Labor Day Weekend 2019

September is here and the temperatures are cooling off. Yesterday we attended, Our Lady of the Snows church picnic, in Mary's Home. Wonderful as always! My grandson started first grade last week and we are looking forward to Fall camping trips! I started on another quilt, this one is for my daughter. Herringbone is the pattern. And I rescued two trapped racoons in the dumpster at work. They keep climbing in there and then cant get out. So I use some thing I found to make them a away to get out. It was really hot that day and the lids were closed so they couldn't get out. I wasn't about to leave them. They scurried out of the dumpster in less than 30 minutes. 
Anyway, we are ready for Fall temps and chili! Fall is my favorite season!

MO State Fair 2019

I missed going to the state fair last summer. At the beginning of the week it was only supposed to be in the low 80's but today was in the 90's. We got an early enough start so it wasn't too hot. I absolutely loved the animals and quilts. We enjoyed some wine tasting as well too.

Goodbye July

Hard to believe school will be starting in a few weeks. I have enjoyed my flowers and little garden. My job keeps me busy but I do love it! My brother came in for a visit last week and we spent a lot of time together with my mom and grandson. I am ready for Fall and camping trips but I will enjoy these last few weeks of summer.
I planted two cherry tomato plants

Lots of tomatoes




We took Uncle Mike to Runge Nature Center

Second quilt of 2019

I bought all this material to make someone close to me a quilt. They passed away before I could finish it. I finally decided to finish piecing it and get it quilted. I decided to donate the quilt for the Mental Health Champions Banquet. It is something close to my heart!





Rainy day project

Last Saturday was a rainy and stormy day. My grandson had been watching cartoons and I was in my sewing room. He comes in and asks if we can do a project and shows me this helicopter kit. I told him to ask grandpa to come help him build his helicopter. Grandpa took his time measuring and making sure it was perfect. They made a great team!




June 2019

It is hard to believe we are halfway through the year. June is almost over and has been a chilly month but last few days are in the 90's. The garden is really started producing. I have a bunch of onions, tomatoes, peppers sweet and the spicy variety and  different types of strawberry plants that produce at different times of the summer. Last weekend Fulton had their street carnival. We took the grandson up to ride rides and have some fun. He took swimming lessons this month at Riverside Park. He really enjoyed being in a group swim class and the girls who taught him were great! And my grandson has had 2 visits from the tooth fairy this month!
