Summer Fun

Above WOULD BE  a shot of the boys in the pool at Put in Bay  but the picture won't post!  We went with 9 couples to celebrate DH's 50th birthday.  Such fun!  We had a great time.  It's still hard to get back to the real world.

Two a days start Thursday for DS1's football.  DS2 is at summer camp this week.  DD2 and I went to look at my alma mater last Thursday.  Sniff, I can't believe she is a senior this year!  DD1 is busy working at her internship at the health clinic.  We jokingly call it her "big girl job".  It has been a wonderful experience and she is very motivated to go back to school in the fall.

We are spending a few lazy summer days before we gear up for back to school shopping, etc.  My youngest DS has outgrown everything.  Much bribery will take place next week to get him to try on clothes and shop for new.  I don't think we have too much that still fits other than ratty t-shirts and gym shorts.  His outfits of choice, I'm sure.  We will have to shop for football cleats this weekend as his practices start on Monday.

As far as quilting and sewing go?  I'm dreaming of it, but not much else.  My sewing area is on the third floor of our old house.  My DD1 has her bedroom there.  Everything she brought home from college is spread EVERYWHERE.  I moved my machine to the kitchen to do some mending but haven't had a chance to do any quilty projects.  I plan to practice with my BSR foot this afternoon so I can start quilting the star quilt.  To pin baste I usually tape the backing to the carpet, spread the batting out and then the quilt on top.  My vaccuum burned up last Friday and is at the repair shop.  It's an Oreck and I love it.  One black lab and one calico cat equal too much hair to lay out a quilt without vaccuuming daily.  Hopefully it will be ready for pick up today.

I'm off to the store to buy mass amounts of pasta salad ingredients.  I agreed to make pasta salad for 100 hungry players and coaches for the first two-a-day meal on Thursday.

What was I thinking?!!

Piece all.  Hope you're being quilty.  I do SEW miss it!
