Four years ago today was Steph and Mike's wedding
day. I wish I had a digital picture to include here,
but I don't. It was a lovely ceremony, followed by a
nice dinner and reception. Some of you remember
Today, there was an outing to the Newport
Aquarium with two strollers
and dinner at Panera.
Sarah had a beer.
And it was a lovely day.
Happy Anniversary to Steph and Mike.
This is my mom.
She told me I'd be getting lots of company today.
Gran B came with Leah. Leah and Gran B used to
work together in Maysville years ago. They're
happy that they both live here now. Leah
brought me clothes and a toy.
I cried, but Leah said that was ok.
While they were here, the mailman brought a
package. It was clothes for me.

Bridgie. Nora says that Bridgie will let me have
cheese puffs and powdered sugar donuts when

I moved here August 3 and it's rained only twice
since then, and very little both times. This was
the 19th day this month with temperatures over
90. More rain is predicted for tomorrow.
Many empty seats at the Reds game - we can
hope it's because of the rain - but those who
came saw some fireworks.

Several years ago, Sarah got me this quilting table for my sewing machine for birthday or Christmas. I'm sure I hinted mightily for it, but I'd never used it because I could never find both top and legs at the same time except for occasionally when I wasn't quilting.
Now in my new studio I not only found both legs and top simultaneously but I have room to store it put together. It's just the thing for the quilt for Nora's room (remember the IKEA curtains) since I'm finishing the raw fused edges and quilting at the same time.
And, note the pegboard that I'm using for a design wall. I really love it because it was inexpensive and it's rigid enough that I can use clothespins at the top to hang quilts. One of these days I will run into a sale on white flannel and cover it.
