How very wonderful! The pictures, the skirt, friends and time with family--stuff that makes life a blessing!

Thanks for your prayers, Joanne. I'm still waiting for a call, and I have tried to be productive, but it seems like I'm getting stuck. So off I go for a quiet time and some afternoon resting and reading (maybe folding and getting dinner prepped). I look forward to getting together I can spit a cherry pit farther :)

With Joy,


summer and i haven't been much of friends my whole life -- but i'm workin' on it. i had the boys playing outside for two hours today. i'm so proud of myself.

Wow--your summer days are inspiring! I'm going to try to soak up each minute before girlie #2 starts school in the fall!

Sounds like you are having a great summer. I am still counting down the days until my vacation starts. I have the list of projects that I want to tackle. It always amazes me that I just get into my summer groove and then it is over and school is starting again.

The skirt is really cute and I am totally jealous of all that yummy fabric. I think that I am going to make one of the book covers from your tutorial while I am on vacation. I got the cutest pink fabric with multi-colored pastel polka dots.

Now it is off to bed with me. Tomorrow morning I am serving at a the June Dairy breakfast before I go into work. Each little Wisconsin town has a Dairy Breakfast -- ours is at the Agricultural Research Station. It starts at 4am -- can you say "OH MY GOODNESS THAT'S EARLY!" and ends at 9am. I am assigned to scoop vanilla ice cream to servie with fresh strawberries. Last year I had the cream puff station -- I think that I ate as many as I served. Hmmm, could that be why I'm not at that station this year?
