Remember I talked about Dog Days and how the time between July 3 and August 11 are the most hot and sweltering? Well, we are really experiencing that weather. We still work outside and do not have our AC on except in the sewing room in the evening when I’m sewing.
Yesterday we went to Hayward and Albert Lea, MN with my JUKI sewing machine that we dropped off at Calico Hutch. It has a break in the cord to the foot control so there’s no power except the light. Ugh. I like to quilt small projects on this machine.
We went to Hill’s Nursery but I promised I wouldn’t go inside. I just wanted Rick to see how pretty it is so I took a picture for all of you to see, too.
These are the cleanest greenhouse windows I’ve ever seen!
I also convinced Rick to give me some time in the antique mall – here’s what I bought.
And this one – which I have more plans for which will be another blog post coming up.
I haven’t been in an antique mall for several years – since before the pandemic and it was really fun!
I’m working on my Dirty Dozen pink project.
JB3 is settling in – we call him Mr. Wonderful which is his attitude – very confident, very quiet and is learning the rules of the house – knows how to use the door dog and goes in and out like all the other cats.
When we got home yesterday I started mowing and I’m glad I did because it rained a bit in the night and the grass is very wet.
All is well on the farm – although there is still a rat or several in the feed room at night – they’re eating the cake mix/soda mixture and I’m just hoping it will work.
Bob is coming after Little Red today so he can wash and shine it up for the parade tomorrow. I have been busy copying down all the book titles and have already ordered four of them from Amazon. I’m set for reading on the porch – right now I’m reading on my Kindle which is easy to hold.
Birthday prizes are going to the post office this morning – winners watch for them in your mailbox. Nanette – did you get your Iris pattern yet? I can resend it – just let me know.
And Windy keeps talking – that’s it!
