Well it's Monday and for me that means 'back to school'. I'm thankful it's just part-time for the summer, that way I know I'll be able to complete my Hwork and still have time to deal with the house, feed the hungry teenagers and still have time to quilt. I'm so glad I"ve joined this community where the quilting bug is going strong!

Oh I would much rather be canning with CT than stand over a hot stove but I plan on doing both. Quilting is a great thing to do while waiting for the jars to pop!

The weather was calling for me to get out there and walk...so I did..vitamin D is a beautiful thing :) Then I was lucky enough to have my 14 yr. old Josh beat me at backgammon 2 outta 3 games.

Well it's Father's Day and I hope everyone's having a peaceful day. I'm lucky enough to be able to call mine and wish him a happy day even though he's not in the area. He always makes me smile. He's selfless and loving and has had a hard life. He always has a chuckle in his voice when we talk, trying to let me know he's doing okay. Always supportive in what I'm doing and shares in my joys and sorrows. He's a great dad!
