Our Winterset Huskies are STATE CHAMPS!!! It's been a busy week of softball going back and forth between Ft. Dodge and Riley's games in West Des Moines. And the heat.....can it get any hotter? However, it was 75 degrees in Ft. Dodge this morning and kept getting hotter as we traveled south back home till the car temp registered 101 degrees when we got to Winterset....ugh!
Hugs and prayers!
I started a discussion page for lunch options for the retreat. You can sign up for whatever you'd like ,or not and just go get your own at one of the eatries near the motel.
We have Kims surgery scheduled for mid November once (hopefully) harvest is finished. We have been told it's a long surgery,,over 4 hours, and a really long recovery, more than 6 months. All he's fretting about is whether or not he'll have the crop out by then! Laura will deliver the end of November so it looks like I won't be able to be there with her this time. boo.
I heard it rain a little after we had gone to bed but it's still dark so I can't tell if we got much. Driving to Iowa City we could see the crops there look so much better. Ours are losing color and curling up. We need a big hit of water.
Jan and Peg - beautiful projects!!
Jackie - prayers for that young lady!
Lynne - hope you like the new do!
Diane - good luck with the appts
We dodged the worst of the storm damage last night - altho there are a LOT of sticks to pick up in the yard (and I really don't want to go out and pick them up) - one small limb came down too - one of the neighbors had several and another had a good sized one split off a pretty young tree. A lot of the corn was laying down when I went for groceries earlier. Jeff worked almost all night - there was a lot of damage not that far south. He went back in about 4 this afternoon until who knows when. There were photos of the damage in McGregor on FB last night - they really got hit hard.
I finally have the twins' quilts layered and will start quilting one of them after supper - I'm so excited to finish them up. I have 3 other quilts layered and 2 ready to layer that I plan to quilt before I'm allowed to start anything new. I have one in my head I want to start, but I really, really need to finish some. And that's a small dent in the UFO pile. I'm down to just Friday nights at dd/dsil's so I can help with the twins Sat morning while they both work. I finally feel like I'm getting the time in at work I need to be and still have some free time at home - it's a fabulous feeling!
Speaking of the twins - they turned 1 last Saturday! It's so hard to believe. Ronin has been walking since early June and is so very busy. Freya is pulling herself up to furniture and is starting to shuffle herself around that. They both loved their first taste of cake too. Then my "little" Madison turns 3 at the end of the month - don't know where that time's gone either. I even have her box ready to mail on time for once!
Younger dd got a new job at a moving and storage company in Tacoma WA. She's pretty excited to get out of retail and have a regular M-F 8-5 work week.
The two games at Branson were really good. DGD#4's team won both games. She had three strike-outs, a 2 run Home Run, and got hit by a pitch, walked and scored the winning run of the second game. They have a #1 seed (or however you spell that term) in tournament play and will play won game today. It is a double elimination tournament. Hopefully they will play in the finals on Sat. We may get to go back up then. Sure was fun seeing her play and getting to visit with DD#1 and her hubby.
Today, I'm going to work a bit in the sewing room, getting stuff ready for the retreat, and also do some housework. Need to tend to the floors again - how come that keeps happening - them getting dirty and messy???
Have a great day, stay cool and be safe. Good luck in Iowa City, Diane.
Off to Iowa City for another round of appts. for Kim. Can't do much else in this heat so might as well spend it indoors!
No just dark brown ones! Threatened hubby I was going purple though!
