How sad. Seems there are always tragedies this time of the year with school children.

We finally got some rain yesterday, but not enough, so that drew the humidity in big time. All my veggies in the garden are done except for tomatoes, peppers and one butternut squash. They should all be done by the time we go to Michigan on vacation. I also have a pineapple that will be awhile to get bigger, lemons and limes, and of course, tangerines and pomegranites on the trees. We plan on going for the whole month of June, if things work out okay for us. It is hard to travel so far with a cat and a dog.

I have been knitting slouchy hats like crazy for the holiday sale here in November. HI cannot just sit and watch tv, so I keep my hands busy. I knit 104 dish cloths for the fall markets when they start up in September.

My computer is acting up, so will close for now. Hope you all have a great day.

My sweetie took his mom and me to Hall's on the River, a restaurant near Winchester KY.The food was great and we had fun (if only it wasn't so far). The weather is cool and rainy which is good for my garden.

First visit of the season with the grands and a call from my son in Alaska! Perfect Mother's Day, I had to pull all the baby plants back inside and it was 36 with slush out! Lol! We were all cozy!

Had a lovely Mother's Day with my DS and his family and a nice long chat on the phone with my DD.
The new house is almost all set up. Still working on my craft room and the laundry room. Then I can get stated on the yard. Missing my knitting friends in Indiana, and out little art community, but getting to see my precious grands (and my darling son) almost everyday sure is wonderful.
Hope everyone is doing well.

I'm glad you had such a wonderful Mother's Day Karin. I enjoyed mine as well. I got to spend the day with all 3 of my sons and my husband. I hope everyone had a great weekend as well!

This is going to be a tough day. We found a leak behind the utility sink in the basement. We need to get a new faucet and u bend. Already returned one new faucet. I wanted a quiet day, but I got this.

I hope you will have lots of room in your new place. Our family members move so much, addresses in my address book are written in pencil!
The good news here is that we have a new faucet in the laundry sink but the bad news is that the drain pipes aren't hooked up. The pipe at the bottom of the sink is 1 1/4 inch, but the pipe at the wall is 1 1/2 inch! Kneeling on a wet concrete floor in a basement is no fun.

Marie, can't wait to see pictures of your new place. Hope you have lots of crafting room.
Hope your plumbing issues are fixed quickly Vanessa.
Trying to get use to southern weather again. We've already been in the 90s here, my old home has barely made it to 80. Thank goodness for air conditioning and a nice cool basement.
Hope everyone is well.

Unfortunately, I will not have a lots of crafting room. I couldn't convince Lowell to get one a two bedroom. <sigh> Maybe when I am single again or move in with my sister Vanessa.

You are welcome any time, but I have to warn you of the slower pace here in Kentucky. It takes a while to get acclimated.

Today Fang, my mother-in-law, my son and I drove to Ft. Boonesborough St. Park for a gathering of descendants of the pioneers. We noticed that the Buick was heating up, and water sprayed out. There was no internet so we couldn't call, but the local folks helped, the car was towed and we're coming home in a rental.
Luckily it was only the hoses, and it'll be ready Monday. We still had a good time.

We've had a few days of lovely weather here in Va. I trying to use to the heat again, so it was a nice break. Still moving things around and trying to get the new house the way I want it. We are having a garden shed built so it will be good to get everything in there. Then I can decorate the outside and start the raised beds and flowers.
Vanessa, glad the car problem wasn't worse.
Marie, have you moved yet? The actual moving part isn't any fun, but I know you're going to enjoy your new home.
Hope everyone is doing well.

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?

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.

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,

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!

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

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.

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

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.
