Boycot MO campground

I don't like to slam places but what I have read, these people aren't good people.
While on Facebook, I saw a friend's post about a campground  in the Tablerock Lake area called Paradise Cove Camping Resort. They have shot & killed peoples beloved pets. I love my dogs & I would be beside myself if someone shot & killed them. I'd want them to call me & give me a chance to fix the situation. I'm going to share the link but you can also find stories in the Cassville MO paper regarding this story. This story is beyond heartbreaking to me!

Camping season 2018

I had recently posted on my Facebook page, I'd like to camp by myself. A few chimed in they were too afraid to go without their husbands. Mostly pulling their RV.
Have i ever told you all, i was raised by a strong & independent mother? A woman born in the mid 30s; a daughter of a Lebanese man. Her grandparents came from Beirut. Women did not go to college so she paid for it herself & became a learning disabilities teacher. In the early 70s, she went for her master's degree in speech pathology. And 5 years ago, my dad was hospitalized, multiple times for heart conditions. We even sent my dad to Cleveland Clinic, in Ohio, to have heart surgery. When they moved my dad to a rehab facility, my mom walked a mile, one way, from her hotel, for a month, in rain & snow, to be by my dad's side until he was strong enough to be moved back to Missouri!
Last week i had a doctors appointment in Columbia. On my return, i grabbed the keys to the truck. Backed the truck & hooked up my RV, by myself! My husband checked my work & only changed one thing. And Saturday morning i pulled my RV to get new tires put on & back home. I am so proud of myself but then what would anyone expect from a girl raised by a strong women.

Two baby quilts

My cousin is having twins. She is having a boy & girl. The 2nd set of twins on my dad's side of the family. I looked for fabric that would compliment each quilt. I found this adrable ocean fabric. I washed them & shipped them to her today. Hope she likes them!

Love snow!!!

I got to wake up to a beautiful morning! Not like Spring beautiful but white beautiful! It won't last, it's supposed to warm up. But I really am enjoying it while it is here.

A quilt for Eloise

I made another baby quilt. I just got it back and washed it this morning. This is for one of my good friends, newest granddaughter, Eloise. She was born in December so it it is late in coming. I did some applique on this quilt. I hope it doesn't fall apart! I kind of winged it but I think it turned out cute.
On to the next one. I have all my blocks and I am in the process of ironing them.

An outing

Today we decided to take a road trip to the Lake of the Ozarks. We drove below the dam in hopes to see a bald eagle. We only saw buzzards. We did a little shopping. Stopped for a bite at Redheads Bar and Grill. A little more shopping and then home to a beautiful sunset. What a gorgeous end to a fun day.

Fish tacos, looked better than tasted

Jerk Chicken nachos were yummy
