Summer Going By Toooooo Fast!

Here we are, the 18th of August, already. Summer is going by so very fast that I just don't know where the time goes. We have had beautiful weather this summer.

DH has done a lot of outside work, a new deck, a new walk and some landscaping. We have done very little camping this summer but on the upside, I had time to put the top of a large quilt together and as of Sunday, it is now on the quilt frames. I have done a little bit of quilting on it but since we are going camping on the weekend, I had to do some cleaning and loading of the RV. I am happy with the result of the colour combination, so I hope I won't screw up on the quilting. I hope to be able to put a picture of it soon.

This past Sunday, we decided to have a potluck supper on our shore. We had a great turnout with over 40 people showing up. We had more than enough food, all of it very delicious and the desserts were awesome. All agreed that we should do this more often.

Have a great weekend everyone!

What a Beautiful Weekend

We started off the weekend by celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary on Friday. We were out for supper with another couple. Great food and great company. The weather was really nice all weekend too. On Saturday, we just worked around the house. Sunday, DH and I, along with my brother and his wife, my nephew, his wife and his two little girls all went to my Mother's nursing home and celebrated her 91st birthday. It was fun.

Today, I put up 2 baskets of peaches. I peal them, cut them up and add a syrup and freeze them. They are awesome tasting in the middle of winter.

DH is so close to finishing the walkway to our side door. It already looks great. We have already purchased the railing for the deck and stairs, so that will next on the list of things to be done.

I have also had a few minutes lately to work on my quilt. I now have 16 squares done and have 8 more to go. I will be happy to get this one on the quilting frame. I hope to be able to put pictures of this quilt relatively soon.

Have a great week everyone!
