Where did yesterday go? It was so busy I hardly remember it. I got up at 6 am with Carol and we enjoyed our last coffee on the porch until next summer. Moe, the black golden doodle, arrived at 9:15 and I had to have a short rest in my chair. Then it was outside to work – chores, some watering and a visit to the quilt shop.
There’s encouraging news about gray kitty – Carol talked softly to her for several minutes – I think she’s the cat whisperer – and gray kitty is exploring the shop. She even came out from hiding and sat and stared at me. One reader suggested tuna and a few days ago I gave her some that she ate immediately. Progress!
Did you see Bonnie Hunter’s Jack’s chain quilt in red, white and blue? I love it – a simple block really but so effective. Go to her website http://Quiltville and look – I think you’ll like it.
Here’s Moe and company.
We all love having Moe here!
Becky and I went to Thursdays On Main in Clear Lake last night and listened to some great music by two local guys called the Kraft Brothers. They were very good and easy to listen to – older songs from the 50’s to 90’s? Somebody said they’re actually local brothers who farm during the day and play music at night! Local readers – can you correct me here or add some details? Why didn’t I take a picture????
Today is a trip to Menards for a whole list of things – the most important being a new fan for the barn. It’s supposed to be getting hot next week and both my old fans quit. I love going into my sweet smelling barn.
I can’t wait till next week when I can start sending out your Oh, Susannah! books. A high school classmate told us that their 6 year old granddaughter likes to “read” it to her 2 year old sister. This is exactly what I was hoping for – after being read the story, the 6 year old can retell the story by looking at the pictures. Mission accomplished!
Here’s a picture that isn’t in the book of Becky trying to convince Susannah to get out of the UPS truck with Carly looking on.
Oh, Susannah! is available for $20 PPD, cash or check made out to Mary ETHERINGTON, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438.,

Do you have fun plans for the weekend?
