So you see the knot in the wood plank on the deck. It jumps out at me. Leads down to the woodchucks, hedgehogs, and racoons under the deck. Good thing I don’t see an eye looking back at me!

Thrifting Treasures

Thursday after work I was able to stop by one of my favorite thrift shops. I haven’t been there in months and months! I did find some treasures and a necessity (the pants for our son).

IMG_3259  I paid $3.99 for them. Levi 501s. I just had to growing child put them on and they fit. Only thing is they button up instead of have a zip which I hadn’t noticed. It will be OK. He’ll grow out of them in a couple months anyway!

Summertime

September is almost over… The best thing about September is it is my son’s birthday this month. He is such a great child. He started middle school and the first week daddy got a call from his English teacher saying he is a joy to have in the class. It doesn’t get any better than that.
He is a big part of our lives. Daddy is assisting with coaching football. Our son is a gentle Ben. He is developing his skills.
I walk with him to the bus stop in the morning. I wish I could be there when he comes home from school.
I am still working at the same place. It is so hard for me in so many ways. In less than two years our house will be paid for. I hope it is all worth it.
We have a family reunion next August in San Francisco. I sure hope we can make the trip happen.
And…..quilting…..my passion! I have focused on the “Many Trips Around The World” quilt all summer. It was a big job setting in all those blocks. I have jumped around with my adult ADD to the Scrappy Bargello and a Heart quilt
