Here it is still more like spring than summer. Temps have been up to 75*, and we had a thunder and lightening storm yesterday evening that came with a lot of rain. I was wishing that it could be sent to our friends who are dealing with the fires, but it did knock the rest of the pollen out of the trees once and for all.
On Thursday, while running errands with my MIL, I bought some plants in gallon containers. They were pretty cheap, 3 for $9.99, so I bought nine of them, three of each for each of the three containers that line our sidewalk. On Friday, I decided to get busy and plant them. They are kind of pretty:
Yesterday, we pretty much just hung out around the house. I finished reading my book, "Knit in Comfort". I did a few chores and got my sewing machine figured out (I was having problems with the presser foot). I sewed one t.v. blanket, and have two more ready to sew when the mood hits me. My friends adopted three children in June, and I promised each child a blanket to snuggle with. I'll show you how they turned out when they are all done. Pictures of the fabric are in this blog post.

I don't know what is the matter with me, but I just don't feel like taking pictures right now. I think that we need to take a drive out of town, go camping or something pretty soon so that I can get excited about my photography once again. We keep trying too, but the weather is bad, or work is too busy, or something else comes up. We are just trying to go with the flow.
This morning, we did walk around the little fair in town. We ate Thai food, went to the quilt show, and that was that. I should have been busy taking pictures of the quilts, or our friends that we ran into and visited with, but I didn't. Here are the few photos that I did take:
I did take Jimmy and Sam's picture. Their baby is due in only a week! His name is J.C., and he is our great-nephew (Jimmy is our nephew). We can't wait to meet him. I have to get to work on J.C.'s blanket too. Sam is ready. I hope the mood to sew comes on pretty strong soon.
Now we are watching the Mariners and Boston, and I need to choose a new book to read. Hope that your Sunday is peaceful and that your week will be wonderful.
Oh! Our grandson Casey flew out with his Aunt Angie to Alaska this morning to visit with his cousins and family there. Have fun, Casey, and thanks Aunt Angie and Uncle Casey! Heart you all.
