldn’t have known it was raining and/or thundering except that I woke up with Hazel under my chin! Then I knew it was thundering and she hates the thunder.
Becky and I did the prelude this morning – we did “It Is No Secret” and then she went to another church for a 10:00 service where she was filling in. One of our mission trips this summer was to Kansas City and the kids handled the service that included songs and short speeches about what they did.
Last night Becky, Connie and I went uptown to the park the the Lions appreciation evening of fun and music. There were several kids playing Jenga- I had never heard of it!
Tomorrow I’ll go back to the RugAlong – we’ll catch up and move ahead. Here’s the one I finished – I want Connie to take a video of me taking it off the frame in hopes I can post it as a short video.
And I warped another one to work on.
Get ready tomorrow morning to work on your rug!
Our next “Along” activity is Hidden In Plain Sight from Beyond The Battlefield- hope you didn’t forget that! Remember lots of you wanting to wait till fall to start this? Well, it’s almost fall and you have exactly 2 weeks to pull your fabric or purchase new so we can start cutting 2 Weeks from today, September 1.
Reed is coming to sew this afternoon so I’m going to gather my fabrics. Rick is freezing more corn – I know what everybody will get for Christmas! I was afraid I had run out of hot dog relish and was thinking back to a year ago knowing that I wouldn’t have to can this year. But I couldn’t find the jars of relish so I panicked and was ready to purchase onions, cubes, and peppers to make more when Rick discovered 20 jars from last year! Oh, thank goodness!
Time to sew with Reed! I leave you with the overflowing flower bed – I remember cleaning this out of all extra plants but they are determined!
