Hello Dear Friends! I hope you have celebrated the holiday weekend with loving family and friends. We enjoyed some quiet days at home this weekend... visited the parade on Saturday... I crafted in the shop & meet some wonderful gals who came to visit... and today Tony & I had lunch together at our favorite burger joint.
We love Freddy's and had a chance to meet Freddy himself today. He is a WWII Veteran... we enjoyed hearing his stories from those days... and, as always, enjoyed our burgers. We were even treated to free custard's for dessert today! (My husband, Tony, is an Army Veteran.) Freddy is a very kind, personable man... and greets everyone with a hug. He is such a sweetheart!
Trinity always salutes the military in the parade.
Everyone and their dog celebrates here!
Tomorrow is my stepDad's surgery. He and my Mom are taking care of blood work orders today... and visiting with my stepSister, Laurie. He also had to get a tooth pulled early this morning. Yes, I about freaked when my Mom told me about that... but then she said it wasn't anything really because the tooth was about to fall out on its own. Good grief! I'm thinking he is already going through enough... right? Well, I'll be headed to Topeka after I drop Trinity off at school in the morning... so I can be with my family in the waiting room... visiting, praying, and cheering him to good health again. Thank you again for continued prayers for him. We really appreciate it.
I wanted to give you a quick reminder about the Wool Challenge that Patchwork Posse is hosting. It is off to a great start... with interviews, tips, instructions, and patterns already. This morning, I filled out my interview questions. I sent them to Becky along with the doodle pattern for the snowman rug above... she said she will work on writing up my challenge info and have it up by Friday. I'm worried I wrote her too much of a life story... but I do have a passion for crafting... and sometimes you just can't shut me up when I'm on a craft~talk~role!
Well... on that note... I have some needlepunching to get back to. Wishing you all warm smiles...
