We celebrated Becky’s 70th birthday last night at Thursday on Main and we ran into little Libby again who squirmed so much I couldn’t get a nice picture. Deb, I told Libby’s mom about Augie!
Our cousin Jill is home from California – you might remember her as the recipient of the red and white quilt called Farmer’s Daughter a few years ago. Friends in the restaurant sang Happy Birthday and the waitress joined in.
The band was terrible – jazz. Tell me who in this crowd wants to listen to jazz? Nobody – everybody left early. Where are the Kraft Brothers when you want a nice evening of tunes???? There’s one Thursday left and if I remember correctly we like the band named Bear Creek.
Thank you for all the compliments on my pink quilt – it was very fun to make – no expectations, just relaxed sewing of leftover pieces. Save all your orphan blocks and leftover borders. Sew something and then send me a picture.
Yesterday Mr. Schroeders picture didn’t post so here he is!
Today is lawn mowing day but I’m just not sure I should mow my dry grass. No rain in sight and I don’t want to kill my grass. Summer life is at a standstill right now – everybody going on vacation before school starts and just preparing for harvest. Many are going to the State Fair but it’s just so much hassle for me to go although I’d love to see the quilts. I’m going somewhere tomorrow and I really don’t like going. I’m happy to be at home with my dogs.
Later today I’ll post that list of books. It will take me awhile to copy them. Also – someone asked for a favorite recipe and this is what I always make when I have fresh tomatoes.
This is a prize winning photo – they match!
Talk later on the blog about nothing, everything and anything!
