Getting back to the simple things in life, raising kids, growing most of our own food, enjoying our friends and family, and of course - Quilting and Gardening

When your kids bring you in a bouquet of flowers.....
You should put them in something.....even if they make you sneeze.
Tyler and Jessie raided my flowerbeds on Thursday night. After they brought the first blossoms in with 1/2 inch long stems, I told them to pick me a few with 12" stems. And I got the above. Which I love....although something they brought in is making my allergies act up. Maybe the catmint???? Oh well....they are pretty. A little ragged by now but still.
Busy weekend - we went to Ohio State Fair on Saturday to watch the Market Hog and Market Steer classes. And of course, Jessie came out after watching the pig show - I am so showing down here next year with a pig. So we go to watch the steer show - I'm showing in this one too next year. We'll see missy. It is an awfully expensive show for a very small chance of winning anything.
My nose? It's healing. A lovely shade of yellow right now around both eyes, still swollen but....the cut is not as noticeable today. My MIL is bringing home a tetanus shot today, and I will run down there and get the shot. Todd put Alli in the grooming chute Friday night and yesterday - and she walked in like a champ. Her and I must have been having a bad day together on Thursday. Although I still haven't walked her yet. Jessie walked her yesterday and she was ok for Jessie.
My sweater.....is coming along. All this lace makes my eyes cross. But just a few more inches to go and I will consider it long enough for me, and then will do the sleeves. I'm a little worried that it is going to be too big when I get it done. And won't that be a bummer?
Have a great day - if you are getting the heat we are (84 today) - hope you all stay cool! Kris
