Well for all the hoopla that we have been hearing about all week about mighty Earl he kind of pooped out before her got to central Maine. We are getting pretty steady rain, which we need so badly as it has been so hot all summer. Hopefully the lawns will perk up a bit now. Not much for wind, 25 mph, a good Nor'easter would put that to shame. We were prepared though, we got the boat out of the lake, put away all the deck chairs and such. Better safe then sorry.
The horses are out in the rain right now. They love it, they don't have to wear their masks when it rains as there aren't any flies to drive them crazy. They get a good bath too. :o) The masks are kind of hot, not bad, but they do sweat around their ears a bit. I think they look cute in their masks though, I always think of the line from Zorro 'who is that masked stranger!'
Funsize, Miss T and I went on a trail ride one day when it wasn't in the searing 90's. It's always fun to get out on the carriage roads on a beautiful day and enjoy the woods, wildlife, riding and just being together.
The new road is coming along good. Earl slowed down progress a little with the rain but it will only be a few days and they can be back there working again. It's about 2/3's done.
I like playing on the equipment, makes me feel powerful! :o)
Dad and I were walking the other morning and I saw the black bear headed for the woods. He seems to hang around each year but doesn't do much damage, maybe tear down the occasional bird feeder. When I walk alone I like to carry a can of Raid just in case he decides that I look like a good meal........
I'm back quilting again. My friend Needled Mom sent me a quilt book and I have been happily stitching away on a quilt for Miss T for Christmas. Also have been repairing some of the wall hangings that I rescued from the cottage when it flooded. I made them ten years ago. I love doing applique' and just couldn't throw these out.
I went to a new quilt shop on Friday to pick up another jelly roll, this one is all Christmas fabric and then spotted another one that I loved plus a few more things to work on. I guess I am out of my sewing funk! :o) Thank you NM!!! xoxo
Aren't these hand towels darling?! I'm waiting for the patterns to come in, I think they would make for a nice Give Away nearer to Christmas, what do you think? These would work up really quickly and I bought some spare towels too so I am ready to roll! :o)
We're headed to the lake today. My sister and her friend Ruth are bringing lunch! Yippee! Never turn down a free lunch!!
