Summer Days Coming To An End


Soon, very soon, the summer days will be traded in for a rigorous school schedule even though I have no school age children at home. Soon, the house will again be all mine from early morning until dinner time:) Walts students arrive next week and he is excited to say the least. He is preparing the classroom now and we will decorate his new office tomorrow:)

I too am excited to get back on a structure based day! I will miss a few things like afternoon naps, sneaking mid week horseback rides while tourists are few. The evening sunsets and beach fires will have to be limited to weekends I'm sure. I wonder if I'll miss the constant question, " What are ya doing now Babe?" or.... I'm bored, what ya wanna do?" Naaaaaa......
The grand kids too will start school soon, so I guess I wont see them as much either. I have so enjoyed visitors this summer... I hope they come for long week ends now! I have a huge workload myself, and a busy travel schedule to match it! I'm STILL trying to get to Mntreal this fall, but it really is looking doubtful. I really would like to clone myself sometimes. Maybe just for a few days? Hey! I havent checked those lottery tickets yet, maybe...............

I managed to quilt a few of my own little things. Ya know how I did it? I had them in the appointment schedule on the whiteboard!!! When it came to them, I smiled and said HA!! thats how MY STUFF gets done. So I had a fun couple hours in between binding the last giant, which I'll post tomorrow after photographing it. Tonight I worked on my Dresdens project, (yes, shes still at it). This is a wal hanging that will hang in the entrance to the studio, and the squirrel is just a little table topper for fall. No biggy quickies, but it sure felt good to do something of mine! It felt so good that I put 2 quilts in line that my friend Sharon sent to me a few months ago! ( I should get to them in october! lol) No complaints mind you, except that I desparatly need better time management. I think blogging at days end is a new good thing... maybe.... I just need all of my desktop files linked to notebook now dont I? Goodnight, dont let the bed bugs bite:)

Hi Terri, they arent ours, we have a retired teacher friend who rents them out here. We ride when we can. Its a wonderful different prospective to see the dunes on horseback as opposed to walking through acres and acres of sand:) Its just amazing the wildlife back there(plantlife too) we saw deer, bobcat, jack rabbits, etc.. all within a stones throw from a bazillion people on the beaches.
