We finally made it home from visiting DD in Boston.  We had a wonderful time with her including a stay on the cape and some beautiful beach days. At some point  United decided to change our flight from 7 am to 5 am without telling us.  It’s a good thing I use the app to check in ahead of time.  That gave us a 3 hour layover at O’Hare yesterday. After about two hours of waiting I got notice that our flight to CR was cancelled and we were rebooked - for today!!  So annoying.  We tried to rent a car and just drive back but not one rental company had one available.  After numerous attempts, we found a hotel for the night.  I was not a happy camper.  Thank goodness we got back before the rains today.  My luggage is apparently still in Chicago - grrrr!  They are supposed to deliver it some time today but I got a  text saying I’d be updated every 12 hours so who knows.  United will not be getting a good review this time!,

Is there a special process or need to be recommended, to be added to the Facebook page?  I've been in a pending status for about 2 weeks. Robert Kent from Algona, IA.

But is it really necessary to use three in one shower?  It's only been a couple of weeks since youngest moved, I'm used to my empty nest already.

Just be glad your oldest is really, really clean, Lynne!!

Had a fun weekend with our Sweet C here. She is such a happy baby.  It's funny to see such a little squirt crawling all over the place and trying to pull herself up already.  Grandpa had to miss it since he had tickets to the NHRA drag races in Brainard this weekend.  

Back to business this morning, lots of laundry.  Oldest sure seems to use a lot of towels!  We should be done with corn in a couple of days.  

Hopefully I can get a little time in the sewing room too.  I need to remake all those geese!

Enjoy those grandbabies!!  They grow up so fast!!!

DH has a terrible toothache.  It started late Friday night, but he didn't bother to tell me until last night.  Think he will call the dentist today to see what needs to happen.  Probably a root canal.  I feel badly for him!!

I am working on the blue/white quilt.  It will be a table topper, but not sure my color placements are the best.  Oh well, it is for me, so it will just have to be okay.  No doubt some good quilting will make it more interesting!!!

Have a good week.

We are watching John & Jaelyn today while mom and dad go to the fair.  I went over to their house at 7:45 this a.m., then around 10:45 Kaci & Riley came over to help me get them in the car to bring to our house.  They have been pretty good except that Jaelyn is hard to get down for a nap right now.  Aunt Bobbi and Uncle TJ came to help tag team!  It takes a village!!

Tried it, she wants nothing to do with it.  Put her in the crib, let her fuss for about 10 minutes and she is out.

Haven't figured out the eating schedule yet though.  We went from two full front and back pages of instructions the first time to here she is have fun this time!

Go ahead and do it Lynne! That's what grannies are for. We won't tell

Grandma is struggling with this just put the baby in the crib with her paci and let her fall asleep, it's ok if she cries a little.  I just want to wrap her up in a blanky and rock!
