I think it looks lovely. I can't wait until I can have my own sewing/crafting room.

I have been very busy indeed. I have finally cleared a path to my sewing machine so I am able to get some sewing/mending done. It still looks a mess and at least I know where most of my stuff is.



Lowell (DH) got mad and took a bunch of my stuff down to the basement. It will be a lot of fun trying to find something I need.

I have gone back to volunteering at Whittier International Elementary School with my favorite co-worker, Mrs. Pendleton. We are the same age and just work together so well. She says she really missed me. The class is challenging. So many of them do not know how to identify letter names or make letter sounds. So many make their numbers backwards. So if they mean to write "14", they will write "41". Some of them don't even know how to write their own name. It is so sad.

I have also started working at Uncle Edgar's Mystery Bookstore every Sunday. I am paid $50.00 a week. It is nice to have the extra money.

She wrote to me and mentioned that she's not able to get on MJF until she unpack and settled. She's working part time at a books store.

It posted without letting me finish! Have been busy with quilting, spinning, making Christmas gifts, and spending time with the grands.
Marie, are you all settled in to your sweet new home? Hope everyone is doing well.

Things have been a little crazy here. A few weeks ago we took what was supposed to be a nice relaxing trip. Back to Indiana to visit my DD,on to Gatlinburg, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, then up the Blue Ridge Parkway back to the house. When we left our daughter's house my car decided to die. It had to be towed to a Suburu dealer and it took two weeks to repair. They gave us a rental and we continued the trip, all though we shortened it. Then when it was fixed we had to drive back over there to pick it up. Thankfully it was still under warranty.
It has been very dry, no rain for over three weeks. That, and the high temp, has been really hard on the plants.

Ladies, its been too long since we've posted. My mother in law just had a procedure on her carotid artery and is doing fine. We are looking for rain tomorrow.

So was it newspaper "bunting". I'd hate to think that your dogs were on a wagon on which newspaper was burning.

I am pooped out! Today was another festival in our county and as a "girl reporter" I was there for the opening ceremony and activities. Our dogs were in the pet parade, with kepi hats and bonnets made from newspaper and newspaper burning on the wagon. They were mostly good for first time participants and won the "most patriotic" award.

Fang, my sweetie plays. Its taken him a while to learn how to pick fast.
Today our adventure is a flat tire on KY9 in northern Kentucky. We had to walk a bit to get phone service but AAA will be here soon. We had a nice couple give us bottles of water. Lesson learned: be prepared.

Wow Vanessa,
Who plays the banjo?

I love bluegrass and folk music. I play a Mt dulcimer, autoharp and guitar a little. Jack of all trades master of none.

What a beautiful sunset we had! I took my Oskar Meyer for a short walk and just admired the clouds and sky. Oskar enjoyed the smalls (a week ago a skunk was hit down the road). Temperature is about 80 and cooling. A lovely evening.

Last week Fang ran over a tree root with the riding mower. The blade was stuck in the root, so we had to unhook the blade assembly and hack it loose. Today we put it all together.

This is the sunroom facing west. Fang wants a daybed along the wall.

Vanessa, looks like you are really getting some things done. Keep sharing the pictures. I love to see what you are doing.

Today we put in the trim along the floor and moved things around. Fang wants to put a bed there as a guest room and to practice his banjo.

Venessa, that is so funny and typical of a man. My sweetie never reads directions so I am always there to help him out. I always have the directions handy. It can be a very dangerous ordeal for everyone involved if he is the one putting something together. LOL

Is anyone else The Person Who Puts Stuff Together? My husband tried to make a shortcut, and almost added extra time and effort to a simple bench assembly. I have to keep power tools out of his hands when they are not required!

It has been in the 90's here, too. Hot and humid. We did have some rain today and some strong winds. I seen several branches down on the way home from my brothers house. I also seen a beautiful rainbow. In never get tired of seeing them.

We just got back from vacation in Michigan. We were there for a month. It is 1622 miles from here ne way. A long ride with a cat and a dog. We take 4 days to get there, so not too bad. It was cool there, had to wear long pants. Came home yesterday and it is in the 90s here with the heat index of 105 degrees. A big difference. We are glad to be back though, just need to get back in the swing of things.
Congrats Vanessa on FGOTM. That is an honor.
Glad to see new names on here. Hope you stay. I will post more when I can. Have a great evening,

Jan

Thank her and send her a gift. As all can see, I also was a Farm Girl of the Month. I would go to the thread and post the feelings you have right now.

I am thunderstruck! Windypines nominated me for July Farmgirl of the Month for July. Those of you who have been, is there anything you recommend I should do?
